  • Immediately contact an experienced personal injury attorney, preferably one who accepts and/or specializes in slip and fall accidents or injuries. You want someone who will take your case seriously, will know how to get compensation, and will be able to advise you on any more immediate steps to be taken at the scene and afterward.

What Are The Possible Damages I Can Claim After A Slip And Fall Accident?

Any accident and injury can cause a ripple effect throughout your life which can turn it upside down, financial costs build up, emotional trauma can be ongoing, and lost wages all accumulate. Even what seems at first like an innocuous slip-and-fall injury might end up snowballing into a mountain of debt.

Personal injury compensation can help you recover some part, maybe even all, of those costs and damages, including.

  • Medical bills and expenses. These can sometimes be cripplingly high, with ambulance costs, treatment costs, surgery bills, hospital stays, medicine, and prescription drug costs, all of which can amputate from a slip and fall injury. All of which your personal injury attorney will help you reclaim. This can include one-time and ongoing medical treatments.
  • Lost wages. When you are unable to work due to an injury suffered in a slip and fall accident, whether for a brief or extended period of time, you are losing out on the money you could be earning. This is a clear form of damage from the injury and you might very well be able to recover some or all of these lost wages with a successful personal injury lawsuit. This can include current, past, or even future lost wages.
  • Inability to perform household or childcare duties. If your injury results in you being unable to perform duties that others formerly counted on you to provide, these too can be considered real financial economic losses, and included in compensation.
  • Non-economic damages. While all the above damages were financial, you are also able to claim compensation for non-economic losses, such as emotional trauma, pain and suffering, and so forth. These are very real damages but are not always easy to predict, understand or quantify.

An experienced slip and fall injury attorney will be able to help you understand what damages you are eligible for, which is often the first step towards claiming them through a personal injury process.
