Getting hurt is expensive. You are incurring a lot of financial damage because of your medical bills and lost income, and also because of your out-of-pocket costs.
While your out-of-pocket expenses may not be the largest of your damages, they are important and you deserve to make a fair recovery of these costs.
Your out-of-pocket costs will be unique and will depend on your individual needs. Some costs that should be considered include:
- Cleaning help.
- Transportation costs.
Of course, these must be expenses that you incurred because of your injury and not simply expenses that you were already paying prior to getting hurt.
Inclusion of Out-of-Pocket Costs Isn’t Automatic
In order to recover damages for your out-of-pocket expenses you must prove two things. First, you must prove the economic value, or dollar amount, of your damages. This could include past, current, and future costs. Second, you must prove that you had to pay these costs because of your slip and fall injury.
The insurance company or the defendant is going to fight hard against your fair recovery so that they can pay you as little as possible.
