Who Pays Personal Injury Damages In A Slip & Fall Or Car Accident?

There are many different legal issues and legal advice around personal injury and insurance law. A common question people ask a lot is “who pays personal injury damages?” Is it a defendant paying out of pocket or is it their insurance company? 

Car Accident Compensation

In almost all cases it’s the defendant’s insurance company that pays the compensation. If it’s a car accident case, it’s the at-fault driver’s insurance company that’s paying out the damages. It doesn’t matter whether it’s an accident involving a car, a truck, a motorcycle, a snowmobile or an ATV. We will ensure you are fairly compensated by the insurance company of the at-fault driver.

Slip & Fall Compensation

In a slip and fall case, it’s the liability insurer for the building owner that’s paying out the damages. We are here to help when you are hurt and need professionals in slip and fall claims. Regardless of whether it is a fall on private property, a city sidewalk or at a large business, it is our job to help you get your life back together and ensure you are fairly compensated.

The Bottom Line

In both these situations, it’s a plaintiff or injured person going up against a very large insurance company. These are multi-million dollar corporations that care about profits and not necessarily paying out claims. So, in a situation like that, you need a strong legal team on your side. If you have any more questions, contact us. We’re here to help you.
