What causes a slip and fall accident?
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), falls are the leading cause of injury and death for older Americans. Yet slip and falls can affect anyone — young or old. When you visit the property of another person or party, you expect the premises to be free of hazards. Whether at the grocery store, a restaurant, a neighbor’s house, or a shopping mall, you shouldn’t have to worry about avoiding dangerous conditions. Some common examples of slip and fall cases we handle include:
Obstacle or debris laden walkways/floors
Cracked pavement and parking lots
Poorly lit stairwells
Liquid spills caused by leaky refrigeration or air conditioning units
Slip and fall accidents can cause catastrophic injuries including broken bones, lacerations, traumatic brain injuries, neck and spinal injuries, paralysis, and even death. If you or someone you love suffers injury while on the premises of another person or party, we want to hear your story. Our injury lawyers sympathize with your situation and work expeditiously to determine the best course of action to help you secure the fair compensation you need for your recovery.
How do you prove a slip and fall accident occurred?
Our litigation lawyers fight aggressively to help slip and fall victims obtain the maximum compensation for their injuries. If you suffer injury because of a condition existing in or on a merchant’s premise, according to Louisiana Revised Statute 9:2800.6, you must be able to prove the following:
The condition presented an unreasonable risk of harm to you and a reasonable person would have foreseen that risk.
The store owner either created or had actual or constructive notice of the condition that caused you damages, prior to the occurrence.
The merchant failed to exercise reasonable care.
Throughout Louisiana, our firm has helped many slip and fall victims take action against negligent property owners. If a dangerous property condition causes you or a loved one harm, you can trust us to stand up for your rights and help you file a premises liability lawsuit in a timely manner.
