Fighting For Compensation In Your Slip-And-Fall Case
Any person or entity that owns property has a legal responsibility to maintain it and ensure that it is safe. If you have been injured in a slip-, trip-and-fall accident and have questions regarding your rights to compensation, The Law Offices of Tim L. Fields, LLC, can help.
Attorney Tim Fields has handled thousands of lawsuits and has the skills and experience to pursue and win maximum compensation for victims of slip-, trip-and-fall accidents. He has nearly two decades of experience with Louisiana personal injury law. He has a strong record of success for his clients, and he is known as being a strong advocate in and out of the courtroom.
Understanding Slip-And-Fall Cases
If you suffer injuries in a slip-and-fall accident, you need to collect as much evidence as possible about the conditions that were present at the time the incident occurred. The owners of the property where the accident happened will quickly take action in an attempt to conceal their negligent behavior. If you do not have evidence to support your claims, it can be much more difficult for you to prove that these conditions caused your accident.
We have represented numerous individuals for slip-, trip-and-fall accidents occurring in a range of locales, including:
- Parking lots and ramps
- Retail stores, grocery stores, department stores and malls
- Hospitals and other medical facilities
- Apartment buildings, private homes and condominium complexes
We partner with medical professionals to prove damages and injuries, and work with professional safety engineers to identify owner negligence. A client of ours recently slipped on a newly painted staircase. Others had fallen, indicating that the owner had prior knowledge of a safety issue. In another recent case, our client fell through the floor of a rental property due to termite infestation. In both cases, we settled for a high figure.
Common injuries resulting from slip- or trip-and-fall accidents include broken femurs and other leg bones leading to surgery, ruptured skin, bone marrow problems and the need to insert screws and rods. Often, slip-, trip-and-fall injuries are suffered by people who already face mobility issues when handicap accessibility is limited or nonexistent.
