Our attorneys have recovered slip and fall injury settlements worth millions of dollars, but every case must be examined on a case by case basis as liability (fault) may be factually different and the nature and severity of the injuries suffered will vary.

The key point here is that while the settlement value of your case will depend on the individual facts of your case, such as your injuries and how they have affected your life, your medical needs, and how clear liability will be and the extent of the property owner’s liability insurance.

One thing remains true across all of these types of personal injury cases: who your attorney is matters.  Insurance companies will pay significantly more to people who are represented by experienced attorneys with an established track record of settlements and trial verdicts than they will to an attorney, even an attorney who holds himself out as a personal injury attorney, who does not have the same experience with premises liability injury cases.  Our slip and fall cases and settlements amounts page will show you winning outcomes our lawyers have been able to achieve for accident victims we help.
