Is this a valid premises liability case?

by Janet
(Elkton, Maryland)

While I was shopping a clothes rack came down on top of me injuring my hand. I have been to the hand specialist for treatment. Everything looks great now, 6 months later.

How much should I ask for from the store's insurance company?

They keep calling me and I don't know. My hand is fine now and should be in the future. Thanks.

ANSWER for "Is this a valid premises liability case?":

Janet (Elkton, MD):

I would need to know how the rack came down (to determine liability) and a few more details about the incident to give a proper analysis.

Secondly, unless you have some medical expenses attributed to this injury, it is unlikely that any claim would settle for much. If you are able to provide a few more details, I am sure we can give you a more thorough evaluation of your case.

The above is general information. Laws change frequently, and across jurisdictions. You should get a personalized case evaluation from an attorney licensed in your state. Find a local attorney to give you a free case review here, or call (888) 647-2490.
