Lafayette Premises Liability Lawyer

Premises liability cases arise when,  someone is injured on someone else’s  property due to its hazardous conditions and the property owner’s negligence. Local, state, and federal laws place duties on property owners to assure that their properties remain in a reasonable safe condition and to warn others of any potential hazards in relation to their property. 

Accidents and injuries occur when property owners do not maintain their properties or fail to warn visitors of its unsafe conditions.

In Lake Charles, trips and falls can even occur on public sidewalks and walkways. 

Common premises liability accidents in Lake Charles include your typical slip and fall accidents, restaurant and hotel accidents, swimming pool accidents, negligent security, dog bites, as well as accidents at public parks and apartment complexes.

Hotel Premises Liability

How Can Hotels be Liable For Your Accident?

Hotels often consist of lots of people, many floors, recreation areas, and multiple levels of staff. Hotel accidents can happen anywhere. Hotel accidents may be the result of some unsafe condition on the property or the error and/or carelessness of a hotel employee. In order to have a successful personal injury case, you or your loved one will need to be able to prove that the injured party was harmed by someone’s negligence. If you were injured due to a hotel’s negligence or failure to upkeep a property, you can make a claim against the property owner and their insurance. Many of these claims will require using expert engineers, appraisers, or other construction experts to prove negligence. Due to the complexities of demonstrating a hotel’s negligence, proving these claims requires an experienced personal injury attorney

This standard comes from premises liability law, which usually governs this type of case.
