I broke my ankle back in June when I stepped in a hole while walking across a grassy area on the lawn at my apt complex. Immediately after the fall, the apt manager and several staff came to help me. An ambulance was called because I could not bear weight. I did not go to the ER but had help getting to Urgent care where xrays determined the break. I followed up with a podiatrist. It was a clean break so I did not need surgery. My healing was slow. I had monthly xrays and follow up appts. Last month I was told I was healed. I am suppose to start physical therapy. After this happened, I contacted the apt manager to ask for help with expenses. She said yes, the management company would help. They have paid for a knee scooter and dog walking fees and a few copays. My apt complex was then bought by another management company. I remained in contact with the original management company. Once they saw my recovery was delayed my case was turned over to their insurance. I have not received any further payment. The insurance adjuster seems to be dragging her feet. I contacted a lawyer and spoke to someone over the phone. They said they would consider my case and wanted me to email them the em
It sounds like a lot was going on here and there needs to be a discussion in greater detail regarding the particular facts in your case. Without more information it is not possible to give an opinion about this. The best advice would be to set an appointment with an attorney who specializes PERSONAL INJURY (Slip and fall) cases. Then after a thorough review of all of the facts, they can give you an opinion as to whether you have a viable claim, and what procedural steps you should take. Most attorneys handle these cases on a contingency percentage fee, taking a percentage of the recovery. In contingency fee arrangements, there are no hourly fees. In Texas we do not charge anything for an initial appointment to discuss your case I would suggest that you begin your search for an attorney on this Avvo website. There is a tab "Find A Lawyer" on the home page of Avvo at www.avvo.com that will help you find a lawyer in this practice area in your locale. Good luck!
