Louisiana premises liability laws require that a property owner provide relatively safe conditions to guests or provide warnings of any unsafe conditions. This means that if a property owner fails to do this and an injury occurs on their property, they may be held liable.

Getting injured on someone else’s property can be serious and devastating. After seeking medical attention, you may be unable to work, which can put you and your family under financial strain. If you suffered a personal injury due to a residential or commercial property owner’s negligence, call Dudley DeBosier Injury Lawyers today.

Proving Negligence in Premises Liability Lawsuits

If you suffer an injury on a residential or commercial property, you should be prepared for the possibility that the property owner will deny responsibility. Building a strong case for a premises liability claim means we need to prove negligence on the part of the property owner. In order to do that, three factors must be true:

  • The condition of the property was dangerous at the time of your visit.
  • The owner knew, or should have known, that the property was in a dangerous condition.
  • The injury was caused by the dangerous condition.

While proving negligence can be challenging, Dudley DeBosier has the knowledge and resources to thoroughly investigate and fight for compensation for your injuries. Get a free case evaluation by filling out our online form or giving us a call 24/7 at (866) 897-8495.

Slip and Fall Injury Statistics

According to Injury Facts, falls account for 33% of all non-fatal injuries in the United States. While most are not serious, some result in death, especially in older adults.

Types of Premises Liability or “Slip and Fall” Injuries

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that 800,000 patients are hospitalized each year because of injuries due to a fall and most are head-related injuries. Brain injuries can be hard to detect at first and may not present symptoms for a while after an accident, so it is important that medical attention is sought immediately.

The majority of property injuries are a result of a “slip and fall,” meaning that a dangerously neglected or defective part of the property caused a fall. This could include broken stairs, wet floors with no signage, loose handrails, falling objects, and several other instances. These falls can cause a variety of injuries ranging from moderate to severe, and some may be permanent.

Common injuries after slip and falls include:

  • Back injuries, some requiring surgery
  • Head injuries, brain trauma
  • Spinal injuries, temporary or permanent paralysis
  • Broken arms, legs, feet, or hands
  • Internal injuries, broken ribs
  • Facial injuries and fractures
