Would like some advice regarding a fall from an airport shuttle bus while getting off outside the Travelodge on E. Harrison St. Required a visit to the ER – broken knee-cap and torn ligaments. Accident 18th July Chicago. Referred by primary care physician to orthopedic surgeon 21st July (Kentucky). Surgery required to remove cartilage 8th Aug but have not reconstructed ligaments due to increased risks associated with surgery. Still unable to walk without crutches.
I am a 30-yr-old British citizen living and working in Kentucky on a J-1 visa and am therefore very naive about US laws/legal rights etc. Surgery occurred back here in Louisville, KY. Do not know where I stand legally and friends recommended I seek legal advice.
Airport shuttle bus insurance co. have called to take a recorded statement but I don’t wish to do this without legal advice. Thanks for your time.
