- He ran across the street to her barking in an angry way while the owner was standing on the other side talking on phone. My mother begged the lady hold him, hold him I am scared of dogs. She did not do anything. So dog continued to ran to her. Before he touches my mother she stepped back to escape and fell and after she fell the dog touched her in her chest.
- She called me and I asked her to see her pcp which luckily happened the same day. They told there are some bruises and may be some fragility fractures in her vertebrae as she has osteoporosis already. Recommended her rest, pain meds, and walker.
- This happened in north andover in MA.
I hope I have answered you fully.
Thank you for the information.
So at this point I do not know how many days and how long she will suffer.
I do not know how she will recover. At this point she only has pain and cant walk but I am not sure how long it might take.
Does she have a golden time to do the above or can she wait and see how she recovers?
Thanks. So she has some bruises. But they did not do xray as the thought itis not gonna change the treatment if it is a fragility fracture in vertebra or not. and the amount of pain can not be recorded.
But she will not be able to do shopping, cooking, cleaning by herself. She wont be able to commute to places. and she will be house bound while we are not around her. How these can be documented?
So do you recommend she go further and perform xray in case?
Thank you very much indeed.
So she needs to contact her insurance to find the doctor who will testimony for her or is expert in injuries?what kind of doctor it should be? do you know?
and lasty, do you know how much t might cost for her to hire a lawyer?
Got you .
Apparently they should have the money. She told she is a cardiac nurse!!
Any final advice?
Thank you very much dear ZDN.
Have a great day,
