How Much Is A Foot Injury Worth In A Slip And Fall Case?
Every foot injury may be different depending on the site of the injury and severity of the injury. For example, some foot injuries may be minor such as a cut or bruise; however, other injuries may be very serious involving broken ankles, toe fractures, toenail injuries, heel injuries, and shattered bones.
Depending on the severity of your injury and whether or not you had surgery, physical therapy, rehabilitation, or lost some function in your foot, will help determine the value of your claim. For example, an injured foot that heals nicely within weeks versus an injured foot that requires surgery, pins and screws, bracing, and casting will often be worth less.
While both a minor and serious foot injury that results from a slip and fall accident should receive compensation, the amount of compensation may be different depending on if you lost function in your foot, if you lost income as a result of being off of work, and if you have suffered a disability or chronic pain. All of these things will be a factor in your case in determining the value of your claim.
If your foot injury was the result of a store’s negligence or property owner’s carelessness, you need to pursue a Florida slip and fall accident claim.
