Factors That Affect The Value Of Your Slip And Fall Case Several factors determine the value of your slip and fall case, some of these are: The Severity Of Your Injuries You may have sustained multiple different injuries such as spinal injuries, head/brain trauma, or broken bones. The severity of your injuries will impact the value of your slip and fall case. Emergency Care And Medical Expenses You may have to pay for emergency medical care, hospitalization, rehabilitation, or ongoing visits to your doctor. You may also have to take pain medication or other prescriptions. These medical bills may be recovered as part of your settlement. Loss Of Income You may be out of work for an extended period during your recovery, resulting in lost wages. If you are permanently disabled, it could affect your earning capacity or your pension. You may be eligible to recover lost wages as part of your slip and fall case. Physical Pain Or Emotional Suffering You may experience pain and suffering, disfigurement, and/or long-term disability. If your loved one died after a slip and fall injury, you may also be suffering to loss of companionship or loss of income related to their wrongful death. Noneconomic damages may also be considered when determining the value of your case. Factors That Determine A Slip And Fall Settlement Three main factors contribute to the outcome of a slip and fall accident case. These three factors include: The At-Fault Party Ultimately Found Liable For The Accident The most important element of a premises liability case is establishing who is solely responsible for your accident and subsequent injuries. If the premises is covered under liability insurance, the insurance company may become involved and work to resolve your case. How The At-Fault Party Contributed To The Accident In most cases, the property owner neglected to maintain the property in a safe manner, to prevent slips and falls accidents. The at-fault party’s carelessness or recklessness may have also contributed to the accident and your injuries. Conditions such as poor lighting, limited visibility, lack of company policy, or lack of notification all contribute towards the determination of negligence in a slip and fall case. Plaintiff Freedom From Fault Or Contribution While there may have been conditions present that caused your slip and fall accident, you must be cleared of any shared liability. If you contributed to the accident, your share of the liability may affect the value of your case. A Slip And Fall Lawyer May Be Able To Assist You With Your Case A slip and fall attorney may be able to answer your questions and provide legal assistance to help you with your case. An attorney can help you in the following ways: Review Your Case Your first step is to schedule a free case evaluation with an attorney.
