More details to this question:
If they take my money my pain and suffering money I'm left with almost nothing. I broke my leg in 3 places. The reason they are settling so low is because beside the fact that the out side steps where made of marble uneven and no hand rail and the fact that it was drizzling I had one glass of wine.
