When someone suffers injury and pain from a slip and fall accident as a result of another party’s negligence, that innocent victim may be entitled to financial compensation. This may be owed to them for the purposes of covering expenses incurred due to the accident as well as simply because they are now experiencing suffering at no fault of their own. Some life altering consequences of a serious accident and injury are not as obvious as financial burdens involved and can include:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Emotional distress
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Financial Burdens After a Slip and Fall Accident
Why should the victim of a responsible party’s negligence have to pay for medical treatment they should never have needed to seek? You should not have to and the law protects your rights in this regard. When we can prove that someone else is responsible for your injuries, the law will hold them responsible for the medical expenses resulting from your pain and suffering. A slip and fall accident can change your life in too many ways, causing excess stress and financial burdens. Many details are considered when determining what you are owed for your suffering. Some of these medical considerations can include:
- Medical expenses: Costs for medical attention such as ambulance, emergency room, and hospital bills, as well as doctor ordered diagnostic testing like CT scans and MRIs will be factored in.
- Pain medications: Immediate and ongoing prescriptions to treat injuries and extensive pain can be expensive depending on your health insurance situation and costs covered.
- Recovery therapies: Depending on the extent of your injuries, occupational and physical therapies may be necessary to help you fully recover and regain movement and physical abilities.
- Home care: Sometimes injuries can be severe enough that a victim’s injuries require full time care and attention from nursing and other home care professionals.
- Accessibility alterations: If you have been injured to a permanent degree and are facing debilitating physical ailment, alterations to your home or vehicle may be required in order for you to function adequately.
Your other financial needs must be taken into account as well. After you have been seriously injured, going back into work at full capacity may be impossible for a short or lengthy period of time, if it is possible at all. Loss of financial earning ability is an important part of any personal injury case and the party responsible for your injuries will too be held accountable for this loss on your behalf. Any amount of time you are kept away from working to earn income is too much and when it is due to the fault of someone else, you have the right to seek recovery of those unattainable funds.
Loss of earning capacity can even be proven in situations where you are self employed. There are lost opportunities, customers, and projects to consider. Looking at your records prior to the accident will play an important role in navigating these details. It can be challenging to demonstrate your loss of economic opportunities and that is why having a slip and fall attorney on your side is so important. Let us figure out the navigation of this complicated legal process.
