Even though ice and snow in Louisiana are somewhat rare, there are numerous other conditions you encounter every day that could cause a possible slip and fall accident outdoors.
During the day, you probably run some errands and frequently make use of parking lots and sidewalks. Poorly maintained walkways, a lack of required outdoor light, faulty handrails, or a variety of other acts of property neglect can easily lead to outdoor slip and fall accidents.
If you have suffered an injury because of a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property and the owner is guilty of poor property maintenance, you may want to pursue a Louisiana personal injury lawsuit. Be aware that there is a statute of limitations on premises liability cases so you will want to contact a Louisiana personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your accident.
Please remember that there are risks when engaging in certain activities. Each person has a level of responsibility to act reasonably and safely. Your level of personal responsibility will also be considered during your Louisiana premises liability lawsuit and will affect your potential compensation.
That being said, you are entitled to a reasonable level of security when frequenting places of business, which is why you are allowed to file for damages when neglect creates an unsafe situation that leads to injuries.
Often people think of safety from theft as the primary reason for outdoor lighting. Besides this benefit, outdoor lighting helps you to freely navigate your way around a property after dark.
Without adequate outdoor lighting you could possibly trip or fall on:
These hazards are often found in parking lots, which are exposed to a lot of wear and tear. Sidewalks, too, are used every day but may not be checked as part of the daily maintenance for a business.
Public sidewalks are usually owned and maintained by the city, but filing an injury claim against a city or state agency is a very different process than filing a claim against an individual or business. If you had a slip and fall on government property, you can visit our library to learn more about filing a claim against a government entity.
If a business has a sidewalk that is used exclusively by its customers, the business would be liable, not the city. This is because the sidewalk is in the sole care of the private business. See if a Louisiana personal injury lawsuit is applicable by contacting an experienced Louisiana personal injury attorney.
After a serious slip and fall accident, while you are dealing with injuries, medical bills, and insurance companies, it’s important to have someone working on your side.
Speaking with an experienced Louisiana personal injury lawyer after a slip and fall accident can help you understand your legal rights and options, and if necessary, help you file a personal injury lawsuit to help you recover compensation for your losses.
