You may claim compensation for any of the injuries that you sustain in a slip and fall accident. Some common types of slip and fall injuries include:

  • Broken bones
  • Bruising and internal bleeding
  • Tendon and ligament damage
  • Spinal and nerve injuries
  • Traumatic brain injury, concussion

How much you get for a slip and fall is based on the losses that you sustain. The more severe your injuries and suffering, the more you get for your slip and fall case. The value of a slip and fall claim is generally the total of economic losses, like medical bills and lost income, along with a pain and suffering award proportional to the severity of the injuries. Of course, how much you get for a slip and fall accident depends on whether you pursue the claim and take the right steps to seek compensation.

After a slip and fall accident, you must file a legal claim. The case begins with filing a complaint that states the elements of negligence. You state the facts of how the negligence occurred and why the defendant is liable for your injuries. Then, file the case in the appropriate court. Serve the other party, build your evidence and attend preliminary court dates. Finally, you resolve the case through settlement or trial.

Only a small percent of slip and fall cases go to trial. Most cases resolve by a settlement agreement before trial. In order to receive an appropriate settlement, there is a great deal of work for a slip and fall victim to do. They must build a strong case that proves the other side is legally liable for their claim. They must have compelling evidence of the value of the damages. Most slip and fall cases don’t go to trial because the parties are able to engage in discovery and negotiate possible non-trial resolutions to the case.


“I was in juried in a slip n fall to no fault of my own. I really didn’t think of taking pics or noticing times with my hand hanging off my arm. The next day the Bachus & Schanker commercial aired so i took a chance and called. I spoke with a rep for them and i felt comfortable with letting them handle it. In my mind i really didn’t have a chance but this team really went all out for me and came through. Thank you Bryan and Jeronimo for all your hard work. If your injuried in an accident these are the guys to call first thanks Bachus & Schanker” – Israel M 5/5 Stars
