Slip and Fall Accident Compensation
Slip and fall accidents can cause head injuries, fractures, broken hips, and spine and back injuries. If your accident was not your fault, you may deserve help with your medical bills and other expenses. You may also deserve compensation for your pain and suffering.
You could seek the following forms of compensation:
These are your out-of-pocket losses, including medical care, lost wages, loss of earning capacity (if you cannot return to work), and the value of any personal property damaged during your accident.
Compensation for your medical bills includes your past and future care needs, such as:
- Follow-up treatment
- Medical devices
- And more
These are awards for your physical pain, mental anguish, and emotional suffering. They include compensation for complications resulting from accidents, including depression, chronic pain, problems sleeping, reduced physical or cognitive functioning, and loss of enjoyment of life.
Because these damages do not rely on quantifiable figures, they can be harder to calculate. Our lawyers can help you seek a fair settlement amount.
How Much Could I Seek in a Claim or Lawsuit?
According to the Florida Department of Health (DOH), the median hospitalization cost for non-fatal fall injuries in Florida is around $46,000. The exact value of your case will depend on the nature and severity of your injuries, the cost of your medical care, your current wages and lost wages, the extent of your non-economic damages, and other factors.
While there is no predetermined amount a slip and fall victim can seek, we can help you understand what damages you qualify to pursue.
