After all these years of saying pizza is better than X .... does this change your mind? I mean, no one breaks their wrist cleaning up vomit at 3am.

.

.

BTW, was it the left or right wrist?

You know what happens if you break your left wrist? You'll be all right for a while.
LEFT.

NOW

It’s an app where you can find the cheapest prices in your area with a coupon you can show from your phone. You’re basically paying the cash price with a discount.

For example, let’s say you have ADHD and are prescribed adderall. Cash price even for generic is roughly $80-120 in my area. Since my deductible is not met, I would have to pay this price or not use insurance and use a coupon instead.

This isn't how to find the cheapest medicine. Go to a community hospital (yea that one that treats all patients regardless of insurance)

Talk to poor and very low middle class patients and find out where they get their medicine.

The quoted price online and the price charged to the needy isn't the same if you know where to go.

Well, if OP or anyone has the time for that, sure.

I just figured I'd share the method I've been using to save.

Did you wile a police report ?
If not you can not sue . There is zero proof you slipped and fell there.
Yes the home owners insurance would of covered your medical bills.
No you would not get rich. Yes the medical bills would be covered .
No the insurance will not pay for your time off. Your a nobody no offence intended. With out a good lawyer you will not get that paid time off work.
How the F you know all these information from?I didn't know stupid Uber drivers know laws about slip and fall.Why don't you present him in the court of you know so much about it?

Ow yes even uber drivers knows about slip and falls. I am not just a uber driver . I Am retired . I used to day track private stock for a living along with a wholesale account of grow supplies on ebay. If that is any concern .
Taking into account my wife slipped and fell on black ice at a hardware store and broke her arm.
Call 1800 lawyer did nothing . Me going to the city where it happened with a police and medical report in my hand with power of attorney .
I filed a judgement vs the hardware store for dangerous neglect of the sidewalks .
I won the case 5k it covered most of the medical bills. My stated max is 5000 in small.
Yes i have a idea what i am doing and no there are zero lawyers allowed in small claims so you know .
And i stick being my opinion the person that fell broke his wrist will not get a penny. There is zero proof.
Anybody can say they fell anywhere. Walmart The homedepot A casino City hall sue for millions .

If it is a simple break, should heal with no problems. I'll take a clean bone break over soft tissue injuries any day.

Soft tissue injuries (tendons & ligaments) can be much worse, especially long-term. You should follow up with a good orthopedists. And if recommended , do physical therapy.

Re lawsuit....I'm not into suing either. But this is one I would not hesitate with. Home owners insurance will take care of it as others have said.

Also, this homeowner is not going to take care of the problem until she gets served some court documents from your lawyer. That section of walkway didn't settle like that just this week.

So do someone else a favor and also get some $$$ for yourself. Heck, donate 10% to a local charity if it makes you feel better.

Who puts a " Step" in a smooth level sidewalk anyway !?!?
Step was Right at the edge of reach of her outside Lights !
Right at the edge of shadow !
Had it been in the light, or in the dark . . . i would have seen it !

Laying in Ambush at the Edge !
I finished work & drove 35 miles home.

The more i used the hand, the more it hurt & seized up !

Have it splinted up from hospital, which immobilizes it and relieves pain.

Have to see an orthopedic Dr.
I now have hospital bill inclu d ing x rays & will soon have orthopedic bill.

I have Insurance . . .$5,000.00 Deductible. View attachment 508270
Make sure you get the wrist seen by a doctor and x-rayed. When I was younger I had a minor motorcycle accident and hurt my wrist. I just assumed it was a sprain but it didn't get better. After a couple of months I went to the doctor, who x-rayed it and told me that it was broken. He put a cast on it but said that because I had waited so long it may not set properly. He was right - it didn't set properly and I had a bad wrist for the next 15 years until.... I had a major motorcycle accident and totally smashed the same wrist. It was so messed up that I had to have surgery. They rebuilt it with a metal plate that they screwed to the bones. Ironically, it took smashing up the wrist completely to fix the break of the first accident.

Anyway, the point is, get your wrist checked out.

If you go with this company you’ll have to pay higher insurance cost which will most likely eat up your profit

Homeowner said she tripped on it herself before.
Im over 200 pounds & was doing 10mph up the sidewalk.
I think my flying weight landing on it is what fractured it. After using hand to slow my fall and minimize injuries.

I must say... I grew up with my “sport of choice” having been Motocross racing. Mastering the art of what was often called “tuck-and-roll” proved difficult. As of last count, I believe my current bone fracture count is 16. This indeed includes the left Radius/Ulna (which, from surgery produced the most beautiful of my scars; sheer precision via the surgeon at the helm).
Though it is a natural reflex to put ones arms out to brace for a fall, it is almost always better to “just fall”— flat on ones frontside (or whatever side is due to hit), without outstretched limbs.
Curbs and dilapidated sidewalks are indeed a beeeatch. A “sand-curb” once rendered my right Tibia and Fibula broken; snapped like a twig, protruding and all... it sounded exactly as one would expect— though louder. Truly audible to those some 50 yards away. That scar, too is nice; though far more crude. The torn rotator cuff, however, which was met by a scalpel-happy, overpriced surgeon— not nearly so beautiful, and with not very impressive a story behind it. 😞
Get well. Bones heal!
Ask me how I know! 🥳

Suing Customers is NOT good for business.
Seemed like a nice lady.
Even got $2.00. Tip . . .

You are not suing the customer.

You are filing a claim against her homeowners insurance policy. She won’t pay a nickel out of her pocket.

Thats why insurance is there for these incidents so otherwise the courts would be clogged for years with personal lawsuits.

She shouldn’t be the least bit upset you seeking compensation for medical costs for and injury that happened on her property.

You might be put of work for a while. Insurance will cover your income loss also.

1. Assuming she has such a policy. 1 in 20 homes do not.
2. Until the premiums go up.

If you have a mortgage you are required to have insurance.

If she doesn’t then tohunt4me would have to sue her personally for injury medical and lost wages.

Only a real dope with a paid off asset like a house wouldn’t have insurance.

Fire, theft, natural disaster...why take the chance and cheap out on insurance on your most valuable asset.
