If you have recently been the victim of a slip and fall which wasn’t your fault then you may be interested to find out the value of slip and fall settlements. Each injury claim varies and there are no set settlement amounts in slip and fall accidents as each case is individually assessed according to the nuances of each claim.
What factors are taken into account when calculating slip and fall settlements?
- The severity of the injury and its impact upon the victim is the most important factor when placing a value on a slip or fall accident compensation claim
- If a victim has endured a short-term painful injury (which according to medical expertise will leave them with no long-term impact upon their ability to continue with their day-to-day working life, social life or hobbies) then they may be awarded compensation as redress for their injury and inconvenience. However this compensation will be substantially lower than a victim whose injury has had a major impact upon their life (and the medical opinion is that they will not make a full recovery and that their ability to continue with their day-to-day business will be severely hampered).
- It may be that a victim of a serious slip or fall has had to pay for costly adaptations to their home or vehicle. If a slip or fall has affected someone’s ability to work to their previous capacity or level, then a proficient injury lawyer would seek a loss of future earnings payment to be incorporated into a slip and fall compensation claim to account for this.
