I was standing in my backyard one day, when I heard someone yelling for help. I realized that the cry for help was coming from the next door neighbor’s backyard. I saw her laying on the ground and I rushed over to help her. In doing so, I slipped and fell on her slippery back porch that was wet. This is why I ended up needing a Sacramento personal injury attorney later on. As I was lifting my neighbor up, she told me that she had meant to fix that slippery area for quite some time but just hadn’t done it.
I felt a tremendous amount of pain as I was helping her that day. But I found myself worrying that she had had a heart attack, so no matter how much pain I was feeling at the moment, I wanted to help her. I was sort of surprised she would admit that the area that I had done nothing about it. It turned out that she had slipped on the same area, and that’s why she was on the ground as well. She fared rather well after her fall, but I did not.
The doctor bills that came about because of treatment for my back were piling up. I asked my neighbor if she would be willing to help me pay the bills. She told me that she had zero interest in helping me at all. I guess it shouldn’t surprise me, but it did. When my doctor told me that the only thing that would help my back would be to have surgery, I went to the neighbor once again and asked if she would help. I even pointed out that the fall happened on her property, but she didn’t care. So I hired a personal injury attorney to help me win a case against her. The lawyer helped me to receive full compensation from my neighbor so that all of my medical costs were covered in the end.
