Lafayette, LA Premises Liability Lawyer

Recommended by Numerous Across Louisiana: (337) 660-2699

Property owners owe their customers, patrons, and guests a duty of care, which includes maintaining the safety of the premises and facilities, and providing adequate warning of any dangerous conditions. If a property owner failed to uphold either of their responsibilities, they can be held responsible for any injuries that result from their negligence, but only if you are willing to stand up for your rights and create the lawsuit.

Examples of premises liability lawsuits include:

  • Slip and fall incidents
  • Dog bites and animal attacks
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Assault due to inadequate security
  • Lack of facility maintenance

If you have been injured on another party's property, whether it is a shopping mall, amusement park, residential complex, or home, consult with a premises liability attorney about filing a claim. Our Lafayette, Louisiana personal injury lawyer at Duck Law Firm, LLC can look into your matter and help you take action to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other costs and losses associated with your injuries.

Proving Liability in Your Accident on Another’s Property

The root of your premises liability accident might be clear to you but will it be seen the same way by anyone else? You can be fairly certain that the property controller will not be happy to learn that you have been hurt on their grounds, and that you believe they are the one who should be held ultimately liable. If you do not retain an injury lawyer who can investigate your claim thoroughly and construct solid evidence to use in your favor, you might be fighting an uphill battle as the property owner challenges everything you say or do.

To increase the validity of your premises liability case, you should:

  1. Get medical attention: First and foremost, you must ensure that you are safe and sound after being in an accident while visiting someone’s property as a guest or patron. You may feel only minor soreness or aches immediately and think nothing of it, but it could be indicative of an underlying and worsening injury. Always allow your physician to see you as soon as possible. This takes care of your health and provides you with a medical record to use as evidence in your case.
  2. Speak to witnesses: If you get hurt in a public place, such as a retail store, it is unlikely that no one else was around to see what happened. Talk to as many people as you can who may have seen your accident. If you or they do not have the time to give a full dissertation now, request their contact information so you can talk to them later. The sooner you learn their stories, the better, though, as the details will be fresh in their minds.
  3. Check for cameras: There are also closed-circuit security cameras in just about every place you enter these days. The mall, a museum, or an amusement park all probably have mechanical eyes in problem areas. See if you can get a copy of any footage fast, before someone gets the illegitimate idea of tampering or destroying what was recorded.
