Slip and Fall Accidents in Metairie, Louisiana

In the legal community, slip and fall accidents are considered to be premises liability cases, an area of law that deals with the responsibility of property and business owners to provide a safe environment for individuals who come onto their properties and into their businesses.

If you are injured in a slip and fall accident you are required by law to prove either the owner of the property or business caused the hazardous condition to exist, or the owner knew about the hazardous condition and did nothing to correct it, or the owner should have reasonably known about the hazardous condition and failed to correct it.

Owner negligence can result in wet or unlevel floor hazards, snow and ice accumulations, potholes, missing or damaged handrails on steps or decking, broken sidewalks and inadequate lighting. Slip and fall accidents can cause permanent and severe injuries and some falls have proven to be fatal.
