What Damages Are Recoverable After a Slip and Fall in California?

The answer to this question depends on the specific facts of your case. Once hired, our attorneys will evaluate your medical records, invoices from accident-related expenses, and other evidence you have gathered to determine the types of damages you may be able to recover. In the state of California, personal injury claimants can pursue compensation for:

  • Economic Damages: These include past and future healthcare expenses, lost income, reduced earning capacity, and other objectively verifiable expenses you have incurred or might incur in the future due to your injuries.
  • Non-Economic Damages: These include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment, loss of consortium, and disability and disfigurement.
  • Exemplary Damages: Commonly known as, “punitive” damages, these are intended to punish the defendant for egregious behavior that constitutes malice, fraud, or oppression.

The damages you may be able to recover will depend on the severity of your injuries, the amount of income you lost during recovery, whether you will be able to return to work, the effects of your injuries on your relationships, and many other factors. Our Personal Injury Lawyers will calculate your damages to make sure your claim includes all possible recoverable losses.
