Legal Answers
Q. If I slipped and fell coming out of a shower at a hotel do I have a personal injury suit? I
A: Presuming your accident happened in Louisiana, we only take slip and fall cases where there is surgery and long-term residual problems. This is because Louisiana law makes it very difficult to succeed in winning these cases. The question here is what made the floor so slick that your wet feet slipped out from under you. The answer is going to be found by using an expert who can gauge the friction of the surface that you fell on. The floor should probably have had some antiskid agent associated with it. But the real problem is how much of the fall will be attributed to you in failing to take the necessary precautions when exiting a shower with wet feet. In Louisiana the owner of the property must have some notice of the hazardous condition before the event actually occurs. This would mean some other guest should have reported the slick condition to the property owner at some point in time before you fell. That is the burden that the Louisiana legislature puts on victims of slip and fall cases that occur at retail premises. Because of the high degree of burden of proof in these situations that is why we Only take cases where surgery is involved. That way there would be much greater exposure of a big judgment against the hotel owner. Hopefully I've answered your question. Good luck in obtaining a satisfactory result.
