I slipped in a Home Depot bathroom, filed a report with the manager about the injured hand/wrist, took photos of the floor and my damaged shoe. HD corporate offered to reimburse me for what I estimated would be the cost of my physical therapy co-pays and the replacement value of my shoes. They sent me the offer in writing, which I had the good sense not to sign nor to reply to. I have since learned that the injury extends into my forearm and will take 6-12 months to heal. I am a licensed esthetician, so I will be unable to earn wages in that capacity for the rest of the year. I think I have a case, but one law firm said it wasn't "catastrophic" enough and another advised me to contact HD's medical insurance claims dept for reimbursement. How do I factor in subrogation & unemployment?
