I Was Knocked Down And Injured While Shopping. Is This Considered A Pedestrian Accident?

We have handled numerous cases where a person has been knocked down and injured while shopping.  Typically, this occurs when a store employee pushes a cart into the unsuspecting shopper.  

Louisiana Personal Injury Lawyer Flattmann Law

These cases are typically called “premises liability.”  Under Louisiana law, a store is responsible for someone’s injuries if they (or their employees) actually caused the hazardous condition or if they knew or should have known of the hazardous condition and didn’t take steps to correct it.  In cases where a shopper is knocked down by a store employee pushing a cart, it falls into the first example, where the store actually caused the incident.
