A premises liability accident occurs when you get hurt on someone else’s property. It could be a business like a retail store. Since you weren’t responsible for the accident, you also shouldn’t have to pay the bills associated with it.
These are the things you could be compensated for after a premises liability accident.
After your accident, you had to go to the doctor for treatment. You could receive compensation for your medical bills including tests, appointments, and medications you had to pay for, along with any other associated medical costs.
Damage to Your Property
If your property was damaged in the accident, then you could qualify for compensation. For example, if you slipped and fell in a retail store while holding a fragile ornament you owned, then the store might be responsible for covering the cost of your broken ornament.
If you had to take off work to go to doctors’ appointments, then you could receive money for your lost wages. If your injury is so bad that you’re going to lose out on future wages and bonuses as well, then those could be considered in your final settlement.
Pain and Suffering
If you experienced physical pain and mental anguish following your premises liability accident, then you may be eligible for damages. This could apply especially if you suffered from a more serious injury and cannot do things that you used to be able to do, like your favorite hobbies.
