Accident Victim: I fell in a parking lot while getting into my car. I had opened the door and was in the process of getting in when I stepped in a pothole, pretty big and deep one (I took pictures) and twisted my knee and fell flat to the pavement. The store offered me an ambulance, but I felt pretty stupid and figured I would be okay, but my knee and lower back have only gotten worse. That was three days ago and I did see my family doctor. Can you help me?
Slip and Fall Accident Attorney: Yes. Case law is clear that the act of entering a vehicle is such that your own auto insurance will pay up to $10,000 in medical expense and lost wage coverage with basic protection. You do not have to worry about a raise in rates or them dropping you. I would like to review the pictures but it sounds as though the pothole is a negligent condition and we can have the property owner’s liability insurance carrier pay you for pain and suffering.
