I am a Californoia Attorney, so the Statute of limitations period I will refer to may be different in your jurisdictin but I strongly encourage you to consult with a local attorney.
First, you may have a cause of action against the City, a municipality, for Slip and Fall.
Second, you have to act quick and file a claim against the City oif Richmond and the Public Works Department or similar entity that fixes the road. If the street is maintained by the county, you may have to include them as defendants. Or if the City contracts out the work to third parties you may have to sue them too. If you do not know that at this time, no sweat. You will file a lawsuit against 25 Does.
The time to file a claim against a municipality varies. In California is a maximum of six months. If you do not file within that period, with a few ewxceptions for a minor or extreme incapacitation, you may lose your chance to do so.
Third, just because you file does not mean you will recover. But if you don't for sure you will waive your rights. Whichg at this time you do not want to do. This is the type of case that is most ofeten litigated and you will need a lawyer to recoiver your damages. So, do it now!!!
Let me know if this advice was helpful.
Take care of yourself!!
