A Slip and fall is a common injury suffered by many people in Louisiana. Most people have tripped or slipped and fallen at some point. Usually, the fall is shaken off and there is little or no injury. Other times, the fall can be more problematic, leading to injuries that require medical attention, physical therapy, and in the worst cases, partial or permanent disability. Regardless of the severity, many people are entitled to compensation, and a New Orleans slip and fall lawyer at the Smiley Law Firm can help.
Many people do not want to make a claim or file a lawsuit because they are scared away by the complexity of the legal system, or they have a prior relationship with person or business where the fall happened.
