How Much Is Your Premises Liability Claim Worth?

Understanding the value of your slip and fall case becomes crucial when you're injured on someone else's property. However, there's no one-size-fits-all formula for estimating its worth. Several factors come into play, including the extent of your injuries, potential long-term effects like disability or disfigurement, and ongoing medical needs. Additionally, how your injuries impact your ability to work and your daily life also influences the overall assessment.

In premises liability cases in Missouri, victims can seek different types of damages:

  1. Economic damages cover tangible losses like medical expenses, lost wages, and anticipated future medical costs.
  2. General damages compensate for intangible losses such as physical pain, emotional distress, and a diminished quality of life.
  3. The court may choose to award punitive damages in cases where the defendant's actions demonstrate a blatant disregard for safety.
