My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.
Whether you will have a case in a situation such as this comes down to proving the link between the fall and the cyst bursting on her kidney. You will need expert testimony for this and that can be quite expensive. This is called causation. Getting an experienced personal injury attorney is thus very important in a case such as this. This attorney will normally take the case on a contingency basis. This means that the attorney will pay all costs associated with the case but they will take an agreed upon percentage if you receive a judgment or settlement (normally around 40%). Proving causation for this case will thus be proven by a physician that will testify that the fall caused the damage to your mother. The case will probably biol down to this issue and your attorney will have contacts and pick an expert physician to help you with the case if the attorney feels that you have enough to prevail.
