Fell at a restaurant
10 days ago I fell and hurt my knee, back and neck in a restaurant. I fell on a wet floor (NOT marked).I have seen a doc a total of 5 times for this injury. Today I found out that my MRI showed that I have arthritis in my knee, which is NOT caused by my injury. My doc said that because I fell and injured myself this has extremely ''aggravated'' my arthritis. He said that the symptoms of arthritis would not have began for me for another 10 years had I not fallen. (I am only 30). My question is this: can I still go after the restaurant for compensation for my medical bills even though I had a preexisting condition? (My neck an back are being treated by a chiropractor and are not preexisting). Thanks for any and all advice
