What to do if my wife was injured on a state owned and operated historical site?

She received a broken nose, 15 stitches in her forehead, a concussion, an aggravation of a neck injury when she fell due to a raised pavement joint. What can she expect to recover in light of sovereign immunity?

Sovereign immunity may not apply in this situation. Consult with a personal injury attorney, who would probably contact the county or city attorney's office to discuss her medical payments and costs and pain and suffering. Gather all your bills and have her keep a journal of her pain.
