My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: MI
MY wife was out to eat for lunch at a local place. After eating on their way out she slipped on apiece of cement floor that was protruding in the place. She fell and severly bruised here arm/knee the pain which has gotten worse over the last few days.
She saw the family doctor who checked her out and at the moment there was no serios injury. He was concerned about long term risk arthritis, etc.
The store manager said they have been meaning to get that floor fixed but havent gotten it done yet. My wife has so far:
Made a statement with their "claims dept". They wanted her to release the medical exam from our doctor which we had no problem doing.
Taken pictures of the accident scene and of her injures.
We havent spoken to an injury lawyer yet because the company seems very friendly are we being naive? Should we have an injury attorney taking over at this point? What if they offer us a settlement without us having an attorney?
Any help you could give would be great. If anymore information is needed we will be happy to post whatever we can.
Thank you in advance.
