In your situation, had there not been a defect in the parking lot you would be okay. When this sort of injury occurs, due to a hazardous public setting, you may seek compensation for your troubles. Your health should come first. There is no reason why you should defer from receiving the proper treatment you need.

Seeing the totality of how a crack in the parking lot has altered your life is why there are rights to fight for compensation in your situation.
No one should have to suffer due to a property owner’s neglect. It is important to know you are not hopeless in this situation. You may have the option to fight for compensation.
