New Orleans Slip-and-Fall Accident Lawyers

Seeking Compensation for Your Fall

Slippery, wet floors, torn carpeting and broken stair rails are dangerous. If you fell and were seriously injured on someone else's land or business because the owner did not take care of the property, you may be able to recover damages for your injuries.

The New Orleans slip-and-fall accident attorneys at Frischhertz Poulliard Frischhertz Impastato LLC know what it takes to secure full compensation for your injuries. We do not accept the first low offer that we receive, and we are willing to take your case to trial if the insurance company refuses to provide a fair settlement.

Accountability for Property Owner's Neglect

A slip-and-fall accident is a premises liability claim. That means property owners have a duty to adequately maintain their property. Unlit walkways, unkempt sidewalks, damaged railings, loose flooring and spills can all cause you to fall and become injured. If the store negligently maintained its property, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries.

Louisiana law creates a distinction between dangerous conditions that a store or property owner created and one that someone else created. If someone else created the dangerous condition, the store must have had time to repair the condition. For example, a fall happened because a store failed to put up a sign after mopping the floor has a stronger chance of success than a fall that happened a few seconds after another customer spilled water on the floor.
