“Megan Kiefer was my attorney in a case against one of the most powerful companies in the U.S. She made my experience the least traumatic as possible.

She quickly the most important facts to build the case. I always felt good and convinced that she will win the case in my favor – and she did!”

Defining “Slip and Fall” Accidents in Louisiana

A “slip and fall” accident is any accident where you slip, trip, and/or fall and are injured as a result. According to the National Safety Council, slip and falls are the most common nonfatal accidental injury, and the second-most common accidental cause of death.

Under premises liability law, all property owners have a “duty of care” to anyone who legally enters their property. This means that they must take reasonable action to maintain their property and prevent it from causing any injuries.

If a property owner fails to meet this standard, they can be held liable for any damages caused by their property. This means that if you were injured on someone else’s property, and you can prove that they acted negligently, you can file a premises liability lawsuit against them to recover your damages.

In order to prove that a property owner acted negligently, you need to prove four things:
1

There was a hazard on the premises that constituted an unreasonable and foreseeable risk of harm.
2

The defendant either created or had actual or constructive notice of the condition.
3

The merchant failed to exercise reasonable care. 
4

You have suffered damages as a result of the hazard.

Causes of Louisiana Slip and Fall Accidents

Every accident is different, and there are countless ways that negligent property maintenance can result in a slip and fall.

However, here are some of the most common causes:

  • Wet surfaces, such as slippery floors and spills
  • Uneven surfaces of a floor, such as cracks, loose floorboards, or uneven decking
  • Uneven surfaces of a parking lot, such as cracks, potholes or sidewalks
