How is the Value of a Slip and Fall Accident Determined?

Value of a Slip and Fall AccidentHow is the value of a slip and fall accident determined? The value of a slip and fall accident depends on the case. Our personal injury attorneys and lawyers will seek a recovery of lost wages or business income for our slip and fall clients if their injuries cause them to lose time and money from work. As the Winter months are upon us, it’s time to think twice before carelessly leaving an icy surface in front of your business or home. If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident due to a property owner’s negligence, contact the personal injury lawyers at Brent Gordon Law Firm to recover the most compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering.

How is the Value of a Slip and Fall Accident Determined?

The following are some things considered when determining the value of a slip and fall accident:

Medical Bills: Past and future medical bills related to your slip and fall injuries will be a major factor in determining the value of your case. Usually, but not always, a slip and fall settlement amount will cover at least your medical bills.

Pain and Suffering: Turning an individual’s pain and suffering into a settlement amount is one of the least predictable components of a slip and fall case. There are no set rules to determine a person’s pain and suffering. Depending on the severity of your injuries, your attorney and/or insurance adjusters evaluating your claim will determine an appropriate amount usually based on your medical needs.

Lost Wages: If the severity of your injuries from a slip and fall accident caused you to be unable to work, lost wages are also calculated into your claim. You will be required to verify the amount of time you missed as well as your how much you earning are with a pay stub or tax return. Typically, your employer will also have to verify your earnings and time missed as well.

It seems like a nice jester to remove the snow and ice in front of your property to avoid slip and fall injuries but when the snow keeps coming, sometimes it can be hard to keep up. It’s a good idea to know your rights and understand what you can do to receive justice in the event you do experience a slip and fall accident while out in public.

 

Idaho Laws for Snow Removal

Every year thousands of Idahoans face pain, suffering and disability from a slip, trip and fall accident on snow and or ice. Each state typically has different legal obligations to remove ice and snow from public sidewalks. City ordinances and local laws also vary. In Idaho, the sidewalks are to be cleared of snow every day by the owner of the building (home, church, business, etc.). Snow removal requirements in a rental lease agreement vary as to if it is the landlord’s responsibility or the tenant.
