Negligence and carelessness can result in a fall accident for just about anyone regardless of their age. In fact, even a baby in utero is at a risk of sustaining fall injuries if the mother slips or falls.

Slip and fall accidents can often be tricky when it comes to suing the person responsible for causing the accident. Negligence of the property owner in question, an engineer or a road designer has to be proven with evidence to build a solid case in your favor. Negligence can be in the any of the following forms: poor maintenance, inspection or a poor repairing job done.

In addition to proving the negligence of the person held accountable, an equal defense case must be formulated to prove that the victim of the slip and fall injury was not in the wrong himself and was not negligent.

Our team of Clearwater slip and fall attorneys are seasoned to produce a cohesive and compelling case taking in view both of the aforementioned elements. A solid case in your favor will be able to compensate financially for the emergency and long term medical bills required to treat the injuries cause by the accident. Other non-financial forms of compensation can also be achieved according to the type of case it is.Clearwater slip and fall lawyers

Financial recovery in a slip and fall accident not only includes compensation for the medical bills that are required to treat the injuries but also any loss of future income during the period of recovery can be contested for. In this case, not only the victim of the injury can benefit but also the family members that depend on the victim’s earnings. Cessation of the earnings due to the accident can be financially compensated through a well-formulated case.

Non-economic damages are vague and more difficult to recover in a case of fall and slip accidents. Despite being challenging, the compensation is not impossible and a good slip and fall attorney should be able to help you bring justice in this regard. Non-economic damages include therapy, emotional support and companionship.
