How Much Is A Torn Knee Meniscus Slip And Fall Worth? Here’s What You Need To Know!
Property owners have a responsibility to keep their property safe. In this case, the shopping center allowed a pothole to go unrepaired leading to the personal injury set forth below.
Our client was pushing shopping cart of groceries when a wheel got stuck in a pothole. As the loaded cart fell over, it struck our client’s right knee.
In obvious pain, another customer ran over to help our client with her groceries and helped her to her car. Our client called the manager on duty and completed an incident report.
Within a few days of our clients fall, Stop and Shop had repaired the hole our client’s cart got stuck in.
During treatment for the knee injury, her physician referred her for an MRI, which established a posterior tear to the medial meniscus.
An orthopedic took her into surgery to repair the torn meniscus caused form the slip and fall. She continued to follow up with her orthopedic surgeon and she also attended physical therapy pre-surgery and post-surgery.
