Compensation for Your Slip and Fall Accident

After a slip and fall accident, our attorneys may recommend filing a lawsuit for a type of action called “premises liability.” This is a type of legal claim that involves suing a property owner or manager for a defective condition on the premises.   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 demonstrate a pattern of neglected or hazardous conditions on the property that posed a threat to visitors.  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 
  • Disfigurement 
  • Disability 
  • Reduced or lost earning capacity 
  • Reduced quality of life 

No matter the severity of your injury, 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 slip and fall lawyers will also seek 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, several factors 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, provide every detail of the incident, your injuries, and your financial, emotional, and physical condition before, during, and after the event. This will allow your attorney to come up with a reasonable compensation amount to start negotiations.
