A Lafayette, Louisiana premises liability case means that if an individual is injured because of unsafe property or building conditions, he or she may have the right legally claim damages from the property owner.

Premises liability laws vary by state; some consider the landowner’s duty to be different, depending on the type of person entering the property: trespasser, licensee or, invitee. Under these regulations, the landowner has less of a duty to protect a trespasser than other types of entrants.

More and more states, however, are doing away with these multiple classfications and instead adopting a flexible, single standard: “reasonableness under the circumstances” of a particular case.
