Pursuing Financial Compensation and Recoverable Damages
With one of our lawyers working on your case, they will assess your injuries and other losses to determine your eligibility for financial compensation. Many victims may be entitled to monetary awards that seek to reduce the financial losses of a premises liability accident. Some potential forms of financial compensation that you may be entitled to recover include coverage of the following losses:
- Psychological and emotional harm
- Lost income
- Past and future medical expenses
- Loss of the ability to enjoy life
- Prescription medications
- Physical therapy programs
- Rehabilitation programs and services
- In-home care

A Gretna premises liability lawyer from Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers will put up a defense on your behalf after an accident involving premises liability. Our team is here to fight for any forms of financial compensation that you may be owed for your losses. We will gather evidence to establish a liability party and hold them responsible for their negligence, recklessness, or misconduct.
The Statute of Limitations In a Premises Liability Accident Case
Some state, local, and federal laws can affect your ability to take legal action after an accident ending in a personal injury. For example, the statute of limitations in CC §3492 gives victims up to one year after an accident to take legal action. Failing to get a case in motion within this window will leave you with no options for moving forward.
Lawyers who focus on these kinds of cases will help you, but you must be sure to contact them within any statute of limitations that govern your particular situation.
Why You Should Consider Hiring an Attorney
Once you have one of our lawyers working on your case, they will begin to build your case by collecting relevant pieces of evidence. In premises liability cases, your lawyer will often collect the following forms of evidence:
- Surveillance camera footage
- Maintenance reports and documents
- Photographs from the scene of the accident
- Witness reports
- Police reports
From here, your lawyer will work on identifying a liable party and holding them accountable for their negligence or misconduct. In most cases, property owners will have their insurance carriers handle any premises liability cases that are presented to them.
A Lawyer Can Handle the Insurance Companies
If you do not have a legal professional on your side, then you may have to speak with insurance agents and other parties alone. These discussions can be troubling for a variety of reasons, as insurance companies often aim to reject a claim in any way they can.
However, when you have one of our lawyers handling your case, they will take care of all communications with insurance companies and property owners. Your lawyer will also speak with witnesses as necessary. If law enforcement or other parties get involved in your case, your lawyer will handle correspondence with them on your behalf as well.
