Slip and Fall Injury Lawyer
The Team at The Marcowitz Law Firm Can Help You File Your Claim for Compensation
If you slip and fall on someone else’s property due to their negligence, you may pursue a claim to recover money for your medical expenses, along with lost wages and compensation for pain and suffering.
If the fall is especially serious and leads to death, such as a fall that causes a traumatic brain injury, surviving family members may pursue a wrongful death claim.
Any percentage of shared fault or comparative negligence affects the amount you receive. For example, a jury might award $10,000 for injuries suffered from a fall because of that wet restaurant floor. But if a jury finds that you are 40 percent responsible, it leaves the potential amount you could recover at $6,000, not the full award.
