Experienced Personal Injury Trial Lawyer
Randy Slone has practiced in Slidell for more than 40 years, and his demonstrated record of results includes many favorable awards in unsafe premises cases. The law has changed over the years to shift the burden to the injured party, especially in slip-and-fall cases. The classic wet floor in a grocery store does not make a good case without clear evidence that the spill was ignored for an extended period or that maintenance was routinely neglected. You have to show that the owner of the premises failed to correct an open and obvious defect or safety hazard. A lawyer with vision and careful direction at the front end will help you prevail in a claim for damages. The Law Office of Randolph C. Slone has secured compensation in a variety of cases:
- A client caught a foot on a tree root exposed in a McDonald's parking lot, suffering a broken nose and facial injuries in the fall
- A woman fractured her hip tripping on a 1 1/2-inch drop in the concrete walkway outside a hospital
- A client broke his hip when floorboards rotted by hurricane flood damage gave way in his rental home
- Another person suffered serious injuries in a slip-and-fall from an obscured 6-inch step-down on the rear entry of a building
- We have recovered compensation for many victims' dog bites and animal attacks
Negligent security is also grounds for a premises liability claim. Particularly in high-crime areas, owners have a duty to provide and maintain gates, secured entry doors, guards, patrols, adequate lighting, or security cameras. Mr. Slone won damages for a woman victimized by a man who had escaped from a hospital's psychiatric ward. She was abducted in a Walmart parking lot that had no surveillance cameras.
Time is critical in premises liability cases. There often is a short window of opportunity to gather evidence before the owner covers up the problem. Contact the Law Office of Randolph C. Slone immediately to find out if you have a viable claim. We are available 24 hours at 985-643-0314.
