Covington Premises Liability Attorneys

Louisiana law requires property owners and managers to provide safe conditions for all individuals who use their property or warn them if any hazardous conditions exist. If a party fails to do so and it results in an individual being injured, the injured party may be able to recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and other damages.

These claims fall under the personal injury category known as "premises liability." Examples include:

  • Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents
  • Insufficient security
  • Unsafe sidewalks, parking lots or other public areas
  • Dog bites and other animal attacks
  • Falling debris

Aggressive Advocates In Louisiana Premises Liability Cases

At The Truitt Law Firm, our experienced personal injury lawyers advocate aggressively for plaintiffs or defendants in premises liability cases. Over the years, businesses have become targets for manufactured premises liability lawsuits. A person slips on a wet floor at a grocery store and the immediate response is to sue for damages. Louisiana law states that an injured party must show three elements to win a premises liability lawsuit:

  • A dangerous condition existed that led to an injury
  • The property owner or manager knew or should have known about the condition
  • The property owner or manager took no action to eliminate the dangerous condition

We advocate aggressively for individuals who have legitimate premises liability lawsuits. The fact that these cases have taken a public relations hit because a number of bogus premises liability claims are filed doesn't mean that legitimate cases don't exist.

We will review the facts of your case during a free, no-obligation consultation and provide a straightforward assessment. We maximize the amount that injured parties recover in personal injury cases, oftentimes reaching a settlement without the need to litigate.
