I was taking my daughter to a doctor's appointment at a hospital and a piece of re-bar was sticking out in the parking lot. I tripped over it and fell down. I scraped my knee and hurt my arm and hip. I went to in to hospital and they check me out. Then told me to call patient relations and they told me, they would not cover any of medical bills. Can I sue them?
This is a potential personal injury claim, but many more facts are needed. I would find a Personal Injury lawyer in your area and get a free consultation from a couple. This seems like a premise liability case and you have damages, but a good Personal Injury lawyer can tell you more.
Most all PI cases are done on a contingency basis, meaning they don't get paid unless they settle your case. If a lawyer wants money up front, be careful you know what you are paying for.
