New York personal injury law provides for specific types of damages for slip, trip, and fall accidents. These damages can include compensation for:

  • Past and future pain and suffering
  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Lost income
  • Loss of annuity
  • Loss of pension
  • Loss of Social Security income
  • Loss of healthcare benefits
  • Loss in the value of household services
  • Loss of consortium – such as spousal relationships that have been negatively impacted by the injury

Because New York is a pure comparative negligence state, if you did something that contributed to your injury, it is possible that any compensation you get may be reduced based on the part you played in the injury.
