Re: I Got Hurt at an Amusment Park
I'm betting it wouldn't have been so easily missed if you didn't have a camera glued to your face.
If a person had tripped their prior and the zoo was alerted to the problem, you have a good chance of getting your med bills paid.
Liability is often based on whether the incident was foreseeable. If it was foreseeable and the zoo failed to take action to prevent the situation, they are negligent and most likely liable.
all you can really do is make a claim with the zoo and see how they react.
How long ago did this happen? A bone spur takes time to develop. If it has been less than a couple months, minimum, the spur was not caused by the fall. If it has been a couple months, hopefully you filled out an incident report. If you didn't, give up now.
a lot of bruising, swelling, scratches, and a little bone spurt which required me to have a cortisone shot inserted into my elbow, due to the pain.
but a lot of bruising, swelling, and scratches? Did you get back up and fall a few more times for good measure?
