Stockton, CA asked in Personal Injury for California

Q: Hello, I fell out of an Otis elevator when the door opened and it was approx. 5-8 inches above the lobby floor.

I reported the injury to my supervisor at work. WC claim was filed. I will be having surgery to my low back on 12/01/2020 due to the fall. No attorney wants to handle my personal injury claim because, I am told Otis is hard to deal with and they will try every trick in the book not to pay a claim. I am filing my complaint myself because my deadline is 01/28/221. Can somebody review my complaint for me?

A: Sounds like you have a good personal injury as well as a good worker’s compensation case.

A: You need to contact a personal injury attorney. I have never heard that Otis is hard to deal with. I will say ALL defendants are hard to deal with because they don't want to pay out any money. You need to keep trying and you should be able to find an attorney to help you. If you do it on your own you could make fatal mistakes so be careful and try again to get an attorney to take your case...
