Injured in a Fall --- What Your Claim May Be Worth

Injured in a Fall --- What Your Claim May Be Worth

 

Did you suffer a slip and fall injury in a privately owned establishment? You may be entitled to compensation if the establishment was at fault. Here are some things that you may be entitled to compensation for.

Medical Expenses

Usually, you'll be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses. This can be the case even if you were covered by insurance. This amount may be multiplied depending on your pain, as in the following section.

Pain and Suffering

You can sometimes be entitled to compensation for your suffering. This will vary. For example, if you now suffer a serious limp, you'll be entitled to more compensation than if you simply sprained an ankle.

Lost Wages

If you were out of commission and couldn't work, then you may be entitled to compensation for those lost earnings. If you suffered serious damage that will prevent you from working in the future, your compensation will often be much greater.

Other Expenses

Other expenses may also be included in the compensation amount. One example would be the taxi fare you paid for the doctor's visit. If property damage is somehow involved, you may be compensated for that too.

There's No Way to Tell

There's no real way of knowing how much your claim is worth in advance. It's complex, and many factors have to be taken into account. Your best bet is to immediately contact an expert attorney who can help you out with your claim and help you get all the compensation you deserve. Contact us for more information.
