Louisiana Premises Liability Lawyers

Helping Injured Victims Throughout the State of Louisiana. $1 Billion Won.

Typically, injuries that happen on someone else’s property can be avoided with proper care and attention. In Louisiana, the law requires property owners to make their premises safe for residents and visitors. This includes addressing potential trip hazards, ensuring all active risks are clearly marked, and practicing regular maintenance. These incidents—whether they happen in an office building, a shopping mall, or an apartment complex—frequently result from the owner’s negligence or failure to exercise due care.

Neglect makes property owners liable for any accidents resulting from their lack of care. If you were hurt on someone else’s property, you might have a viable premises liability claim against the owner. Our job at Clayton, Frugé & Ward is to ensure that the people or company that wronged you are held accountable for everything you’ve lost or suffered from—wages, medical bills, quality of life, and more. We’ve taken the same approach with plaintiffs in some of the biggest cases in Louisiana, and we’ve won more than $1 billion as a result.

What Is Premises Liability?

Premises liability law makes property owners responsible for mitigating hazardous conditions on their property; they're also legally and financially responsible for accidents that occur on the premises. However, that doesn't make them flatly responsible across the board. The extent to which a property owner is liable depends on a few factors: if they knew or should have known about the hazard, if they knew or should have known to expect visitors, and if the plaintiff was exhibiting reasonable care for their own safety at the time. 

Common types of premises liability claims include:

  • Slip and fall
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Dog bites/animal attacks
  • Assault due to lack of security

Louisiana is a comparative negligence state, which means any plaintiff has the right to claim compensation in proportion to how much they contributed to their own injuries. In other words, even if a plaintiff is partially at fault for their own injuries, they may still be able to recover some of what they're owed. For premises liability claims, where an accident's contributing factors might include the defendant and the plaintiff, that's vital to know. 

More importantly, it means even if you think there's no chance your case is viable, you might still have hope of winning. You owe to yourself to know for sure—that's why you need to call the Louisiana premises liability lawyers at Clayton, Frugé & Ward.
