Helps? I'm sure Attorney Hartman does if it's good press and makes money. But what about cases that don't make law office rich but is right thing to do. I have never sued anyony in my life but was advised to find an attorney and did just that.
I called Dallas Hartman when I slipped & fell outside the Altoona Pizza Hut in March. It was lunchtime an I was walking on sidewalk where a large patch of ice was covered with dusting of snow. Ice from faulty gutters letting water drip on sidewalk Legs went out behind me landed on both knees, chest, hands & face. Many witnesses, bystanders came to the aid of my husband & I. No manager or employee inside came to help but Pizza Hut semi truck delivery person called 911. It was so cold and wet laying down on my face I had hypothermia by time ambulance arrived. I was back boarded and transported to local hospital. Customers, strangers that saw what happened told my husband to take pictures and get an attorney. He did. They even passed on names of what they saw. Bless the women who stayed on the ground using her beautiful scarf to protect my face from freezing to ground. I have no name except an angel doing a random act of kindness. I still have her scarf.
I was told by law office it's not worth enough so I guess if your disabled already unless you're paralyzed or dead it's not worth time & effort. Im just now back on my feet. Faulty gutters, not salting sidewalk so ice can form making it hazardous to enter from handicap ramp is not a crime. At very least put a yellow hazard sign on spot..I guess it's acceptable to allow unsafe entrance with no accountability. It's also OK for attorney to say no can't help. Not worth time & effort.
But what happens when it happens to someone else even more crippled causing shattered knees, broken hip, or paralyzing them?
Was has happened that we ignore or turn away. I personally have issues walking away with knowledge problem never fixed an Pizza Hut gets away with taking no responsibility for what happened to me.
Should I walk or fight for rights to have safe entrance?
