Common Types of Premises Liability Cases

A property owner can become liable for the injuries of a visitor or guest on their property if they fail to maintain a safe environment or properly warn visitors of potential hazards. As a visitor or guest on someone else's property, you have the right to expect a safe environment. At the least, you have the right to expect that the property owner or proprietor will make a reasonable attempt to warn you about known hazards and keep you from getting too close to them.

Property owner negligence can put visitors at risk of:

  • Slip and fall accidents: Property owners have the responsibility to maintain safe walking surfaces and promptly clean up spills and debris. If a visitor slips and falls due to a slippery or uneven walking surface or poor lighting, for example, they may have a premises liability claim against the property owner.
  • Inadequate security: Property owners may be responsible for criminal attacks, such as robbery or assault, that occur on their premises if they fail to implement adequate security measures, such as cameras or lighting. Different types of property may have different security expectations.
  • Dangerous conditions: Property owners have the responsibility to repair or warn visitors of potential hazards, such as broken staircases or unstable structures. When an unsafe hazard is known by the property owner, they have a “reasonable” amount of time to address it.
  • Dog bites: Dog owners have the responsibility to restrain their pets to prevent attacks and aggressive behavior. If a visitor is bitten or attacked by a dog on a property, the owner may be held liable.
  • Attractive nuisances: An attractive nuisance is a condition on a property that is likely to attract the attention of children and is likely to cause harm if children engage with it. Examples of an attractive nuisance might include swimming pools, trampolines, unattended and usable construction equipment or power tools, or uncovered wells. Property owners have the responsibility to take reasonable steps to protect children from these hazards, such as building fences, locking gates, or otherwise making the area inaccessible.

Compensation for Premises Liability Claims

Our experienced premises liability attorneys can help you understand your legal rights and options and pursue the compensation you deserve if you have been hurt on someone else’s property in Gonzales, Louisiana.

The two main types of damages that could be available to you are:

  • Economic damages (special damages): Economic damages are the tangible, out-of-pocket expenses that you incur due to the injuries you sustained on someone else's property.
    • Medical expenses: The cost of medical treatment, including emergency room visits, hospital stays, surgeries, rehabilitation, prescription medications, and medical equipment.
    • Lost wages: The income you lost due to missed work or reduced earning capacity resulting from your injuries.
    • Property damage: The cost of repairing or replacing any damaged property as a result of the accident if applicable.
  • Non-economic damages (general damages): Non-economic damages are intangible losses that don't have a direct monetary value but are still important to repay to the claimant so they can be “whole” again.
    • Pain and suffering: The physical and emotional impact of the injuries, including discomfort, pain, anxiety, depression, and loss of enjoyment of life.
    • Emotional distress: The psychological effects of the accident, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and other mental health conditions.
    • Scarring or disfigurement: Any permanent changes to your appearance as a result of the injury.
