I am legally disabled housewife from an unrelated problem. I fell on a very wet floor in receiving bay of car dealership. I have medicare & private insurance that has paid 98% expenses, but as a result, I had two surgeries to repair a compound fracture to my femur & will have another to repair the lower rod of my knee replacement. I was walking fine & unaided prior to the fall. The area was covered in rainwater at 9am, cars lined up to be received, and when I arrived there was at least an inch of standing water in the bay where cars were being dropped off. After I fell, one of the employees exclaimed "This happened to someone last year!" & another employee said, "we're slipping and falling all the time on this floor." I was given great care at the business prior to the ambulance arrival.
