How Much Is My Slip and Fall Claim Worth?

The amount you can collect in a slip and fall lawsuit depends on several factors. Your attorney can argue for economic damages, including past and future medical bills, lost wages, and changes to your home or vehicle to accommodate your injuries. 

Your attorney can also pursue non-economic damages, which compensate for intangible impacts such as pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life. In rare cases, Florida also allows for punitive damages. Your attorney must show clear and convincing evidence of intentional misconduct or gross negligence on the defendant’s part. If your case merits these damages, your Farah & Farah Daytona Beach personal injury lawyer will argue persuasively for them. 

Other steps our slip and fall accident lawyers can take to seek maximum compensation for your injuries include: 

  • Investigating your accident and gathering evidence such as medical records, videos of the area where your injury occurred, and corporate records 
  • Negotiating with the other party’s insurance company 
  • Securing eyewitness and expert testimony 
  • Preparing you for depositions and court proceedings 
  • Advocating for you in court if the other party won’t settle fairly 

Our Farah & Farah Daytona Beach slip and fall lawyers won’t allow the other party to trick you into dropping your case or accepting a lowball offer. The decision to accept a settlement is ultimately yours, but your skilled Farah & Farah team will always be there to advise you.

What To Do First After a Slip and Fall

Your health is the most important thing, so seek medical attention first. Keep any documentation of your visits, including medical bills. Don’t miss any follow-up appointments, which would give the other party an argument that your injuries aren’t serious. 

Next, hire an accomplished Daytona slip and fall accident lawyer at Farah & Farah. We have strong community ties, so if you need to find a qualified doctor to document your injury, we can assist you. 

You have only two years to file your slip and fall claim under the Florida statute of limitations. These are often complicated lawsuits that may spiral into finger-pointing. Two years is a short time to collect evidence and build a strong claim. Partner with a Daytona Beach slip and fall accident attorney from Farah & Farah so we can support you and your family and investigate your case.

Proving Negligence in Slip and Fall Accident Claims

To succeed in a slip and fall accident lawsuit, you must prove the property owner’s negligence. This requires demonstrating four key elements: 

  1. Duty of Care: You were a lawful visitor on the property, meaning the property owner owed you a duty to maintain its premises in a reasonably safe condition. 
  2. Breach of Duty: The property owner failed to fulfill this duty by neglecting to fix or warn visitors of a dangerous condition, such as a slippery floor, uneven surface, or inadequate lighting. 
  3. Causation: The property owner’s action or inaction directly caused your slip and fall accident. This means you wouldn’t have fallen if the property had been maintained safely. 
  4. Damages: You suffered tangible and measurable damages resulting from the fall, such as medical expenses, lost income, physical pain, or emotional distress. 

Decades of building success in negligence cases fuel our passion to get you the compensation you deserve. At Farah & Farah, we’re here to fight for you, every step of the way.

Common Slip and Fall Accident Causes

Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere a property owner, renter, management company, or other responsible party fails to maintain their premises. Some common causes of slips and falls include:

  • Tripping hazards such as extension cords 
  • Poorly maintained stairwells 
  • Uneven sidewalks and walkways 
  • Icy or snowy sidewalks and walkways 
  • Poorly maintained parking lots 

If you were hurt in a slip and fall accident resulting from someone else’s negligence, you can hold them accountable for your medical bills, lost wages, and other losses. A Daytona slip and fall lawyer from Farah & Farah will fight for you and your family.
