Slip and fall accidents are often common at work or at a store. If a floor is slippery and wet, or an obstruction in the walkway caused you to slip and fall. No matter the cause of the slip and fall accident, the employer or business may be liable for injuries. The settlement for a slip and fall accident is determined by several factors. For example, how was the business negligent and are they liable under the circumstances? If the business is found negligent, compensation is then awarded to the victim of the slip and fall accident. Such compensation may be awarded for different categories of injury such as medical bills, attorney fees, and pain and suffering. The following are some factors considered when determining settlement for a slip and fall accident.
Determining Settlement for a Slip and Fall Accident
Three questions are often asked when determining a settlement value for any slip and fall accident.
- Who was responsible for the slip and fall accident? (Liability)
- Was the liable party negligent or did they contribute to the fall?
- Did the accident occur because of something the injured party caused?
Negligence of a slip and fall accident is often determined by the conditions such as poor lighting, wet surface, lack of enforcement of the company policy, etc. Once the liable party is found negligent the victim may be rewarded a settlement value for things such as pain and suffering, medical bills both present and future pertaining to this accident, household bills and other necessities.
