Louisiana residents entering the property of another are entitled to certain protections from dangerous conditions that may exist on the property. These protections are extended to those entering residential property, as well as commercial property. Therefore, both businesses and homeowners have a duty to prevent or correct hazardous conditions that may exist on their property.
The duty of care imposed upon a property owner is typically contingent on the status of the person entering their property. Those that are invited to enter property or rightfully entering a business open to the public are entitled to an increased level of safety relative to an individual that unlawfully trespasses on the property of another. Typically, the owner or caretaker of property has liability for any dangerous conditions that they knew of or should have known about and chose to not correct or failed to properly maintain.
The types of injuries for which a negligent property owner is typically liable include slip and fall accidents due to ice or unsafe flooring, falling objects, and an improper level of security for visitors.
