Who Will Pay for My Surgery After I Fall

Q

Who Will Pay for My Surgery After I Fall?

A
That depends on why you fell. If you fell because of your own carelessness, then you are responsible for any medical costs that your health insurance doesn’t cover. However, if you fell in a New Jersey or New York slip and fall accident that occurred because a property owner or manager failed to correct a problem that they knew about or should have known about prior to your injury, then you may be able to recover damages.

The property owner or manager may be responsible for your surgery costs, beyond what your health insurance covers. Additionally, you may be entitled to costs related to your surgery that your health insurance would not cover such as lost income while you were unable to work, out-of-pocket expenses that you incurred as a result of your surgery (such as nursing help or childcare), and even compensation for your pain and suffering.
