The law requires property owners to provide a safe and properly maintained premise. Many slip and fall injuries occur because of dangerous conditions caused by the property owner’s negligence. Slip and fall injuries can cause serious consequences that could impact you far into the future. The property owner should be held accountable for not keeping their property safe.

We can be by your side throughout the entirety of your case. Our attorneys will be the strong arm you can lean on after sustaining an injury.
We Can Help You Recover Compensation for Your Slip and Fall Accident Injuries
Once our firm starts working on your case, we will determine what damages you could potentially recover. Recoverable damages are an amount of money the court requires someone to pay if it is proven they are at fault for causing someone else’s injuries. In a slip and fall accident case, you could recover both economic and non-economic damages.
Economic Damages You Could Recover
Economic damages are justified, monetary losses you may have incurred because of your injuries. The value of the loss is easier to calculate because there is documentation to support each loss. Economic damages you could recover in a slip and fall case include:
- Medical costs: Expenses for medical care could most likely be the most significant economic damage award. If your injuries required emergency room care, hospitalizations, surgeries, medications, diagnostic testing, and doctor’s appointments, your out-of-pocket costs could be high. Future medical costs could also be included in medical expenses. Your injuries could require ongoing medical care long after your claim is settled. Our attorneys can calculate the projected value of future medical costs.
- Lost income: You may be out of work for a few days or weeks while you recover from the accident. The income you lost during that time could be recovered.
- Future lost earnings: If your injuries are severe enough, you may be out of work for years or unable to return to work at all. Our attorneys can calculate your future projected earnings so you can recover compensation for those losses.
- Rehabilitative treatment: Your injuries may require you to go through rehabilitative treatments, such as occupational therapy or physical therapy. These treatments could last far into the future and have out-of-pocket costs associated with them.
Non-Economic Damages You Could Recover
Non-economic damages are subjective, non-monetary losses. They can be more difficult to calculate because they are not associated with a monetary loss.
Non-economic damages account for physical and emotional suffering. Non-economic damages you can seek in a slip and fall accident case include:
- Emotional distress: If you suffer from any negative psychological effects, such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, or sleep issues, your suffering could warrant compensation.
- Pain and suffering: If you suffer from pain, anguish, discomfort, or inconvenience because of your injuries, you can seek compensation for these damages.
- Loss of enjoyment: If you can no longer enjoy hobbies, sports, or other activities you once enjoyed because of your injuries, you could be entitled to recover loss of enjoyment damages.
Our attorneys can develop a compelling argument to explain why you are entitled to non-economic damages. We can calculate your non-economic damages to determine the value of compensation we will seek in your case.
