Slip/Trip & Fall Accidents in New Orleans
Injuries resulting from a trip/slip and fall accident fall under the broader legal realm of premises liability in the state of Louisiana. Premises liability refers to the responsibility of the owner or manager of any type of property to establish and maintain a safe environment for those who use it. Safety hazards on premises that are not addressed and rectified in a timely manner can cause serious injuries or even death for which victims may be entitled to substantial compensation. At Hammond Law Firm, LLC our experienced and trial-tested personal injury attorneys are well versed in slip/trip and fall accidents and premises liability cases.
Optimally litigating a slip and fall accident case generally necessitates a knowledgeable and experienced premises liability attorney like Peirce Hammond. In order to be successful in your premises liability case, your attorney must prove that the owner or manager of the property failed to properly ensure that slipping or tripping hazards did not exist. In addition to this requirement, the victim must also show that they demonstrated reasonable care and that their own negligence did not cause the accident in which they were injured.
In order to establish liability in a slip or trip and fall injury lawsuit, our attorneys must demonstrate that:
- The owner or manager of the property created the dangerous condition;
- The owner or manager of the property knew or should have known that the condition existed;
- The owner or manager of the property failed to correct the dangerous condition or properly warn others; and
- The result was that the victim suffered a personal injury.
