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.
When patrons of stores in Louisiana and other states across the country shop they expect that the conditions will be safe and that they will not be injured as they complete the purpose of their trip. If someone is injured on another person's property they may be entitled to compensation. A woman who was recently injured at a Sam's Club store in Louisiana has sued the massive retailer for her injuries.
