New Orleans Premises Liability Attorney

Helping People Injured on Dangerous Premises

Whether a property is public, commercial or private, the owner or manager is responsible for maintaining it in a reasonably safe condition. Spills in grocery store aisles should be cleaned up promptly; hazardous sidewalks should be repaired; swimming pools should be properly supervised; adequate security should be provided in apartment buildings, office complexes, parking lots and stairwells.

If you or a loved one was injured because of the failure to maintain safe and secure premises, you may be entitled to compensation through a premises liability claim.

At James L. Arruebarrena, L.L.C., we assist clients with all types of premises liability claims:

  • Sexual assault stemming from inadequate security
  • Dog bite injuries
  • Trip-and-fall/slip-and-fall accidents
  • Child drowns in a swimming pool because the gate was not locked
  • Brain injury due to the failure to post "no diving" signs
  • Someone falls in an unmarked excavation at a construction site

New Orleans premises liability lawyer James L Arruebarrena has been recovering compensation for our clients since 1993. He is able to call on top experts and professionals to present compelling cases in Louisiana state and federal courts. He is able to analyze the facts of the case and convince an insurance company to offer the full and fair compensation our clients deserve. Contact our personal injury firm today to discuss your premises liability claim.

Dog Bite Injuries

Dog bites are generally covered under the same homeowners or business liability insurance policies that cover slip-and-fall and other premises-related claims. If a dog bit you or your child, the owner or handler is responsible for the injury.

Work-Related Slip-and-Fall Accidents

If your accident was work-related, there may be a slip-and-fall or other premises liability claim in addition to workers' compensation. Did an outside contractor fail to put up signs warning of a slippery floor? Did the general contractor on the site where you worked as a sub-contractor fail to provide rails around dangerous walkways, leading to your fall and back injury?
