Winn-Dixie Stores Complaint - Tore Rotator Cuff Out Of Shoulder, After Falling In Water at Winn-Dixie!
ALABAMA -- I am a 58 year old white female who lives in Alabama, on Sept.12-04, I slipped and fell in water at the meat counter, tearing my rotator cuff out of my shoulder, they told me they would pay all my bills, they lied! They mopped up all the water, and put up 3 wet signs after I had fallen. I have been completely disabled since Sep 12, and they don't care, I had to have surgery on No.19th for the torn rotator cuff, about the size of a silver dollar. I am still on pain medication today for it, and therapy, I had to be hospitalized after surgery for infection had set up in it. They are self insured, and they did approve of a few of my bills at first, then when they found out I had to have surgery, that stopped. They had to cut about a 4-inch incision on my shoulder, and I nearly died from the pain of having the bone cut. , and still suffering! After refusing to pay my bills, I attained a lawyer who is now helping me. The bills have run around $25,000-$30,000, and we had to file under our insurance, so I could have surgery.
Thank God I had some insurance! I had been shopping there for 5 years before this happened, and enjoyed it. But, I would not recommend Winn-Dixie to anyone anymore. The pain and suffering I have gone through was the worst pain I had ever incurred in my life! Most of all, everyone kept telling me at Winn-Dixie that they would pay all my bills, well they have not paid anything!!! We are paying on the accounts, $50.00 -$100 a month until a settlement is reached, if it ever is! It is certainly not a nice company, with lots of lying going on.
I just hope if anyone else falls because of their carelessness that they have some type of insurance, because no thanks to Winn-Dixie, I Had to wait, until from Sept12-04-Nov.19-04 until I could have surgery, I just lay in the bed and had to knock myself out with pain medication. Anyway, I will no longer shop there, because of their bad tactics.
