Compensation in Newport Beach Slip and Fall Cases

The amount of compensation Newport Beach residents receive after suffering injuries in slip and fall accidents varies significantly from one case to the next. People who suffer injuries that leave them permanently disabled or disfigured tend to receive the most substantial awards.

When calculating compensation, judges typically consider factors such as:

  • The cost of the plaintiff’s medical treatment
  • The plaintiff’s ongoing care costs
  • The amount of time the plaintiff missed from work
  • The affect the plaintiff’s injury will have on their earning capacity
  • The mental anguish the plaintiff endured, and
  • The impact the plaintiff’s injury will have on their overall quality of life

In some cases, the judge will also consider whether the defendant acted maliciously. If they did, the court may award punitive damages.
