What damages are people injured in a slip, trip and fall accident entitled to recover?
A person injured in a slip and fall is entitled to recover the cost of medical bills, future medical expenses, economic losses and lost wages from missed work, as well as money for pain and suffering, physical impairment, and loss of relations with their spouse.
It is important for a skilled and experienced personal injury lawyer to make a claim for your medical expenses even though they were made by other sources. In slip, trip and fall cases, as well as all other types of personal injury cases, certain medical expenses may be repaid to the insurance carrier who initially paid them provided that the medical payment was made under an ERISA plan. Medicare and Medicaid also have a “statutory lien” on any recovery and will also be reimbursed for payments they made.
