A: Legal issues aside, based on your description, she should seek a follow-up medical evaluation, where she will probably be referred to an orthopedic consult. She could reach out to attorneys to try to arrange a free initial consult to discuss the incident. Good luck

A: Addendum - If this matter involves any public agencies or entities, it would be advisable to seek guidance without further delay. Public agencies or entities could involve short notice of claim requirements (in other words, very short deadlines to initiate claims) - seek the guidance of an attorney on this without delay if you contemplate pursuing legal rights. Good luck
