I can't work my back is wrecked the neuropathy in my feet is getting worse I have no recourse it's pretty obvious that an ice machine without a rubber mat under it in a very busy area on a tile floor would be a hazard yes I can't believe that I have to prove negligence there
The standard in these cases is was there a dangerous condition on the property for which the property owner either knew or should have known. Proving this usually hinges upon how long the condition existed prior to your accident and/or whether they had ever had any prior incidents same or similar to yours. Talk with your attorneys about these issues.

Attorney will take no action on your behalf unless and until a written retainer agreement is signed. There are strict time deadlines on filing claims and, as such, you are advised to consult with and retain an attorney immediately to file such claims timely or you will lose any right to recovery.

You should consult with another attorney. Many attorneys don't really know how to do slip and fall cases. It's a higher burden of proof. But there is something called constructive notice. I will talk to another attorney as soon as possible especially if you are in litigation. We are not allowed to solicit for business on this board.

I assume you slipped and did something to your feet and back. If the machine was creating a puddle like every single day, I would think you have a strong case on liability.
Sorry for the pain you are dealing with and your accident. Generally speaking, you need to provide your attorney with all the necessary (and seemingly unnecessary) and they need to prove the legal elements (like the fact that there was a hazard). If you are unhappy with the legal direction of your case, you should certainly get a second opinion from another personal injury attorney.
