Q: I lost my front teeth in a slip & fall accident in a government building. I was given a claim form. How do I...
... pay for the dental repairs? I am in therapy now because of the lost teeth stigma.
A: I'm sorry about your accident. I hope you're okay. It could depend on how the accident occurred, who would be liable, what the entity is and their policy is, whether you currently have coverage, and other factors. If you arranged a free initial consult with an attorney, they should be able to outline your rights and options. Good luck
A: Addendum - it's possible your matter could involve notice of claim issues. That means short deadlines in which to make written notice of a claim. Your post does not include a state, but your best bet may be to try to arrange a free initial consult with a law firm in your state without delay to learn if these apply. Good luck
