Injured On Someone Else's Property?
We Make Property Owners Pay For Unsafe Conditions
Perhaps no injury is more common than a slip-and-fall injury, but these cases are not always straightforward. You must prove that you were harmed by a hidden hazard or unsafe condition and that the owner knew of the danger and could have prevented your accident.
If you have suffered an injury on another's property — commercial, public or private — contact Schwartz Law Firm LLC of Metairie and Baton Rouge. Our highly experienced personal injury attorneys can fight for the compensation you are entitled to.
Let's discuss your possible premises liability claim. The consultation is free and there are no fees unless we get you compensation. Call 504-837-2263 today.
An Obligation To Take Reasonable Care Of Visitors
The crux of a slip-and-fall case is establishing that the other party is liable. You have a duty to look out for yourself that extends to avoiding obvious defects or dangers. As an example, if a reasonable person would not step into an open manhole marked with warning signs, you cannot expect to recover damages for your injuries if you do.
But if that manhole is not marked or roped off, it is a different story. The owner of business premises — such as a grocery, a restaurant, or a casino — invites people to come onto those premises to spend money shopping, eating, gambling or whatever their enterprise may be. As an invitee, you are entitled to a safe place to conduct your business.
The property owner has an obligation to ensure that the property conforms to building code standards, as well as state guidelines about how buildings can be designed and traversed. The owner also has an obligation to provide proper security, to maintain the premises and not to ignore obvious hazards.
We will work to prove that the property owner or caretaker (a) knew or should have known of the dangerous condition and (b) had an opportunity to fix the problem or warn you. We know that slipping and tripping accidents can cause severe injuries, including head trauma, back injuries, and broken bones and fractures. You are entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost time from work, pain, and suffering, and any lasting disability or disfigurement.
