  1. I don't see how people get by with it. If you really fall on a hard floor you'll have at least a bruise, red mark or something. Some people who accidentally fall on tile floors end up with serious injuries like hip fractures and skull fractures. If somebody is claiming they fell and demanding money but they don't have any injuries at all documented on medical records, why do these companies pay them?

  2. I was shopping at this store that even  had signs everywhere stating they were going out of business, I had my hands full of just a few items for dinner when I went to leave the aisle I was in to turn to the next, well they were running a floor machine a couple aisles away and I didn't notice the water on the floor, no wet floor signs.. nothing.. I hit that water patch and went both feet in the air and hit my head on the floor..  the manager never even asked if I was ok, he was RIGHT THERE.. and there were a bunch of witnesses, so I said that I was gonna talk to an lawyer to see what I can do, he then said.. go for it, we are out of business anyway.. it will be a waste of your time and money..

  3. All that fraud just so one does not have to get a job like the rest of us. Sad, just as bad as pot smokers getting welfare checks claiming fake disabilities in Colorado. We hard working clean and sober folks get the bill.

  4. If I'd legitimately slipped over in a store the only thing I'd hurt is my pride and I'd want to get the hell out of there before I died of embarrassment. If I'd faked slipping over in a store the only thing I'd hurt is my pride and I'd want to get the hell out of there before I died of embarrassment.
