Q: I fell at the Dodge dealership and they took me to their Dr. It was brokee and requires surgery Do I have a case?

It is a right radial intraarticular fracture involving surgery on this Wednesday, involving a plate and screws and physical therapy, that's just the beginning. I have pics, I was wearing tennis shoes. And they insisted I see their Dr. Their Hr guy took my name and their courier took me to their facility. After many attempts to get a claim number and their insurance info, they finally gave it to me today. They said they never filed a claim. Now I saw their Dr. And was referred to an ortho of their choosing. They have Ferderated Insurance. I have many pics of where I fell and the shoes and injuries I have.

A: You have a case if the dealership was more than 50% responsible for your fall. The fault finding would ultimately be up to a jury, but you can get a settlement if the adjuster agrees about the fault assessment. I would be interested to know about all the facts that led up to a caused the fall. There may very well be a case for you to pursue, it just depends on all the facts. I'd be more than happy to go over the matter in more detail with you.

A: First, you can go to a doctor of your choice. Second, contact a member of the Kansas Trial Lawyers Assn--they give free consults. You dont' want to be talking to them without legal advice. It sounds like a significant injury, and you may have already said things that aren't helpful. Enough of the DIY. Kansas Trial lawyers Assn members take cases on a contingent fee so you don't have to pay up front.
