What Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?
Every premises liability claim is different. How much your case may settle for depends on a variety of factors, including:
- The nature and severity of your injuries
- The extent of your medical treatment and future medical needs
- Who is liable for your injuries, i.e., a business, government entity, or private individual
- How much work you have missed because of your injuries
- How your injuries affect your future earning capacity
- The value of any personal property damaged during your accident
The type of premises liability case you have can also impact your settlement.
What Damages Can I Receive for a Premises Liability Claim?
If a property owner’s negligence created an unsafe condition that caused your accident and injuries, they might owe you payment for your medical care in a premises liability claim. It includes any treatment you have already received, such as:
- Emergency department care
An attorney from our firm can also help you fight for compensation for your future needs. For some injuries, it can be a long road to recovery. You may require:
- Physical therapy rehabilitation
- Mental health services
- Long-term nursing care
- Follow-up procedures
- Mobility aids, such as a walker or wheelchair
- Other medical equipment
While you heal, you may need help paying your household bills and covering your living expenses.
You can seek a settlement for your lost wages. If you can no longer work or cannot return to your previous employment because of your injuries, you could win compensation for losing your earning capacity.
If your premises liability accident resulted in property damage, you could seek the value of repairing or replacing your items. It may include electronics or jewelry damaged during a slip and fall or more substantial claims related to fires, flooding, and defective buildings.
Your settlement may also include financial awards for the ways your accident and injuries have negatively affected your physical and mental well-being. These damages are non-economic damages or awards for pain and suffering.
If you are pursuing compensation for wrongful death, you can win these awards on behalf of your deceased loved one. You may also seek the costs of their funeral and burial expenses.
Additionally, you could be entitled to survivor benefits for your loss of companionship, consortium, contributions to your household, and financial support.
Evidence in a Premises Liability Claim?
To win a personal injury claim, we must prove the person who caused your injuries acted negligently. You must then show that their negligence resulted in your damages.
Evidence you may use to show liability and damages include:
- Accident or police reports
- Medical records
- Medical bills
- Eyewitness accounts
- Expert testimony
- Cell phone camera footage
- Surveillance videos
Gathering evidence takes time and effort. You need to focus on your recovery, not chasing down billing records, receipts, and paperwork. An attorney from our firm can take this burden off you and your family.
