A Premises Liability Lawyer Can Hold Property Owners Accountable
When we go out in public, we expect that the floors we walk on will be suitable and safe to use. This means any spills will be cleaned up quickly or appropriate warning signs will be set up. If there are large cracks in the sidewalk or potholes in the parking lot, they will be marked and then fixed promptly. When property owners fail to properly maintain their property, innocent parties may slip and fall or suffer from other injuries. If you were injured on another person’s poorly maintained property, a New Orleans premises liability attorney can help you hold that party accountable.
At The Law Office of Alan Kansas, L.L.C., I work with individuals on the West Bank, in New Orleans, Metairie, and throughout Louisiana to prove liability in premises liability cases. With more than 15 years of experience helping clients work through the legal system, I know how important it is to understand how the law and court procedures apply to your situation. I can help you investigate and assess the strengths and weaknesses of your case so that you can make the best decisions about seeking compensation for your injuries.
Proving Liability in Slip and Fall Cases
Whether you suffered from a sidewalk injury or got hurt in a store, one of the most important parts of a case is determining what caused the accident. Just because you slipped on orange juice in the grocery store, that does not automatically mean the store owner is at fault. I have a good understanding of what types of evidence are useful and available in premises liability cases.
I work with individuals to prove that there was not appropriate monitoring, and that the owner or merchant had knowledge of the unsafe situation but failed to take the appropriate steps to fix it. In most cases, the more time that goes by, the harder it becomes to find this type of evidence. That is why you need to consult with an attorney who will aggressively investigate your case right from the start.
Contact an Experienced Louisiana Slip-and-Fall Accident Attorney
After a slip-and-fall accident, it is important to talk with other people who witnessed the accident. Unfortunately, the accident victim is usually too busy dealing with injuries to do much of an investigation. Of course, if possible, get contact information for other people who saw you fall or others who also experienced the unsafe condition. Trusted friends or relatives can often help collect this type of information. Also, remember that most stores have video surveillance, and it is helpful to take notice of what cameras might have captured the unsafe condition and your injury. An experienced lawyer can help you determine if you have the information you need for a strong case.
