Ladder falls can create several kinds of liability

Ladder falls are a very common way that individuals can suffer very serious injuries. However, in many cases where private citizens slip and fall on ladders, determining who may hold legal liability (and more specifically what party may actually be able to pay for damages) can be very difficult. Often, a ladder fall may not qualify as a premises liability suit, and if it does, the suit may be against the estate of an individual, rather than against the individual's insurer. Of course, each case is different, and it is always wise to consult with an experienced attorney who understands the specific laws of Louisiana before moving forward.

Can I file a wrongful death suit for an unemployed person?

When a person you love is killed before his or her time, a wrongful death suit is often appropriate. However, despite the immense loss of the one you love, it may be difficult to understand how a wrongful death may proceed if the person who was killed never held a job. Wrongful death suits primarily reward survivors some monetary approximation of income lost because of the death, but a person who did not provide income still has value.

Appeals court rules in favor of victim's children

The fourth circuit court of appeals, which covers Louisiana, recently rejected a motion to reduce damages awarded to the survivors of a man killed by a collapsing wall. The court chose to uphold the lower court's decision, moving forward with the nearly $1 million award to the children of the man killed in the accident.
