Property owners are required by law to ensure that their properties are safe for their employees, customers, or guests. If hazardous conditions result in personal injury, then property owners can be held liable for their negligence under premises liability law. The injury attorneys at our practice serving New Orleans, Metairie, and Kenner are skilled at protecting victims’ rights in these instances. As a premises liability attorney serving New Orleans and the greater area, we can help ensure you receive compensation for the medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Causes of Premises Liability Injuries
Premises liability injuries are caused by a number of different conditions that make properties unsafe. Inclement weather, such as ice, snow, or rain, can cause slip and fall accidents to occur. Other accidents can take place as a result of poor lighting, uneven flooring, or foreign objects on the ground. Dog bites, swimming pool accidents, and exposure to toxic fumes also often fall under the jurisdiction of premises liability law.
In other instances buildings may catch on fire or defective products or machines on the property may injure the victim. If an accident occurs on a job site or construction site, then employees may be entitled to receive additional compensation under their workplace rights. To discuss the cause of your accident with one of our premises liability attorneys, contact the law firm of Harrell & Nowak today. Our lawyers will gather photographs, evidence, and witness testimonies to build a strong case and prove that the property owners were at fault for your injuries due to their negligence to ensure that their premises were safe.
Types of Premises Liability Injuries
In many cases, premises liability claims are filed over injuries that are serious but usually not life-altering, such as broken bones and lacerations. In other instances, however, premises liability lawsuits are filed when victims suffer catastrophic injuries such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and second or third-degreeburn injuries. These types of injuries can damage an individual’s mobility, cognitive thinking, or physical appearance forever. If you or a loved one has suffered from one of these types of injuries, our premises liability lawyers will fight so that you receive the maximum possible compensation for your medical expenses, treatment costs, and pain and suffering.
