Slip-and-fall accidents can occur anywhere. In Louisiana, all places that allow public entry are required to provide a safe environment for anyone who enters the premises. If they do not provide “reasonable” safety and maintenance measures, they are acting negligently.

Some of the most common places where slips, trips, and falls occur are in grocery stores, shopping centers, office buildings, restaurants, bars/nightclubs, or parking lots. This type of accident can be caused by any number of factors including:

  • Wet surfaces
  • Improper or poorly maintained flooring
  • Failure to provide handrails
  • Improper lighting
  • Obstacles (due to construction)  
  • Incorrect signage

When you are injured on another person's property due to his or her negligence, you may be able to file what is referred to as a premises liability claim to obtain compensation for your injuries. If you have suffered from life-altering injuries, such as a broken bone, concussion, herniated disk or traumatic brain injury due to a slip, trip or fall, we are here to help.

Reasonable Care

At the Law Office of Craig Leydecker, our lawyers have extensive experience handling the complex legal issues that arise in premises liability cases. Louisiana law requires you to prove that the property owner knew or should have known that dangerous conditions existed on the property and failed to take the necessary steps to repair the property.

But even though property owners are required to use reasonable care in the management and maintenance of their buildings, slip-and-fall cases are difficult to win in court. The issue is that there is an exact method for proving that a property owner knew, or should have known, about the danger on the property within a reasonable time.
