View Full Version : Bizarre injury is confusing my legal options

My neighbor was washing his car the other day, and he allowed his son to play with water and soap near where my car was parked. While walking to my car I slipped because it was wet and very soapy. When I slipped, I fell down, and my head thankfully hit the grass. But, my bad knee has been hurting even worse ever since. Hopefully this pain subsides in the next couple days, but I am not about to pay for more surgery if this soapy slip is what caused it.

If the pain doesn’t go away, and I decide to sue, how can I prove that this new knee injury is of direct result of the fall? (I have already had two knee surgeries, last in ‘04).

Should I see an Personal Injury Attorney (http://www.jamessextonlaw.com/) now? Maybe they can give me some preliminary guidance to track my knee pain. Anyone have experience dealing with pre-existing injuries and suits?

Have you even talked to your neighbor before thinking about lawyering up?

theres some special clause just for that, the "previous injury clause" or something to that effect... i would call a personal injury lawyer....

What kind of a person would sue because they're clumsy?

RPF's has a high placement on google. The OP is trying to embed a link to his law practice on RPF to raise its google rank.

You are the first to notice it, congratulations. I was wondering if anyone would.

Good catch. :eek: It's really the only logical explanation too, considering the view I imagine most here have on frivolous lawsuits. Sometimes the ground outside gets wet. Shit happens. :rolleyes:

I don't usually say this, but it sounds like a mod edit might be warranted...you know, to make the original post point to every single competiting law firm instead of the one the thread-starter wanted it to point to. ;)

Agreed. If true, close thread
