Premises Liability & Slip-and-Fall Injury Attorneys Serving New Orleans
It is up to property owners to maintain their premises to keep the public safe. When injuries result from neglecting that property, the owner could be held liable. Suffering an injury in this way is a difficult situation to manage on your own. Thankfully, you don’t have to. At AKD Law, we have years of experience with personal injury cases resulting from negligence.
What You Need to Know About Premises Liability
Premises liability is often involved in personal injury cases where injuries have occurred on someone else’s property. However, for a case to involve premises liability, your attorney must prove that negligence was the leading factor of your injury.
What Counts as Negligence?
In a personal injury case involving premises liability, an injury might be caused by neglecting property maintenance or failure to use reasonable care. For example, a store owner who neglects to clear ice from the sidewalk or apply the proper deicer solution, may cause a slip-and-fall injury.
Examples of Premises Liability Cases
There are many examples of premises liability cases involving personal injury. Some of these examples include:
- Slips and falls (e.g., due to spills, ice, snow or another issue)
- Improper maintenance
- Ineffective property security
- Dog or animal bites
- Water leaks, fires or other structural conditions
In Louisiana, the owner of the property is the most likely liable party for damages resulting from these cases. As the injured party, you must prove that a dangerous condition existed, that the property owner was aware or should have been aware and that your injury was a direct result.
