Firm seeking to impose liability on negligent property owners

On Behalf of | Mar 23, 2017 | Firm News, Premises Liability |

There are a number of daily activities that shouldn’t pose a danger to Louisianans. Driving to and from work, going to the grocery store and crossing the street should all be relatively safe activities. Yet, far too often the negligence of another leaves unsuspecting and innocent individuals seriously harmed. This is unfair and unacceptable to those who were undeservedly hurt. These victims, who may be facing the reality of financial hardship and physical pain and suffering, should consider whether taking legal action against the negligent party who harmed them will help them get back on their feet.

For those who have been injured in a slip-and-fall accident, this may mean pursuing a premises liability lawsuit. Property owners owe their customers a duty to maintain safe premises. This means mopping up spilled products and fixing damaged flooring, but it also means providing adequate warning to customers when a hazardous condition exists. When property owners fail to remedy dangerous property conditions, or fail to recognize that they exist within a reasonable period of time, and injuries result, then compensation may be recoverable.

Pursuing these types of claims can raise all sorts of legal challenges, which is why the legal team at Tauzin & Lorio Attorneys at Law diligently work to ensure their clients’ cases are thoroughly analyzed and prepared before moving forward. Our attorneys, who have years of premises liability experience, know common defenses to such claims and how to best attempt to circumvent them. Once a legal strategy is identified, we gather evidence and witnesses to support it. Additionally, we know the trial rules and the rules of evidence, which means we stand ready to challenge evidence offered by the other side.

The outcome of a premises liability lawsuit could mean the difference between financial hardship and financial stability. We recognize what is at stake in these claims, and treat every claim as if it were our own. Our firm believes its track record of success is strong, and we therefore encourage those who have been injured due to dangerous property condition to consider whether legal representation from legal advocates like us is right for them.
