How can I make sure I’m getting adequate compensation for my slip and fall knee injury?

 

A:

There are several things you should know about knee injury claims following a Sarasota slip and fall accident.

  1. First, the insurance company will often downplay the seriousness of your injury so it can get away with paying your less. However, you need to realize that knee injuries are serious. For example, a torn ACL can require surgery, physical therapy, and even additional surgeries in the future. For an injury you weren’t planning to have, it can greatly impact your life for six months or more.
  2. Second, knee injuries affect every part of your life, including walking, driving, working, and participating in the activities you enjoy. An injury like this can cause you to miss out on taking the vacation you planned or participating in a marathon or other activity you were planning to do.
  3. Lastly, knee injuries can cause you to miss out on income or get passed over for a job. Without your income, you may not have the money to pay your mortgage or rent, other bills, or even put food on the table without going into debt.

To make sure you get the compensation that you truly deserve following a Sarasota slip and fall accident, you should speak with a skilled Sarasota premises liability lawyer about your injury claim. An attorney can help you get the compensation you are entitled to. Don’t let the insurance company get away with paying you less than what you deserve.
