Owners or occupiers of property are obligated to protect persons lawfully on their property from injuries caused by dangerous conditions that the owner or occupier was aware of or should have known existed. The situation, however, gets complicated with regard to the classification of the types of people who are on the premises, including invitees, licensees and social guests.

New Orleans Slip-and-Fall Attorney

In addition to determining these legal distinctions and duties, key actions that must usually be taken in slip, trip and fall cases include preserving evidence by obtaining photographs, recording statements of witnesses, and saving physical evidence.

If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of poorly maintained premises, it's important to reach out to a skilled team of lawyers who can put together the pieces of the puzzle and help you move toward the best possible outcome.
