I am very sorry to hear this. You should find an experienced personal injury attorney in your area right away. The defect that caused your accident needs to be photographed before it is corrected or changed. These type of cases depend heavily on the specific facts and circumstances of the situation and the evidence needs to be preserved. The attorney can evaluate your chance of success. You can find a good attorney attomey in your area on avvo.com. Good luck to you.

I am licensed to practice law in Florida and you should consult with an attorney in your area for legal advice.

Ask those you trust and respect for attorney recommendations. Interview, phone is fined, a few then perhaps follow it up with a face to face and look to hire the attorney you are most comfortable with and confident in. Do not speak with MacDonald's or their claim minimizers. Good luck.
It appears that you might have a good liability claim against McDonalds. They will argue that the concrete was open and obvious or that you were not paying attention. Talk to an attorney before you talk to their insurance company. They do not interview you to help you.
