I went to Fred Meyer on Saturday July 24, 2010. I picked up my prescription and then walked over to the Garden Department to see if they had any vegetables. I was walking along the left side of the store in the garden department, (the flooring was cement), looking at plants. I wanted to walk further because I saw no vegetables on that side. There was a forklift parked that I had to maneuver around. It appeared that the forks were down. I lifted my foot a bit and tried to step around it but the forks were up about 1 1/2 to 2 inches but that could not be seen from above. My shoe caught on the fork and I went flying and landed on the cement. It has been three weeks and my neck and back are a mess. Fred Meyer has a company that speaks for them. I could not get them to return my call. I finally got a hold of them and they said I am mostly at fault because I knew a forklift was there. I spoke to an attorney and they said these kinds of claims are hard to win. I would most likely lose which was surprising since it is illegal to leave the forks up on a lift. I would like my medical bills paid. They said they would give me 400 dollars which does not cover what I have had done so far, x rays, medicine, Drs appts. Dr wants me to have physical therapy but I do not have the money and this will not pay for it. What should I do? Thanks in advance to all that answer. I have fibro and have a plate in my neck that was not damaged but I am still in much pain from this.
