Don’t Let Broken Bones Break the Bank, TooApril 21, 2016
One moment she was enjoying watching her favorite basketball team play a big game, and the next, she was sprawled out flat on the ground and in tremendous pain.
“Sharon” (not a real person) was attending her alma mater’s season clincher, a hotly contested game against her school’s hated rival. With a possible March tournament berth at stake to boot, the arena was packed to the rafters and buzzing with excitement.
Sharon waited until a time-out was called in the middle of the second half to squeeze out of her seat and head toward the bathroom. She wanted to get some refreshments without having to fight a large crowd. As she reached the top of the stairs in her section, however, she lost her balance on a wet spot on the floor and tumbled down the flight of steps, breaking her arm and ankle.
For anyone, it would have been a painful experience. For Sharon, however, it was doubly injurious; Sharon’s job requires her to be physically active, and the injuries she suffered at the game had a debilitating effect on her performance. She tried to keep up with the demands of the job, but just couldn’t, and had to stop working until she was healed. With her medical bills mounting, and with a disabled mother in the house to look after, Sharon sought the advice of a personal injury attorney to discuss her options.
The staircase Sharon fell down had lacked a handrail. In addition, the spill at the top of the steps had been seen by multiple members of the arena staff but no one had cleaned it up, nor had they placed a warning sign. Her attorney advised her to file suit against the arena for negligence.
While the arena fights her claims in court, Sharon continues to bleed money. Her attorney told her to call USClaims.
