Every personal injury case is unique, so we cannot throw out a dollar amount that will reflect the monetary value of your claim. The amount of compensation you can pursue will depend on the facts of your situation. We will have to talk to you and investigate your circumstances before we estimate your likely range of money damages.
Here are some examples of the kinds of recovery we have won for our clients:
An Award Could Cover Your Accident-Related Medical Bills

Lost Income Due to Being Out of Work Could Be Part of Your Award
If you missed paychecks because of the slip and fall accident, medical treatments, and recuperation time, you have experienced a financial loss. Whether your facts involve lost wages, salary, self-employment, or another form of regular income, you could qualify for this kind of compensation.
We Can Fight for Damages for Diminished Future Earning Capacity
After a significant injury, a person might not be able to perform all their previous work tasks or might experience a loss of strength and stamina. Sometimes people need to reduce their working hours or take a lower-paying job because of their harm from a slip and fall accident. This decrease in future earning ability can be compensable.
Our Team Will Assign a Value to Your Intangible Slip and Fall Losses
Medical bills and lost wages are relatively easy to measure in dollars because they come with a paper trail like doctor bills and employer records. Some types of losses are more challenging to quantify in dollars. Nonetheless, the following are valid damages:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Pain and suffering

Who Could Be Liable for My Injuries From a Slip and Fall Accident?
Legal liability for a slip and fall accident usually goes to the owner of the property. Other parties could be at fault as well. Whoever was responsible for the negligence that caused the accident and injury can be held accountable for your losses.
Let’s say that you slipped and fell because there was a spill on a restaurant floor that you could not readily see and avoid. Depending on the facts, the owner or the restaurant could be liable.
Sometimes multiple parties are negligent. For example, if another guest at the restaurant intentionally poured out his beverage. You might be able to sue this party as well. Our lawyers serving Riverview will pursue all liable parties in your slip and fall case.
