    Default Damages Suffer by Mate of Slip and Fall Victim

    My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: Pa.

    A house sidewalk had a section removed to install a drainage pipe. It was left this way for months. I slip on the muddy pipe and broke and dislocated my leg. Horrid pain. Surgery that afternoom. They put three pins and a plate into my leg. A cast on the leg of course. Three days in hospital.

    Returned home to my girl friend of 20 years. Of course, she took care of me to a great extent. We began to fight alot. She attempted suicide. She spent six days in mental hospital. THe cause of her illness in my honest opinion was more than 20% from the fall and my recovery but less than 80%.

    Would she be entitled to recover loses from the home owner? If the work on the sidewalk was done by a contractor, could he be held responsbile for my and/or my girlfriends suffering?

    I am assuming the no is in reply to can my girlfriend collect damages.
    If so, can the contractor, if any, be held fully or partially responsible for my injuries?
