Helping You Seek 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 property because the owner did not take care of their land or business, you may be able to recover damages for your injuries.
At Frischhertz & Impastato, in Louisiana, we 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.
We Hold Neglectful Property Owners Accountable
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 case involving a fall that happened because a store failed to put up a sign after mopping the floor has a stronger chance of success than a claim for a fall that happened a few seconds after another customer spilled water on the floor.
