I fell at a Gym after a woman moved a bench, fractured back, rotated pelvis SI joint. I investigated the codes for Bench requirements in Gyms and discovered in writing if it were built today the benches would have to be bolted down.. They were grandfathered in. Since it is code now there could be legal consequences according to the city investigator. I have a serious injury, last month went to hospital and attempted Kyphoplasty but vertebrae collapsed. I previously had a fusion in the area, so unusual for this to happen. Extremely painful. Met with adjuster, they are only offering at this point out of pocket up to 5,000. What is your take on Liability? Is there an M.D. attorney willing to respond?Failed to say I was taken to hospital by ambulance and stayed in hospital 5 days , I could not get out of bed . Had an MRI and CT and the radiologist did a comparison from 2010 fusion CT and current CT. Very clear results. Am facing future possible surgery, two discs and one other vertebrae were involved. I had a huge hematoma in the front of my stomach showing up a month later; as it showed up on MRI.. I am now 1 1/2 inches shorter and hard to stand up straight, wear a custom belt.. Also the Insurance company is not responding to my inquiry about when I am going to be reimbursed for out of pocket so far over 2,000 out of pocket and several outstanding bills..
