Premises Liability

Premises liability is a complex area of personal injury law that holds property owners (or those managing or occupying the property) accountable for certain injuries suffered on the premises. A landowner or occupant is legally obligated to exercise care and to warn people of any hazards that could foreseeably result in harm. When this party fails to provide a safe environment and another person is injured, then the owner or responsible party may be held liable for the victim's injuries. Premises liability applies to homeowners, businesses, even owners of vacant or abandoned lots. A successful premises liability claim may lead to recovery of medical expenses, lost wages, and rehabilitation costs, as well as compensation for diminished earning capacity and pain and suffering.

Your slip and fall accident and premises liability lawyer must demonstrate:

  1. That the property owner or party responsible for managing the grounds knew or should have known of the dangerous condition;
  2. That party failed to either make the condition safe or to warn persons of any potential risks; and
  3. The victim did not have reason to know of the dangerous condition and suffered injury as a result.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accident cases typically fall under the broader category of premises liability because these injuries generally occur on the property of another party. These injuries can occur at work or on commercial, residential, or governmental property.

Successfully litigating a slip and fall accident claim typically requires the assistance of an experienced premises liability lawyer. Your attorney must demonstrate that the property owner or manager failed to take the proper precautions to ensure that slipping or tripping was unlikely. Additionally, your slip and fall accident lawyer must show that you, the victim, exercised reasonable care and that your own negligence was not the cause of the slip and fall accident. Therefore, to establish liability in a slip and fall accident lawsuit, our lawyers must show that:

  1. The property owner or manager created the condition;
  2. The property owner or manager knew or should have known the condition existed;
  3. The property owner or manager failed to correct the condition or adequately warn others; and
  4. As a result, the victim suffered a personal injury.

At The Young Firm, each New Orleans, Louisiana-area slip and fall accident and premises liability lawyer has the talent and experience to help victims obtain fair compensation for their injuries.
