Were You Injured In A Slip & Fall Accident?

When property owners or operators fail to warn customers or visitors of known hazards that cannot be fixed immediately, people are going to get hurt. When there is inadequate lighting in entryways, stairs, and walkways of a commercial property, torn or ripped rugs lining the entrances of restaurants, falling objects in retail stores, or wet and slippery surfaces with no visible signage making the dangers aware, people are going to get hurt.

Where Do Slip and Fall Accidents Occur in Baton Rouge, Louisiana?

According to the latest census, 222,185 residents call Baton Rouge home. In addition, East Baton Rouge Parish is Louisiana’s most populous parish, with just over 453,000 people calling her home.

This is important because our fellow city and parish residents all share the same spaces, which means property owners and operators must constantly maintain their premises to ensure we are all safely using their goods and services, without getting hurt. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.

Fortunately, Louisiana residents can pursue private, public, and government property owners and operators for negligence that leads to injuries or fatalities on their premises.

Some of the more common places Baton Rouge slip and fall injuries occur include:

  • Airports
  • Amusement Parks
  • Apartments and Condominiums
  • Bars and Nightclubs
  • Construction and Industrial Sites
  • Educational Institutions
  • Entertainment and Sports Venues
  • Government Buildings
  • Grocery Stores
  • Hotels and Resorts
  • Museums and Aquariums
  • Playgrounds and Parks
  • Private Property
  • Professional Offices
  • Public Areas
  • Restaurants
  • Shopping Malls and Retail Businesses
  • Swimming Pools and Waterparks

One of the most important factors when pursuing a slip and fall accident and injury claim in Louisiana is understanding which party — or the combination of parties — is responsible for your full financial recovery. We can help.

Our skilled slip and fall accident attorneys in Baton Rouge will walk you through the legal requirements to file a claim against the property owner or operator where your injuries occurred, so you know what to expect from our pursuit for justice.

Who is Liable for Slip and Fall Accidents and Injuries in Baton Rouge, Louisiana?

Slip and fall cases typically fall under premises liability statutes in Louisiana. In short, this means every property owner has a duty to keep his or her premises reasonably safe, including warning visitors of known hazards and promptly repairing them.

Slip and fall accident and injury claims can be pursued against negligent private, public, and government property owners throughout Louisiana when we can prove:

  • The property owner knew or should have known about the hazardous condition.
  • The property owner failed to properly address the dangerous condition.
  • The injury victim had no reason to know about the hazard and was using ordinary care when the incident occurred.
  • The victim suffered an injury because of the property owner’s negligence, which led to damages like medical bills, lost wages, diminished earning capacity, emotional and psychological trauma, pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, and eligible out-of-pocket expenses.

The Louisiana statute of limitations on slip and fall accidents and other premises liability lawsuits is generally one year from the date the incident and injuries occurred.

However, if your slip and fall incident occurred on property owned or operated by a government agency or municipality, the timeline is much shorter and requires immediate attention.

If you have been injured in a slip and fall in Louisiana, contact our experienced personal injury attorneys in Baton Rouge right away, so we can begin preserving important evidence to help build your case for success.
