What Kind of Damages Can I Recover from a Slip and Fall Accident?

Scott Monge

With how legally complicated slip and fall cases (also known as premises liability) can be, some victims may often wonder if everything they're doing is worth the hassle. They've already been through so much, and they may feel that fighting a legal battle will just be tiring and upsetting.

However, as the medical bills begin to pile up and you're out of work much longer than anticipated, you need to realize that pursuing this matter in court will help you secure an important financial award. The money you win in your slip and fall case can cover many different expenses that you may have incurred as a result of your accident.

Damages you could recover include:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Permanent disability making you no longer able to work
  • Pain and suffering
  • Compensation for scars or disfigurement
  • Required rehabilitation, physical therapy and occupational therapy that you may require now and in the future
  • Cost for assistive equipment, such as wheelchairs and walkers
  • Travel expenses for medical appointments

It is also possible, in certain circumstances, that you could recover punitive damages or loss of consortium (spousal loss of companionship).

You must consider not just what you've had to pay for in the past, but also what you're presently faced with and expenses you may have in the future. If your injury is serious enough, you need to account for the fact that you may never work again and could require physical therapy for the rest of your life. You should not have to pay for that, which is why filing a premises liability claim could be so important for your future.
