What does “attractive nuisance” mean to homeowners?

You may have a swimming pool in your yard, as well as a riding lawnmower that you don’t give a second thought to when you’re not using it. This is your personal property, and if anyone sneaks into your yard to swim or play with your power tools, they are trespassing. Why should it be your responsibility to make something on your property safe for people who shouldn’t be there? It is important for you and other Louisiana residents to understand how attractive nuisance laws exist to protect children.

What damages can you recover in a wrongful death suit?

If your loved one dies as the result of someone’s negligence or misconduct in Louisiana, you can sue that person for your loved one’s wrongful death. As FindLaw explains, wrongful death lawsuits are civil suits that usually follow a person’s death after a motor vehicle accident or a medical malpractice situation. They can, however, also arise when a person dies because someone else allegedly murdered or deliberately injured him or her, whether or not a jury finds the alleged perpetrator guilty of the criminal charge.

Tips for Preventing Boat Accidents

As Louisiana lakes begin to fill up with summertime boaters, it is a good idea for families to think about developing a strategy for staying safe on the water. Just like having an emergency plan for evacuating from home if there is a fire or other unexpected danger, having a plan for preventing boat accidents may save lives. 

Who can sue for wrongful death?

When someone you love dies because of the negligence or malicious actions of another person, it only adds to the grief you feel. You may want to find a way to ensure the person who hurt your loved one cannot hurt anyone else. In a case like this, you have rights in Louisiana to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the person. You may also file such a suit against an entity, such as a company.

What is a wrongful death?

If your loved one recently died in Louisiana due to someone’s misconduct or negligence, you may wish to file a wrongful death action against the person responsible. Under Article 2315.2 of the Louisiana statutes, someone dies wrongfully when his or death was someone else’s fault. You may file a wrongful death suit if you are the spouse or child of the decedent or the parent of a deceased child.
