    K. Jackson

    I was shopping with my daughter (a minor at 14 yrs old) at the Shaws in Massachusetts when she went to get some plain yogurt for me. On her way back she slipped and landed hard on some sprite that had not been cleaned up nor did it have a caution sign. She came to me and we filled out and accident report and showed workers a large trail of clear liquid that should have been taken care of. We went to doctors when we returned from vacationing two days later and she has a "very bad muscle spasm" which is causing her much distress. Do we have a good case? How much could we get out of suing? What should the settlement be if we settle?

    Also, muscle spasms can be a sign of tearing, spraining, or straining of the back muscles which may need more care

    You appear to have a good case for getting her hospital bill reimbursed. There appear to be no long term issues.

    Did your doctor speak to these issues? What kind of medical condition did this cause, anything long term? I don't really think you've got any kind of claim to obtain any kind of large cash settlement if that's what you're asking, because there was no long term pain and suffeig, disfigurement, or other major conditions.
