Are you wondering if you have a good or winnable slip and fall case?
In order to win a slip and fall case your attorney will have to prove two main things: liability and damages.
Liability is the legal term for proving that someone was at fault and therefore responsible. In a slip and fall case in Louisiana there are many things you have to prove in order to establish liability. One of the most often litigated issues is whether the defendant had notice. That is, you must prove that the defendant in your case either created the dangerous condition or that they knew or should have known of the dangerous condition.

Slip And Fall Injuries in New Orleans
In a New Orleans slip and fall case successfully resolved by The Glorioso Law Firm, a very nice lady was entering her place of employment in New Orleans East. As she was walking through the doorway she slipped and fell breaking her hip which required surgery. After investigating the cause of the fall and taking multiple depositions, The Glorioso Law Firm was able to prove that the building owner’s cleaning company was liable for negligence in allowing an unreasonable wax build up on the inside of the building at the entrance where the plaintiff fell. “Notice” was shown by proving that the cleaning companies inspection policy was violated and that if the policy would have followed the accident would not have occurred. After setting the case for a jury trial, we began serious settlement discussions and negotiations. Before a jury was selected, we were able to get this nice lady’s slip and fall case settled for $400,000.
