Hazardous conditions can occur anywhere in both private and public locations. If you slip on someone else’s property and suffer an injury, you may have a case for compensation. Slip and fall accidents fall under the umbrella of premises liability. At The Wenck Firm, LLC, Colby Wenck will handle slip and fall cases in Metairie, New Orleans, Harvey, Gretna, Chalmette, Meraux, Kenner and throughout Southeast Louisiana. We are skilled at gathering the necessary evidence to prove our case and effectively negotiate with insurance companies for fair and maximum compensation.
Some of The Many Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents in Louisiana:
- Slippery floors due to spills or leaks
- Uneven flooring or walkways that are not properly marked
- Paths or stairwells without proper illumination
- Stairways without handrails or broken handrails
- Cluttered aisles in a store
Slip and fall accidents commonly happen in many different places including grocery stores, hospitals, schools, retail stores, apartment complexes, airports, and government buildings. Property owners have the responsibility to keep their property in safe condition and to properly post warnings when hazards occur. In some cases, a property owner will plead ignorance to an unsafe condition, but lack of awareness of a problem is not always an adequate defense.
