I hesitate to give free advice. Socrates gave free advice and they poisoned him.

I'm not just gonna squat before I fall, I'm gonna lay down!

I broke mine in half. Now it has two pins in it and is circled with titanium wire. What's taking the recovery time is getting the ligaments to stretch again. After surgery I could bend it 30 degrees. Now I'm up to 105. They say about 135 is average.
I just want to descend stairs normally again. Therapist says I will eventually and not to be in too much of a hurry.

A "claim"? You mean 'Workers' Comp.' ? I doubt that most of us are even covered anymore.
In defense of our socialized medicine in Canada, doing crazy stunts doesn't disqualify one from having their medical expenses totally covered!
The hospital will however sell you a pair of crutches on your way out the door. Here, they don't give or loan you a pair as they know they'll never see them again...

I have a Kaiser plan, they'd treat me for 5 bucks out of pocket, but that's theoretical congecture since the ladder's now history.

I decided to get a little advice about ladder safety from these guys...

The only smart one was the guy in the last picture - he got off the unsafe ladder. I think the ground broke his fall
