What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? NM
I was at wal-mart with my family shopping (During this time WM was under a major remodel) . we were walking down main aisle when I slipped and fell on a slippery substance, when I got up my wrist hurt.. i immediately filed a claim with the manager on duty and went to the er.... I ended up having orthoscopic surgery on my wrist....after about three months i was still having the same pain..i ended up going back to the surgeon having another mri which indicated more damage in my wrist...ended up having a more intensive surgery where I had to be in a cast for 6 weeks. I was released finally a year and four months after the initial injury. The claim adjustor from Wal mart offered to pay a total lein amount of 20,000 and 15,000 for pain, suffering, time lost from work and any expenses I have occured. I dont believe this is a fair amount. What should be my next step?
