Damages you can recover following premises liability cases

If you have been injured in a premises liability case, you might be wondering what type of damages you can recover in these cases. Premises liability cases involve a host of different items, including slip-and-fall accidents, dangerous property conditions, wet floors, hazardous conditions, icy sidewalks and much more. Here are the damages you can recover in such a case.

The victim of a premises liability case can recover medical expenses as part of damages. Medical expenses can include ambulatory rides, hospital bills, medical tests, rental equipment (wheelchairs, ramps, oxygen tanks, cpap machines), in-home care, surgeries, rehabilitation, therapy and more.

Pain and suffering is another damage that can be recovered in a premises liability case. The victim of this type of accident, depending on their injury, could suffer quite a painful injury. They could also go through suffering if the accident caused injury to their head.

Loss of wages is another damage that can be recovered by the plaintiff in a premises liability case. The plaintiff might miss quite a bit of time at work due to his or her injury. If the accident didn't happen at work, workers' compensation will not cover lost wages. This is why they are recoverable as damages. A lengthy absence from work can leave you in a tight spot when it comes to paying expenses. You can also recover future lost wages if the injury will keep you out indefinitely.

There is a possibility that punitive damages can be recovered in a premises liability case. Punitive damages are intended to hurt the defendant in the case because of the harm that they have caused. This occurs in premises liability cases when a property owner knew of a hazard, but failed to rectify it before someone suffered an injury.

A premises liability case has a lot of moving parts. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury in a premises liability case, contact our firm to learn how you can recover damages.
