Today a man came to clean my living room carpet. I made sure to ask him if he vacumed before he cleaned the carpet. He said yes. He began, and I walked across my living room carpet, stepped on the linoleum and went straight down, severely hyperflexing my knee. My heel right heel went straight into my right buttock and I layed back on it to the point that my back and the back of my head was laying on top of it. I now have severe water on my right knee. He quickly completed the job and left, telling me there would be no charge. I said sure. I was in such agony I just didn't want to talk. I think I was also in a state of shock. I have been layed up all day, with a giant grapefruit knee. I am single and can put no weight bearing on the leg. I tutor, a little, privately going to people's houses, but can't even get down the stairs to get to my car. I think he lied when he said he vacumes first. He just went right into cleaning. His so called vacuming was soapy water which seeped onto the linoleum in my hallway and down I went. I assumed I was walking on a dry carpet. Do i have any recourse?
