In April of 2018 I fell on my niece's porch from a hole in the rotted wood. It resulted in me falling down five stairs and landing on my arm. I hurt my back, my tailbone, and my right wrist. I could not move on my own I was lifted into the car by my mother and my niece and taken to the emergency room. I was examined and I was told that I would need surgery on my right wrist because it was severely broke. I was scheduled for surgery a couple days later and they had to put titanium plates in my right wrist to join the bones back together I am still having severe problem with it hurting and giving out on me and my insurance paid for the surgery I'm wondering if I can file on their homeowners insurance for pain and suffering and doctor say I can have surgery redone and take these plates out for better comfort. My insurance has paid for all of my medical bills including surgery and I'm wanting to know if I can file and how long it would take to get compensated Or reimbursed? I'm looking for an attorney in Columbia, Missouri
yes, but you will likely need an attorney to help you. Your health insurance may be entitled to repayment, there may be medical payments coverage that will help you and your injuries are serious! This is not the kind of thing most folks can handle without an attorney.
