I slipped on uncleared ice while working on State property. I broke my ankle had plate 6 screws, sprained other ankle, had arthroscopic surgery on both knees. I also fell down the stairs while in a cast and damaged each shoulder-surgery on both. The cast for my ankle was too tight and caused bunions on both sides of my foot which require future surgery. However, I am collecting workman's comp.
It's been almost a year since original injury and my ankle is still very painful--can't walk far or stand long. I also have been replaced at work. So I will have no job when cleared. I'm 58 & regret being forced to start over again.
Court date slipped with the attorney general 3x. What can I expect for a settlement value or what would be fair?The fall was 2:40pm at a State IRA. The parking lot was not initially cleared that day following an ice storm the day before. The snow plow and I arrived at the same time that day--him to plow, me to attend a meeting. When I fell, plow man found me on the ground and got help to assist me in building--could not walk.
