Fell in parking lot of restaurant
On March 4, after leaving a restaurant going to my car I tripped over a curb that was sideway next to my car. I did not report it to the restaurant. Two days later I went to a doctor and was told I badly bruised my kneecap. This happened in SC and I live in IL. After I returned home I went to my orthopedist and he sent me for an MRI. I am waiting for the results, but the MRI tech said there is fluid behind the kneecap and some other abnormalities. Do I have any recourse with the restaurant? I am unemployed presently and am concerned if I have to have surgery my search for work and unemployment compensation will stop. No, I did not claim unemployment when I was out of town.
