Slip-and-fall lawsuits, or trip-and-fall lawsuits, are included in a category of law known as premises liability. When a victim is injured on defective or dangerous property, they may be entitled to premises liability compensation.
Essentially, landowners or custodians have a duty to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition. For instance, merchants must exercise reasonable care to maintain aisles, passageways, and floors in a reasonably safe condition. Landowners or custodians must either correct unreasonably dangerous conditions, or they must warn potential victims about the existence of the condition.
In Louisiana, the plaintiff in a slip-and-fall lawsuit must satisfy specific statutory requirements. Failure to satisfy these requirements will destroy a lawsuit. Accordingly, it is important to contact an attorney to navigate the pitfalls of slip-and-fall lawsuits.
