It is surprising the extent of injuries that one can sustain from a slip and fall or trip and fall accident. If you strike your head or attempt to brace yourself with your hand and wrist, significant medical treatment—and the bills that come with it—is not uncommon.
If you have been seriously injured as a result of slipping or tripping in a place of business or a residence, you may be able to recover compensation for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages in a personal injury lawsuit. At Grady J. Flattmann Attorneys at Law, LLC, we advocate for individuals who have been seriously injured as a result of slipping or tripping due to unsafe conditions.
What Is Necessary to Successfully Prosecute Premises Liability Cases?
Louisiana law states that an owner or property manager must take every precaution possible to provide safe conditions for individuals who use his or her facilities. Successfully litigating a premises liability lawsuit requires that the injured party show the following:
- The condition presented an "unreasonable risk of harm" that was reasonably foreseeable;
- The merchant either created or had actual or constructive notice of the hazardous condition; and
- The merchant failed to exercise reasonable care.
Premises liability cases can turn on the smallest details. It is critical to enlist the services of an experienced personal injury attorney who understands defense strategies and how to protect his clients against them. Mr. Flattmann has the legal knowledge and experience necessary for success.
