While most people may not realize it, they are on another’s property often many times throughout the day. Whether in a retail store, a friend’s house or at a public event, there is always the risk of being injured on another person’s property. When this unfortunate situation arises, the injured party is typically not only hurt but also confused and frustrated. A New Orleans premises liability attorney can be a huge help during the bewildering time following an accident.
Premises liability attorneys are often associated with slip-and-fall accidents, but in reality premises liability encompasses a wide array of legal issues. A lack of repair that leaves a visitor with injuries can quickly become a premises liability case. A premises liability claim can be based on any of a number of repair and maintenance issues such as unstable flooring, loose hand railings on a stairway, or inadequate lighting. In any event, it can be highly reassuring to have the knowledge and confidence of an experienced premises liability advocate.
