The amount of compensation you may receive from the insurance company depends on many different factors. If it can be proven that the property owner or property possessor was negligent in maintaining its premises, which led to your slip and fall, then you may have a case against the responsible party. However, the worth of each Sarasota slip and fall injury is different. It takes into account many different factors, such as:
- The severity of the injuries sustained – victims who have suffered a deformity or disability as a result of the slip and fall will have higher case values than those who suffered broken bones that healed nicely.
- The extent of the medical treatment – victims who need multiple surgeries or extensive medical care to treat their injuries will also have a higher case worth.
- If ongoing medical care will be necessary – victims who need medical treatment, even physical therapy, for the future will often have higher case values.
- The lost wages due to time off work due to the injury – victims who have lost income because they couldn’t work as a result of the slip and fall injury will also be compensated more.
Because slip and fall accidents in Florida can produce different injuries for different people, all case values will be different. The value is dependent on the injuries sustained, ongoing medical care, lost income, and whether there are long-term effects of the fall such as deformities or disabilities.
