Products & Premises
Products and premises liability practice involves a myriad of state and federal laws and regulations. Our attorneys have experience working within this complex legal framework to defend products and premises liability claims in a variety of industries.
The following cases are representative of our record of success in products and premises liability litigation:
- French Quarter trip-and-fall action: Our attorneys obtained a defense jury verdict in a case filed against Pat O’Brien’s bar in Orleans Parish. The case involved a plaintiff who took a misstep while exiting one of the bars flanking the carriageway of the historic building housing Pat O’Brien’s, and stumbled and struck a brick wall across the carriageway sustaining injuries.
- Antique elevator case: Plaintiff voluntarily dismissed her case after our attorneys filed a motion for summary judgment in the case. She claimed that our insured was responsible for injuries she sustained after she stepped into an empty elevator shaft on the insured’s premises. Our motion for summary judgment proved that plaintiff was intimately familiar with the operation of the antique elevator and was responsible for her own injuries.
- Leaking ice machine case: We secured a dismissal on summary judgment for our client in a case involving a leaking ice machine. Plaintiff attempted to repair the machine and in the process was hit on the head with the front panel, after which she claimed extensive injuries.
