Louisiana Premises Liability


new orleans premises liability lawyer


Is there a condition or activity on land or in a building that caused an injury?  If so, a key question to determine liability is whether the owner or person responsible for the property could have done something differently that would have prevented the injury.

Generally, to prevail on a premises liability case under Louisiana Civil Code Articles 2317, 2322 and/or 660, the plaintiff must prove the owner or occupier of the land owed the plaintiff a duty to exercise reasonable care, defendant breached that duty through action or inaction, defendant’s breach is both the factual and legal cause of plaintiff’s injuries and that plaintiff suffered an injury.
