What compensation am I entitled to for a slip and fall injury in Florida?
In slip and fall cases, the damages include past and future medical bills, past and future lost wages, the loss of the ability to earn income in the future as well as any pain and suffering you went through prior and that’s going to happen in the future. This can also include loss of consortium that you have with your spouse or your children or your parents.
It’s really meant, in Florida, to put the injured party back in the place they were prior to the accident. A lot of times, that’s impossible because now they’re injured, and now they’re going through something that’s permanent. But money is the only way to really calculate how we can do that in Florida.
