Why Should I Speak with a Coconut Grove Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer?

When people get hurt in a slip and fall accident, they often have questions about what they should do and if they can recover damages. If they don't talk to an attorney that specializes in personal injury law, an injured victim runs the risk of getting the wrong information or no information at all. Lack of knowledge can prove to be costly, especially when you've been seriously hurt. Common questions include:

Can I Recover Damages if I’m Partially At-Fault for a Slip and Fall?

There are times when an injured party’s actions may have contributed to their accident. You may be hurt if you slipped and fell on a newly mopped floor while shopping. But if you weren’t paying attention and failed to notice a warning sign posted by the shop owner, you may be partially responsible for the accident. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t recover damages if you’ve been hurt in a slip and fall accident.

Under Florida’s comparative negligence rule, the injured victim’s award is reduced by their percentage of fault. So, if your award is $100,000 and you were found to share 30% of the responsibility for the accident, you will receive $70,000.

Should I Settle Directly with the Insurance Company?

An insurance company may push to settle your claim quickly. If you are financially strapped and can't pay your bills, a fast settlement may sound like a great idea. But quick payments can deprive accident victims of the full damage payout that they deserve. Injuries may be more extensive than expected, or your recovery may keep you from working for a more extended period.

You may recover compensatory damages for pain and suffering, future care, or a decline in your earning potential. If you don't have a skilled professional injury attorney's help, you can end up with less money than you need.

Am I Entitled to Damages Beyond Medical Costs?

Damages awarded to a slip and fall accident victim include hospital stays, medical procedures, and doctor visits. However, the injured party may also be entitled to a reimbursement for wages lost while they were recovering. If a patient is in an immense amount of pain, they may recover damages to compensate for this.

Extensive injuries may require future treatment, rehabilitation, and in-home care. If the damage is permanent, it could impact your future ability to earn a living. A settlement may include compensation for these factors.
