Long Term Disability / Life /
Accidental Death / ERISA

Our past years of representing insurance companies taught us a thing or two about how they work behind the scenes. Let our experience work for you.

Determining Fault in a Louisiana Slip and Fall Accident

There is no exact science when determining fault in slip and fall accidents. Basically, every property owner should be aware, and take care of, any dangers on their premises. Likewise, when using somebody else’s property, you should not take any unreasonable risks that could cause Louisiana slip and fall accidents.


We answer any questions
you have FREE OF CHARGE.

Why I Love Our Mission Of
Helping People Like You…

Too much is at stake to guess about the best approach and strategy for fighting your denied insurance claim — years and years of financial security.

After spending years representing insurance companies, we don’t guess. We know their playbook and how they work behind the scenes. Using that knowledge, we’ve developed our own Clear Advantage Process for fighting claims.

It’s personally satisfying to use what I’ve learned as an insurance company insider, now for the good — helping families reverse unfair denials of insurance benefits they paid for, need and deserve.

To avoid slip and fall accidents, property owners are responsible for:

  • Being aware of spills on floors or tears in carpeting
  • Cleaning spills
  • Maintaining a consistent cleaning schedule
  • Maintaining a repair schedule
  • Removing stray items from pathways
  • Installing signs or barriers (if possible) for floor hazards
  • Installing adequate lighting
  • Repairing broken lighting

If the property owner neglected to uphold one or more of these responsibilities, you may have a good case for seeking damages related to your slip and fall injury. This is particularly true if you suffered a severe injury, like a head or spine injury.

Actions During Louisiana Slip and Fall Accidents

Consider the events surrounding your accident. Once you file your claim, an insurance adjuster will ask you to review your behavior prior to and during the accident. If you participated in one or more of these activities, they may think the burden of guilt for slip and fall accidents lies more heavily on you:

  • Illegitimate reason for being in the area (i.e. trespassing on private property)
  • Unanticipated (by the property owner) occupation of area
  • Carelessness
  • Disregard of warning signs or barriers
  • Engaged in distracting activities—running, jumping, roughhousing

The courts will consider what a “reasonable” person would have done in both positions. As previously stated, you and your Louisiana personal injury attorney will have to prove that the owner was blatantly negligent in their control of their property. If you took part in one of the activities listed above, the plaintiff may argue that you caused your own slip and fall accident due to your behavior. This is where the right Louisiana personal injury attorney can help make or break your case.
