How Much Is My Bradenton Slip And Fall Case Worth?

  • Story Highlights:

Oftentimes, when we slip or trip and fall, we blame it on our own clumsiness. In most cases, we are right. However, there are times where our slip and fall was caused by another party’s negligence. In those cases, the negligent party could be held liable for the accident and financially responsible for your subsequent injuries. If you have a claim for your Bradenton slip and fall, you may be curious what your accident is worth. Here is how the damages are calculated.

Proving Liability In A Slip And Fall Case


Proving liability in a slip and fall case requires a lot of evidence, documentation, and legal knowledge. That is why you should always work with a slip and fall attorney to help get compensation for your injuries. In order to prove liability for your injuries, you have to prove:

• You have been injured. This requires collecting medical documentation of your injuries including diagnostics, treatments, physical therapy, and pharmaceuticals.

•  The property owner had a duty of care to you. A duty of care is the legal obligation to ensure that a property is safe for authorized and invited visitors. For example, a grocery store has a duty of care to ensure that all their customers have a safe experience. This is proven by the definitions in Florida’s state laws.

• The property owner was negligent in their duty of care. You have to prove that the hazard was avoidable with a reasonable amount of care. A reasonable amount of care basically means that any reasonable person would recognize that there is a hazard and either remedy or warn their guests of the hazard. For example, if a grocery store mops up a spill, they typically put out a sign that warns people the floor is wet and to proceed with caution to avoid a fall. A store is negligent in their duty if they either fail to mop up the spill or do not warn people of the wet floor.

• Finally, you need to prove that their negligence caused your injury. This is proven with medical records, witness testimony, and sometimes video footage. You will need to obtain these things to prove your case.

An attorney will help you with all of these processes to prove liability and will also help you fight for fair and full compensation for your injuries.

What Is The Value Of My Slip And Fall Injuries?


Calculating the value of injuries after a slip and fall can be a bit complex. Most people just think about getting their medical bills paid. However, there are ancillary costs that are caused by an injury. For example, if your injury makes you miss work, you can lose out on income and benefits. Another example, is the cost of going to and from doctors appointments in pursuit of your medical care. An attorney will look at more than just the direct costs. They will look at all of your financial losses as a result of the injury. Then they will calculate a figure based on Florida law and your unique circumstances. The best way to learn what your slip and fall case is worth is to speak to an attorney.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
