Commercial General Liability

Litigation can often be highly specialized, but the great majority of cases that enter the judicial system are general liability matters. Car accidents, slip-and-falls and workers’ compensation claims constitute the lion’s share of disputed litigation across the country, and our decades of experience in the field have provided us with the know-how needed to properly defend these matters at the administrative, state court and federal court levels.

Louisiana law contains an age-old general negligence principle, that “Every act whatever of man that causes damage to another obliges him by whose fault it happened to repair it.” That law is the basis for all negligence claims that arise in Louisiana. However, numerous subsequent laws have altered the playing field depending on the type of liability at issue. Our mastery of those laws makes us the ideal fit for the defense of general liability claims of all kinds.

Moreover, our familiarity with the common bodily injuries associated with such claims allows us to defend not only the liability aspects of these claims, but also the damages portion. Knowledge of the local treating physicians and their method of care is important in order to guard against efforts to prolong injuries unjustly. We have gathered that knowledge over many hard-fought claims during nearly 30 years of practice. If you have the need for legal services related to your general liability claim, please contact us so that we may assist you.
