Slip and Fall Accidents
In 1996 the Louisiana Legislature changed the law regarding slip and fall accidents making it far more difficult to win a slip and fall case. Many people who are injured in a slip and fall are under the mistaken impression that if you are injured on someone else’s property, they are automatically responsible for the injuries sustained. This perception of slip and fall cases is incorrect. It takes experience and knowledge (along with good facts) to win a slip and fall case.
Louisiana law requires that if you are involved in a slip and fall accident you must prove that there was a hazard which constituted an unreasonable risk of harm and that the premises owner created the hazard (or) knew or should have known about the hazard. Our slip and fall accidents attorneys can help you to get to the heart of the issue.
The slip and fall lawyers at Williamson Fontenot Campbell & Whittington, LLC formerly represented large grocery chains, home improvement stores, and other businesses defending against claims following slip and fall accidents. Now we represent the victims and we use the information we learned to recover damages for valid slip and fall claims.
The media often portrays people who are injured in a slip and fall accident as con artists looking to make a quick buck. This perception ignores the hundreds of valid and serious injuries caused by businesses who neglect their premises or fail to protect patrons from hazards. Many lawyers do not even consider taking slip and fall or premises liability cases because of the difficulty in carrying the burden of proof. However, the lawyers at Williamson Fontenot Campbell & Whittington, LLC have a history of taking legitimate slip and fall accidents and winning recoveries for our clients.
