I live in Massachusetts. Quick question--The floor was so soaked that it puddled. A mat was in front of stand, table or whatever they call it--that was the source of the water. The broccolli was surrounded by crushed ice that had melted and soaked through the mat and puddled on the floor. I did manage to catch myself fom hitting the floor--but pulled upper and lower back muscles by doing so. There were no caution signs. I immediately notified a nearby clerk who called the manager/ while waiting for the manager the clerk mopped the floor and put the caution signs out. The manager thought the signs were there, and the floor was only slightly wet--from the mopping. Thank goodness I looked to the side of the same counter and the floor was soaked. I did see my Dr. the next day.
Someone told me that because I am on w/comp I will only be reimbursed for my expenses--dr. appt. and medication. I was flat on my back for close to 2 weeks. My back is still not 100%.
Would I be entitled to pain and suffering settlement? Just curious/
