and lots of painnnnnnnn. can you give me a ball park figure on these types of injuries?
I'm sorry to hear about your injury and resulting surgery. I hope you are on the mend.
There is no way to provide you with a ball park figure for a demand or ultimate value of such a claim. Your total medical bills, the amounts paid by insurance (if charges were paid by insurance), loss of income, loss of future income, loss of earning capacity, and your level of pain and suffering all need to be weighed to determine a fair value for your claim.
You should consult with a personal injury attorney (one that is comfortable handling premises liability and also product liability cases) and review all of the above factors.
The statute of limitations for personal injuries caused by negligence is 2-years from the injury.

More information is needed to estimate the value of your claim. You should contact me or another California licensed personal injury attorney to discuss the case in detail. In general you are entitled to collect for your past and future medical expenses, loss of earnings, pain, mental suffering/emotional distress, enjoyment of life, physical impairment, inconvenience, grief, anxiety and humiliation. You do not state where this occurred, so there could be an issue as to the insurance coverage available. You will also need to discuss the reimbursement of any health insurance liens or reimbursement rights, and the payment of any other liens that may apply to your situation. The most important advice I can give you is to contact an attorney for acvice and representation in this matter.

As the others have stated, it is impossible to place an estimate on the value of a claim without more specifics. As a matter of practice I avoid giving potential clients any estimate until I they have completed their treatment or are declared by their doctors to have achieved their maximum medical improvement. Only then will you know the full impact of the accident.
I encourage you to speak to a personal injury attorney. The consultation should be free of charge and there is no obligation. I would welcome your call if you wish to discuss the case further.
