For a hockey fan like “Parker” (not a real person), winning expensive tickets to see her hometown team in action was a dream come true. She and her boyfriend attended the game on a Friday night, raucously cheering her team on to victory in overtime.
A light rain had been falling when they arrived in the early evening and by the time night fell, the pavement was slick in spots – including one patch near the entrance to the parking garage. In the darkness, Parker couldn’t distinguish it from the dry section of the sidewalk. She slipped, wrenching her ankle and then landing hard on her backside.
Parker immediately knew it was bad. Her boyfriend rushed her to the hospital where she was diagnosed with a bruised tailbone and a dislocated ankle. Her rehabilitation would be slow, painful, and, worst of all for the cash-strapped young couple, expensive.
On the advice of her attorney, Parker filed a lawsuit against the arena, which insisted that maintenance of the area where she had slipped was the responsibility of the company that oversaw the parking garage. And the parking garage said it was the duty of the arena to make sure that part of the sidewalk was safe.
The circular blame game served to delay Parker’s attempt to collect compensation for her injuries. With her medical costs mounting, Parker’s lawyer suggested she contact USClaims to help secure pre-settlement funding to help pay her bills while her attorney fought on her behalf in court.
