"This was my first accident ever and with that it was a 5 car pile up. I was scared and had no idea what to do. I called Ben's office to get me some help when the insurance was trying to say they didn't know who was at fault and I had to pay out of pocket."

How is a Slip and Fall Settlement Calculated?

Calculating a settlement for a slip and fall involves assessing many factors related to the accident, the resulting injuries, and the impact the injuries have had on the accident victim’s life. Slip and fall settlements are meant to compensate the accident victim for their losses and damages.

When calculating a slip and fall settlement, the following factors are considered:

Medical Costs

The cost of medical treatment for the injuries sustained in the slip and fall accident is a major factor. This can include emergency room visits, doctor consultations, surgeries, medications, rehabilitation, and any ongoing medical expenses.

Lost Wages from Work

If the accident caused the victim to miss work or forced them to change careers due to the severity of their injuries,  the settlement may include compensation for lost wages or decreased earning capacity. This can include both past and future income losses.

Pain and Suffering

Compensation for physical pain and emotional suffering that occurred as a result of the accident is a subjective but a major component of the settlement.

Permanent Disability or Impairment

If the accident led to a permanent disability, the settlement may include compensation for the long-term impact it can have on the accident victim’s life, including reduced quality of life, changes in daily activities, and ongoing medical needs.

Property Damage

If personal property was damaged during the accident, the cost of replacing those items would be included in the settlement.

Liability and Negligence

The degree of liability and negligence on the part of the property owner is another significant factor. If an attorney can demonstrate that the property owner was grossly negligent, it may influence the settlement amount.

Insurance Policy Limits

The insurance policy limits of the property owner’s liability insurance can impact the maximum amount that can be recovered. If the damages exceed the policy limits, additional compensation may need to come from the property owner’s personal assets.

Legal Fees

Legal fees are deducted from the settlement amount. Many slip and fall attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, taking a small percentage of the final settlement.
