I'm in California and slipped and fell at a walmart as i was leaving-i slipped on a chocolate candy wrapper that was on the floor. Their claims department called me two days later to confirm and i told them i had fractured my elbow. They said they would call me back in two weeks and to follow my doctors orders. I have been paying my copay and following the doctor's instructions. Should i continue talking to walmart's claims dept or should i get a lawyer? since i've been covering all my copays will i owe my health insurance anything if i get something from walmart? how long will all this take? if i need a lawyer, what is a fair % for the lawyer to ask for?
