Q: Hi I fell last year in Oct 31 in the Grand Sierra Resort and i had just arrived
And I walked into the rest room and I slipped on water and there was no sign that said it was wet and I hurt my back and they lied to me they called an ambulance and saith for me not to worry that they would cover all expenses for the hospital as well and now I'm getting charged and they are refusing to pay it off and they where rude and laughed at me while I was in pain
A: Slip and fall cases can be quite challenging. Property owners and insurance companies make promises and (at times) do not follow up or honor those promises. For most personal injury cases, a free consultation is provided by the local personal injury attorneys. The pursuit of the case by the attorney will depend on a number of factors. Contact a local personal injury attorney to discuss your case, legal rights, and recommended courses of action.
Dale S. Gribow agrees with this answer
were there med bills after that?
contact a local lawyer from that area or file in small claims court.
i would send letter memorializing all the facts and giving them 10 days to pay or you will pursue any and all civil and or criminal remedies at your disposal....and i would attach to small claims action.
this is why people need to see a lawyer when the incident happens.
