Slip-and-fall accidents: Your right to compensation and care

When you're injured due to a slip-and-fall accident in Maryland or Washington, D.C., you do have options. If you were injured due to a business, public or private property not having safe walkways, then you may be able to seek compensation for those injuries.

There are several things compensation can do for you. You can receive money for medical treatments, physical therapy appointments, pain and suffering, prosthetic devices, equipment for your mobility and for the loss of earnings.

When you go to court over a slip and fall accident, you need to show that the place where you fell was clearly neglected. For example, if the business didn't try to remove ice in a direct walkway to their front door and knew customers were coming in, that could be seen as negligent.

You need to show the owner's liability and the extent of the financial and physical damages you've suffered. Medical bills and lost wages could be used to prove this point. You could have an accident reconstruction professional or life-care specialists on your side to help you provide as much information about your health and the accident as possible.

It's possible to get a settlement when you hurt yourself on a private party or business's property. You will want to be sure you have a valid claim for monetary damages, and if so, then you can proceed with a case. It's possible that the case will end in a settlement, but you may have the option of heading to court as well.
