What kind of compensation can I seek? You can seek compensation in the form of damages for treatment of your injury, costs associated with missed work and costs related to future medical care or needed work rehabilitation. In addition, you could be eligible for damages related to psychological injury or trauma related to your slip and fall accident. In some cases, civil courts award "punitive" damages to punish the defendant and deter future accidents from happening.

Who is responsible for my slip and fall injury? The answer might surprise you.
