I am a 36 yr old female, I was working as a nurse at the time of the accident. No pre existing conditions were present. Date of accident was 12/07/2005 in Dauphin county, Pa.
I pulled into a gas station, when I stepped out of my car to pump the gas, as soon as my feet hit the ground I slipped on a large patch of ice. I landed half under my car putting my right arm down to try and brace myself, my left arm was still holding onto the door or the car. The reason I slipped was because there was a large 4x6 area of untreated ice that I didn't see when I pulled in because I parked on top of the ice. It was a clear day and had not snowed or rained. I guess a puddle had formed and froze over night. (this happended around 10am). I did notify the manager and fill out a claim form. They did ask me if I needed an amblance, I declined.
My injuries are as follows: After the slip I had injured my right wrist, both shoulders, knee and back. X-rays showed an AC seperation of both shoulders and sprain/strains of knee and back. My wrist had tramua as well.
My knee and back healed quickly, along with my left shoulder. My wrist was in a splint for 6 weeks before healing. I have had to have 3 surgeries on my right shoulder and months of physical therapy. My medical bills are billed at $60,000 to date. I am just finishing treatment from my last (and I hope final) surgery. I am reaching maxium medical improvment. I do not have an attorney at this point. I would like to know if $250,000 is a reasonable amount to expect for these injuries? That is the min. figure I think they should be worth.
