Can I still file an incident a year later?

1 Answers. Asked on May 15th, 2017 on Personal Injury - California
More details to this question:
I was hit by a car in march last year which led to knee surgery. Later that day I was hit, I went to IHOP with my grandmother. In the restroom, on crutches, I went into the handicapped stall and my crutch slipped and I not only stepped on my bad leg, but I hit the side of my neck as I had no way of keeping myself up. There weren't any wet signs, I don't know what i slipped on. I was dealing with one Lawsuit on the woman who hit me I didn't focus on the incident but I have a pain in my neck that's been there since and I thought it'd go away but now my neck is popping and it's scaring me and I'm pissed about it.

We need more facts as to the original car acccident such as the time and place of the accident; if there is a police report; if the other driver has insurance and/or if you have Uninsured Motorist insurance; and what other injuries you had besides the knee surgery.

In addition, we need further details on your second accident at IHOP including whether a report was taken and if you went to the doctor for your neck injury.    

Please email your responses to the above questions.  

Thank you.
