Default Prayers for mother in law hurt @ low’s

My mother in law was with me at Lowe’s and tripped on some broken tile @ the bathroom entrance
And got a concussion and other body damage
Trying to figure out what to do about her trip to the hospital
And deal with low’s
Hopefully they will handle her ambulance and hospital bill? And she doesn’t get worse

Ouch! Glad it wasn't worse. Good luck with Lowe's hopefully their insurance will at least cover the ride and Dr bills.

So..... You take your MIL to Lowe's and trip her. Then blame the broken tile.

In all seriousness I hope she recovers quickly.

Document everything and keep the pics or take more. Might want to go back and take a pick of the tile where she tripped. Anyone else see it, might want to get their contact info.

Hope the MIL recovers with no problems.

Go back and take more photos of tile from several angles. Try to get a measurement of the thickness. The good noise is the knot is outward. Best of luck to her

I worked at Lowes back in the early 2000's. Even then their security camera system could see just about every spot in the store. They should have video of the incident. How you get it...me no know.

Jot down incident time, date etc. make it easier to get footage. No marking around the missing tile? Take photos of any dirt etc in it if there to show it’s been a problem. Bills are cheap part of what they may pay

Prayers for your MIL. A friend of mine got her foot caught in the door at Lowe’s about a year ago, the door opened then closed suddenly and severely cut the top of her foot and 2 toes. She had surgery on her foot, Lowe’s didn’t want to take care of any of her medical bills until she threatened to get an attorney, then they paid everything. Hope it all goes well for y’all .

OP, I truly hope your MIL is ok, but I think it is total BS to try to get money or expect money from Lowe’s. She is old, she tripped and got hurt, sh$@ happens. Why should you expect them to be responsible. If she trips at home and falls who are you going to try to squeeze money out of......I just don’t get that way of thinking

That’s tough. My 79 yr old grandmother just passed from falling and hitting her head in CVS. Was on blood thinners and developed a brain bleed that wouldn’t stop. Prayers for your MIL.

Texan16, we had the same mentality. She had fallen multiple times in the last couple months and we tried to convince her to use a walker. We knew the fault laid squarely on her age and mobility.

So much stupidity on this thread that it is sickening.
Being on the opposite side of this thread, be VERY careful what you say or post.

OP. If they do not cover her bill's at the ER, post why. She should also be covered for any futured problems. For those are apposed, at 70's, 80,s and above years old, things happen. If there are things laying on the floor, and someone trips, the company is liable.

Hope she is okay. In this sue happy world, I’m not surprised by the responses. things happen, but the automatic sue response is why our world is the way it is. Same people for suing when a police officer shoots their loved one even though they violated someone are same who say sue Lowes in my opinion. Either you are part of the solution or part of the problem

OP, sorry your MIL had this happen and pray for a quick and pain free recovery. Looks like a pretty good bump she has there.


No doubt a lawyer can make a case here, but it appears the transition is marked well. I never want anyone to come to my house again, there’s a crack in the driveway and 1 section of concrete on my rear patio rose about 1/4” above the other. Some of y’all might want to check the sidewalk in front of your house in the morning. Sure would hate for a neighborhood walker to take a trip on your property.

Praying that she feels better out of respect for your MIL....BUT

It is a complete joke to think that “Low’s” owes y’all anything. She needs to take responsibility for her “trip”.

That tile chip did not trip her up...plus there is a big piece of caution tape in front of it.

Sad to see all of the people jumping in with the mob...

I've got a friend that owns shopping centers, he got sued by a lady who slipped on an acorn, there are no oak trees on the property.

He also got sued because some punk kid was doing donuts in the parking lot at 3 am and hit a light pole

He also got sued because some lady went into a store and her kid jumped in the driver seat and ran the car into the building. The car hit the front counter and the worker behind the counter sued everyone.

The real problem is insurance will pay something on alot of these claims instead of fighting it, they throw out some stupid amount hoping for a fraction of the amount and normally get it because of the insurance companies.

Most importantly, take care and get her looked at. Suppose they have a follow-up for her after emergency room visit?

Surely Lowes is sweatin this. They may be calling, you be careful in all communications without an attorneys advice or presence
