What Kind of Compensation is Available in a Slip and Fall Injury Claim?

You deserve just compensation for the damages you suffered due to your Greenville fall accident. The Greenville personal injury team at Hammack Law Firm has the experience, resources, and strategies to help you get it.

Some of the damages you may receive include but are not limited to:

  • Medical bills: Your claim should include the value of your medical expenses and any related costs. This can also expand to your future treatment costs for your fall injury.
  • Pain and suffering: Pain and suffering damages can be hard to attribute value to, but it can be done with an experienced slip and fall injury attorney. This is usually at least equal to the sum of your medical expenses. It may be several times higher when injuries are severe.
  • Lost wages: Missing work can leave you in a tough financial situation, struggling to pay bills and other expenses. Lost wages damages include the money you lost from not working as a result of your injury.
  • Loss of earning capacity: Sometimes, injuries can leave you unable to perform your previous job. These losses cover this difference in income. It also covers costs for training or education in a different field.
  • Incidental expenses: Extra expenses incurred can add up. For example, you may have spent more than $100 in gas and parking fees to see your doctor.

We also represent families in wrongful death cases. When a fall victim suffers a catastrophic injury and passes away, their family is left with financial losses and expenses. A personal representative can seek to recover those damages for the immediate family under S.C. Ann. § 15-51-10.

What are the Possible Causes of a Slip or Trip and Fall?

Fall injuries occur when someone slips on a wet surface, trips over something in their path, or missteps when climbing up or going down the stairs. Determining exactly what happened and why is a vital part of building strong support for a fall claim.

Some factors that can cause or contribute to a fall include:

  • Shoes you’re wearing (e.g., worn-out treads, untied laces, etc.)
  • Weather conditions outside (e.g., wet or icy floors)
  • Your actions (e.g., rushing, jumping, running)
  • Broken equipment (e.g., unexamined or unapproved ladders breaking)
  • Condition – or type – of floor (e.g., large cracks that can cause a trip)
  • Items in the environment (e.g., tripping over a cord, slipping on wet tile, etc.)
  • Lighting (e.g., stumbling over an item in a dark room)
  • Unsafe work conditions (e.g., chemicals or liquid spilled on a workplace floor)

It can be easy to blame a slip and fall injury on the victim. However, these falls can result from the negligence that other parties, such as property owners or occupiers, commit. This is especially true when the incident occurs in the workplace, a business, or a public space.

For example:

  • The business owner failed to adequately warn of a spillage, such as using a “slippery floor” sign, and a customer slipped and was injured.
  • A homeowner failed to inform visitors of certain areas in the home that pose a threat of causing a trip or slip, and the victim mistakenly hurts themselves in one of those areas.
  • While climbing the stairs at work, you slip and fall because of ice that accumulated overnight.

These are all common examples of negligence causing fall accidents. In each of these examples, another party could be held responsible for the fall injuries.

Victims of fall injuries can suffer a range of injuries, including relatively minor and life-altering injuries. Some of the most commonly treated in hospitals include:

  • Head trauma
  • Lacerations
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Long-term medical complications

The Hammack Law Firm team can generally settle these cases for our clients without suing the at-fault parties or going to trial. However, this may be necessary in some cases. South Carolina law allows us three years from the injury date to begin the process, per S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530. We need to get started much sooner to uncover evidence and pursue an out-of-court settlement, however.
