Q: Last March, I slipped on a metal plate and hurt my hips and back, can I get damages?
I went to physical therapy for quite awhile and also to Pain Management for cortisone and a nerve blocker. The pain has gone from horribly sharp to an ache, which is worse when I am tired, however now it affects my left side as well as my right. Because of it, the things I love to do, such as biking and walking, are draining. I can still do them, but, due to the slip, they are way less enjoyable. I don't know who owns the metal plate, probably a company or town unfortunately due to SOL. It happened in a North shore town, but I have since moved to Worcester county. Thanks.
A Massachusetts attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. It sounds like you sustained damages, but the other element that needs to be determined here is whether your injuries are attributable to the negligence of another party. You could contact Massachusetts injury attorneys to discuss further. If an attorney sees a basis for a viable case, they could investigate the accident. Attorneys who handle these types of cases often give free initial consults. Good luck
