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.

What young kid doesn't love to play soldier or cowboy? Children in the United States have been doing it since Revolutionary War times ? the only thing that's changed are the costumes and the guns. In fact, the guns have changed too much.
