  • Lawyer Advocacy: Sweeney Merrigan Personal Injury Lawyers specialize in premises liability, providing aggressive representation from evidence gathering to courtroom advocacy, maximizing victims’ compensation.

Even incidents that appear minor, such as slips, trips, and falls, can lead to severe and lasting physical, emotional, and financial hardships for the victims. If you have experienced an injury on someone else’s property, you might have the right to seek compensation for the entirety of your damages and losses.

Recovering Damages After Your Premises Liability Accident

If you’ve been injured in a premises liability accident, understanding the types of damages you can recover is crucial for ensuring you’re fully compensated for your losses. At Sweeney Merrigan Personal Injury Lawyers, we are committed to helping our clients understand their rights and the compensation they deserve. Here’s a breakdown of the different types of damages that may be available in a premises liability case:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are intended to compensate you for the financial losses you’ve incurred as a result of your accident. These can include:

  • Past, present, and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages due to the inability to work
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Property damage

These tangible losses can be long-lasting and costly, which is why we advocate so diligently for you to recover the necessary compensation. 

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages provide compensation for the intangible losses you’ve experienced, which can be harder to quantify but are equally impactful. These include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Emotional distress
  • Scarring or disfigurement
  • Loss of consortium

We have years of experience when it comes to quantifying your intangible, personal losses and are eager to help you today. 

Punitive Damages

Punitive damages are less common and are awarded in cases where the defendant’s actions were particularly reckless or egregious. These damages are not meant to compensate the victim but rather to punish the defendant and deter similar conduct in the future. It’s important to note that punitive damages are not available in all cases and are subject to specific legal standards.
