What Kind of Damages Can I Claim in a Slip and Fall Accident?

If you have been injured in a slip-and-fall accident, it may seem like the case is straightforward enough to merit representing yourself. After all, you've probably only considered seeking repayment for any medical treatment you went through following the accident. Resolving this simple claim could be easy, but in some cases, the defense will fight you down to a negligible sum - and you could seek damages for a number of other things.

As such, it's always best to seek help from an experienced New Hampshire personal injury attorney who is familiar with the amount and types of damages that you can claim and are most likely to win based on your case.

What you can claim will vary depending on the severity and duration of your injury. An attorney will look at the damages that directly relate to the injury, like medical and physical therapy bills, transportation, lost income and even the value of clothing damaged in the accident.

Other damages that may apply in a personal injury case as those that relate to quality of life and future considerations like pain and suffering from the accident such as lost future wages or inability to engage in hobbies, exercise or other activities, among numerous others. Because of their nebulous nature, it can be difficult to put a price tag, so to speak, on these things.

By partnering with an experienced personal injury attorney, you can ensure that you have the best chance of recovering any damages you're entitled to in a slip-and-fall case.
