What to do if my boyfriend owns a vending machine business and was injured while installing machines at a store?

He tripped on carpet that was rolled back and fell. He thought his arm was bruised but the next day, he was in a lot of pain so he went to the hospital. They took X-rays and concluded it was fractured or broken. He doesn’t have health Insurance unfortunately. Shouldn’t the store be held liable for negligence since he fell in the store? What are his options?

Based upon what you have written, you boyfriend should consult with a personal injury attorney in his locality to determine whether he has the basis for a lawsuit factually and legally. One in your locality can be found on attorneypages.com.
