Property owners are responsible for ensuring that their spaces are safe. If a property owner's negligence caused your injury, you may be entitled to personal injury compensation.
Were You Injured On Someone Else's Property?
If you were injured in an accident caused by property owner negligence, the attorneys at Thompson, d'Entremont & Hebert, LLC, are prepared to take action on your behalf. From our law office in Baton Rouge, we handle premises liability cases throughout Louisiana.
Premises liability encompasses a broad range of injuries. Property owners are responsible for preventing mishaps such as:
- Slip-and-fall accidents/trip and fall. Spills, debris, improperly constructed steps, drop-offs and other hazards can lead to slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall injuries. Property owners who do not take care to ensure that their floors are clear of potential hazards can face legal action brought by people who sustained injuries on their property.
- Injuries caused by inadequate lighting. Stairwells, parking garages, entryways and other areas should have proper lighting. Inadequate lighting leads to injury when a person trips and falls or is assaulted by a stranger hiding in the shadows. Property owners must take steps to prevent these scenarios by installing adequate lights or they may face action for negligence.
- Injuries caused by inadequate security. Just as inadequate lighting can lead to assault, inadequate security can make a property very attractive to would-be criminals. If lax or nonexistent security was a factor in your assault, you have the right to pursue compensation from the owner of the property where you were attacked.
- Dog attacks. Dog owners are responsible for training and supervising their pets. Under the law, you have the right to hold a negligent dog owner accountable when his or her dog causes you serious injuries.
Personal injury compensation can aid in your recovery by ensuring that you have access to the medical care that you need and replacing the wages you lose while you are unable to work. However, recovering the full amount that you deserve is often impossible without help from a lawyer. Insurance companies have teams of lawyers to defend them. Thompson, d'Entremont & Hebert, LLC, is known for handling complex cases — the other side knows that we will fight for justice for our clients.
