Premises Liability Injuries

Our personal injury lawyers can investigate claims against stores, malls, bars, restaurants, hotels, apartment buildings and other commercial properties, as well as municipalities and homeowners. Premises liability can refer to any dangerous conditions that caused or allowed injury such as:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents from spills or tripping hazards
  • Falling merchandise or sharp protrusions
  • Poor lighting in a parking lot or stairwell
  • Building code violations (stair treads, railings)
  • Fire code violations (nonworking smoke alarms, blocked exits)
  • Construction during business hours
  • Actions of bouncers or security guards
  • Broken locks, open windows or other security breaches
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Dog bites (on or off the owner’s property)

Premises liability requires evidence of serious injuries such as a bone fracture, neck injury or scarring. If you fell and injured nothing but your pride, there is no claim. However, if you were assaulted or otherwise traumatized, you may be entitled to compensation for emotional distress in addition to any physical injuries.

We Provide Prompt and Thorough Investigation

Our experienced New Orleans premises liability lawyers are skilled at uncovering a property owner’s carelessness or disregard for safety. To collect damages, we must show that there was a dangerous condition and that the owner or manager of the property had an opportunity to correct it or warn visitors. Did the owner create the hazard or ignore complaints? Did the owner fail to provide adequate security or supervision? Would the dangerous condition have been discovered through regular upkeep or inspection?

It is important to contact our injury attorneys as soon as possible. We take quick action to talk to witnesses and to preserve evidence before the property owner covers up the problem. We research prior complaints, code violations or lawsuits against the property owner to see if there is a pattern of disregard for safety. We also work closely with clients and medical professionals to document claims for damages, and we will stand up to property owners and their insurance companies to get the compensation you deserve.
