Understanding Premises Liability in Louisiana


In personal injury law, a premises liability case involves the area of law that covers a property owner’s responsibility for injuries that occur on their property. Property owners are responsible for the upkeep of their property, and they must – by law – keep their property free from certain dangerous conditions. These types of cases can occur anywhere – a business, home, apartment complex, mall, playground, mall, grocery store, department store, parking lot and many other places.

In every premises liability case, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant was negligent in preventing, maintaining or warning about a certain condition that existed on the defendant’s property. Common premises liability cases often involve railing and balcony accidents, swimming pool accidents and drowning, amusement park accidents, falling objects, negligent security, construction site accidents, apartment complex injuries and slip, trips and falls.
