The damages that you could receive for your slip and fall accident will vary. Factors like the severity of your injuries and the extent of your physical pain could contribute to the value of your case.
When determining the value of your slip and fall case, you should also make sure to consider your future losses, such as ongoing medical care. Fair settlement offers can be difficult to come by on your own, but your attorney could help you pursue a fair resolution.
Medical bills are often a central issue in slip and fall accident cases. You could recoup both immediate and future medical care expenses following a slip and fall injury. This could include the cost of treatment like surgical procedures, physical therapy, or emergency room visits.

Pain and Suffering
Slip and fall injuries are often painful. If you have suffered significant pain due to a fall, you might be entitled to financial compensation. Your pain and suffering is a non-economic damage that does not come with an exact dollar amount. Our firm can establish assign a value to this loss and help you secure fair compensation for your suffering.
While physical injuries form the basis of a personal injury case, there are other types of losses that may warrant compensation. One common example is property damage.
While property damage claims are more common in car accident cases, they could be a part of a slip and fall accident, as well. You could recover financial compensation for any property that gets damaged or destroyed during a fall. Some examples of property damage claims in slip and fall cases include damaged watches, laptops, and phones.

Many people find themselves too hurt to work in the aftermath of a slip and fall accident. Without an income, regular living expenses could devastate a family. This is especially true if you are also facing unexpected medical bills, as well.
A personal injury case could result in compensation for those lost wages. In addition to replacing the wages you missed out on immediately after the accident, you could also seek future lost wages, as well. If you cannot return to work or make the same amount of money after a fall, your settlement should account for this.

Emotional distress – which is sometimes referred to as mental anguish – is compensation for the emotional strain that follows an injury. Much like with pain and suffering damages, emotional distress compensation can be challenging to calculate. Your attorney could help convey to a judge or jury the extent of your mental anguish based on your injuries.
If you are facing debilitating injuries, you might require in-home care during the course of your recovery. This could include help with simple tasks, like cooking or cleaning. The cost of in-home care could be a short-term expense that is no longer necessary after you have recovered.
If you are facing permanent consequences, however, you could need these services for years to come. Recovering the cost of this in-home care could help you avoid further losses.
Diminished Future Earnings
If you are facing long-term physical challenges due to your injury, you might also be entitled to compensation for your diminished future earnings.
Some injuries will impact your ability to perform certain tasks. When these consequences are permanent, it could forever limit the type of work you are able to do. Even if you are ready to return to the workforce, you could be unable to perform the tasks required of the job you held prior to your slip and fall accident.
In these cases, you may have to find a new line of work. If these physical limitations require you to accept a lower-paying position, you might be entitled to compensation for the difference between your pre-injury earning capacity and what you can earn going forward.
