Determining the Value of a Slip and Fall Accident
A slip and fall accident case value is determined by the following:
Pain and Suffering: Turning an individual’s pain and suffering into a settlement amount is one of the least predictable components of a slip and fall case. There are no set rules to determine a person’s pain and suffering. Depending on the severity of your injuries, your attorney and/or insurance adjusters evaluating your claim will determine an appropriate amount usually based on your medical needs.
Lost Wages: If the severity of your injuries from a slip and fall accident caused you to be unable to work, lost wages are also calculated into your claim. You will be required to verify the amount of time you missed as well as your how much you earning are with a pay stub or tax return. Typically, your employer will also have to verify your earnings and time missed as well.
Medical Bills: Past and future medical bills related to your slip and fall injuries will be a major factor in determining the value of your case. Usually, but not always, a slip and fall settlement amount will cover at least your medical bills.
