Understanding How Premises Liability Injuries Occur in Monroe
A premises liability accident can occur at almost any location. These cases are built on the concept that a landowner, occupier, or lessee has a duty to keep their property free from unreasonable hazards. They must regularly survey their property for undue risks and remedy them as soon as possible.
For example, imagine there is a spill at a local restaurant. The restaurant owner or manager or employee tasked with the job must:
- Notice the spill
- Clean the spill properly
- Act quickly before someone gets hurt
If the spill remains longer than it should take a staff member to notice and clean it up, this may be considered negligence. The restaurant operator may be responsible, and the injured victim may have a viable claim based on their liability insurance coverage.
Premises liability incidents may occur:
- At a private residence
- On other private property
- At a restaurant, bar, or pub
- At a store
- In a shop
- In another building or business
- In a parking lot
- At a hotel
Examples of premises liability accidents include:
- Slips and falls
- Trips and falls
- Falls from a height
- Drownings and other pool injuries
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Chemical burns
- Dog bites

Are There Deadlines for Filing a Claim or Lawsuit in a Monroe Injury Case?
There are statutes of limitations that create a deadline for beginning a personal injury lawsuit in a premises liability case. Under La. Civ. Code Art. 3492, you likely have only one year to file the paperwork to start your personal injury civil suit. There is also a one-year time limit on most wrongful death claims, per the state’s wrongful death law.
The circumstances of your accident and injuries could alter the timeline for taking action in your case. Not everyone has a full year to act, and some people may have longer than a year.
We recommend letting us evaluate your case as soon as possible to ensure you know the applicable deadline before making any decisions about moving forward.
