Premises Liability Cases Handled By Experienced Lafayette Injury Attorneys
When you find yourself injured on someone else’s property, it can be a tricky situation. Premises liability law cases can be hard to attack. That’s why it’s important to meet with an experienced attorney to discuss your options. Whether an unsecured display fell on your foot and broke it, scalding water in a restaurant bathroom sink burned your hand, or a boardwalk collapsed at a beach, you should be entitled to recognition and compensation as a result of their failure to keep their patrons safe. However, if a property owner’s negligence causes you to become injured, it’s important that you contact an experienced injury attorney as soon as possible. Nobody has the right to take you away from the life you love.
At the end of the day, personal injury cases boil down to the concept of negligence. Whether a car hit you because you were texting, a broken hair dryer burned your hand, or a boardwalk collapsed at a beach, you should be entitled to recognition and compensation as a result of their failure to keep their patrons safe. There is a certain amount of care that should be expected on a piece of property. Yet, not all cases will result in compensation because not all cases are the result of a negligent act. For example, if you choose to get drunk and jump off a roller coaster as a way to get more views for your Youtube channel, you probably aren’t entitled to compensation if you break your leg on the way down. No matter when or where the injury occurs on a property, it’s important that you contact an experienced injury attorney as soon as possible. Nobody has the right to take you away from the life you love.
Different Types of Cases
Premises liability cases can take many forms. Whether it’s a public pool or a company barbeque, there are ways to determine if the injury was the result of negligence on the part of the owners or individuals in charge. Typically, the types of cases that fall under the umbrella of premises liability are some combination of the following:
- Swimming pool injuries
- Elevator accidents
- Slip and fall cases
- Poor maintenance of the property resulting in injury
- Animal bites
- Amusement park or water park accidents
- Negligent security
- Poisonous or toxic fumes
There’s really no telling just what type of case will qualify as premises liability until you speak with an injury attorney who has seen this type of case before. Luckily, here at Blase Inzina Injury Attorneys, we’ve spent the last 15 years working cases just like this. If you’ve been injured in any capacity under someone else’s watch, there’s a good chance we can help.
The Liability of the Property Owner
Like much of the country, Louisiana has its own set of laws that determine whether or not an owner is at fault when someone gets harmed on their property. Basically, an owner is responsible for the damages incurred on the property if there was a potentially dangerous condition on the property. What exactly a “dangerous condition” entails can depend, but it falls back under the umbrella of negligence once again. As attorneys, we will need to prove your case against the perpetrator in question. If you were not warned and you were injured, then you likely have a good case. If the owner knew that this problem existed, then that is another important factor in determining their guilt. Owners have a duty to let the general public know of what could go wrong and what will go wrong. If they forfeit that responsibility then it’s only right that they are held accountable.
Most of the time, these cases have to deal with slip or falls, but there are numerous ways to find yourself injured when you venture onto another person’s property. It is also important to distinguish whether or not you were trespassing. If you break into a bank late at night and cut your hand on the front window, you will likely not be entitled to compensation while you sing the jailhouse blues. However, becoming injured when you have a right to be in a place of business or at a person’s home could be a legitimate premises liability case. These types of cases can revolve around broken or wet floors, loose rugs or floor mats, concealed extension cords, broken glass, falling objects, toxic chemicals, defective products, and so much more. Basically, if it hurts you, you may have a case. That’s why it’s important to exercise caution and contact a team of trusted attorneys before settling any amount with the company in question. We will work to get you the compensation you truly deserve.
