No matter how serious or (seemingly) minor, a slip and fall accident can cause serious injuries.

In addition to suffering from serious injuries like broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and soft tissue sprains, you are likely accruing astronomical medical bills.

Compensation for Your Slip and Fall Accident
After a slip and fall accident, our Laguna Beach slip and fall attorneys may recommend filing a lawsuit for a type of action called “premises liability.” To prepare your premises liability case, we will gather evidence in the form of business records, including whether – and how often – the site where you fell has been inspected, cleaned, or repaired. We will also collect records regarding whether similar incidents have occurred on the premises. This will allow us to prove to an insurance adjuster – or, if necessary, a judge or jury – that there was a pattern of neglected or even hazardous conditions on the property. If your lawyer can demonstrate this pattern of neglect, you may be able to recoup damages for your injuries and other losses. Through the insurance claims process, our lawyers will pursue compensation for your:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Reduced or lost earning capacity
- Reduced quality of life
No matter the severity of your injury, keep in mind that the substantial payouts from trial verdicts may only be enough to cover a lifetime of medical care. Because of this, your lawyer can – and will – fight to recover more than just the basics. Our Laguna Beach slip and fall lawyers will also fight to recover non-economic damages such as compensation for your pain and suffering.
How Much is My Claim Worth?
Unfortunately, there is no way to estimate a settlement amount before you have gathered all of the evidence needed to prove your case, and no lawyer will put a number on your claim before settlement negotiations begin. However, there are several factors that can affect your settlement – or verdict – amount:
- The cost of your medical treatment
- Whether you were employed at the time of your slip and fall accident
- How much work you missed – if any
- Whether the property owner acted with reckless disregard for your safety and wellbeing
- The severity of your injuries
When you meet with your lawyer, make sure you provide every detail of the incident, your injuries, and your financial, emotional, and physical condition before, during, and after the event.
