There is no average settlement for a slip and fall accident. Every case is dependent upon liability or who’s at fault for the accident, and the amount of medical bills and pain and suffering that you have. The real key in a slip and fall case is who’s at fault and what’s the percentage of fault. A jury would look at a pie chart and they can divide up the fault between the landowner and the person that’s hurt. If they decide it’s 50/50, then you will only get half of your damages.
That’s why it’s so important to hire a lawyer that has handled a lot of slip and fall accident cases that can really focus in and hone in on proving liability on the part of the landowner, because it will increase your damages.
