Slip and fall in hospital leads to lawsuit

In July of 2016, a woman was at Tulane University Hospital and Clinic, when she slipped and fell in some standing water on the ground. The woman's injuries were not detailed, but she sued University Healthcare System (which was doing business as Tulane University Hospital and Clinic) for allowing the dangerous condition to exist and for failing to post warning signs that could have alerted people at the hospital to the dangerous condition.

The woman is asking for all reasonable damages to provide relief. Few other details are available about this incident.

What we would like to focus on today is the fact that the hospital failed to alert people to the danger. This, sadly, happens all the time. Restaurants and bars fail to put up a simple yellow warning sign that would give patrons the chance to avoid the dangerous condition. It's such a simple step that businesses fail to perform far too often.

Such negligence is unacceptable, and when someone suffers serious injury as a result of a slip and fall, the injured person should file a personal injury lawsuit to hold the responsible party (or parties) accountable. Having an experienced personal injury attorney to help you during this time is critical too. Slip and fall lawsuits or premises liability lawsuits are far more complicated than they seem on the surface. With experienced legal representation, you can rest assured that you case will be fully investigated and pursued.
