Premises Liability Lawyer Louisiana

Premises Liability Attorney

When there is a premise liability case, the first thing you need to establish is the owner of the premises. The owner could be on lease or an occupant. Premise liability cases may be highly complicated. Therefore, choosing the right lawyer to handle your case is extremely important. Specialist premise liability lawyers are invaluable for victims who have sustained injuries or damage as a result of accident in another person’s property.

Premise liability attorneys Louisiana at the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess are aware of the various elements that go into successfully pursuing a claim.

Our solicitors have the necessary knowledge and experience to successfully bring about a positive resolution to your case. Our attorneys can also advise victims on whether the insurance company’s settlement offer is adequate for all the injuries and damage that has been incurred.

Victims not represented by a solicitor often find that they ultimately settle for a much lesser compensation. Elements for which a victim can file a claim include lost wages, loss of future earnings, pain and suffering, and other medical expenses. Our attorneys will be present at every settlement negotiation and ensure that the plaintiff (victim) is not intimidated by the defendant’s (accused) legal representative.

Practice Areas


Like accident and injury attorneys, premises liability attorneys fall in two categories: defendant’s attorneys and plaintiff’s attorneys. The attorneys at the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess can help you get justice and recover rightful compensation.

Proving Liability


To make sure that your case is in a position to be settled, it’s crucial to prove that the ‘duty of care’ (an obligation the property owner must meet to ensure the safety of visitors) was breached. There are usually three types of visitors:

  • Invitees: Any individual invited to carry out business with the property owner, manager or staff.
  • Licensees: Any individual invited to the property for social purposes such as family, friends, and neighbors.
  • Trespassers: Individuals who enter the domain or private property without any prior invitation from property owners.

When property owners make reasonable efforts to protect visitors from dangers, it can minimize their liability. Property owners cannot be held liable for unfair expectations. There could be instances where both the property owner and the visitor may hold responsibility for the visitor’s injury. Intervention of a trained and knowledgeable lawyer is important to determine how damages will be shared.
