This time of year is, obviously, an extremely festive one in New Orleans and around Louisiana. Along with all of the happiness and revelry, however, will also come some misfortune and injuries. In some cases, the injuries may be a result of insufficient precautions. When that happens, you may be entitled to compensation from those who didn’t take those reasonable precautions. For answers and representation in these and other kinds of injury situations, talk to a skilled Louisiana premises liability lawyer.
A recent case from Terrebonne Parish presents an unfortunate picture of revelry that got out of hand. Albert, a sheriff’s deputy for Terrebonne Parish, accepted a job working security at a pool party put on after Houma Carnival and hosted by one of the parade’s most well-known krewes. At the party, alcohol allegedly flowed freely, which was probably not a surprise to the deputy. However, at one point during the wild party, as a fight broke out, and Albert attempted to intervene and break it up, members of the krewe turned on him and attacked him, according to his complaint. Albert suffered a concussion and other serious injuries, the Houma Times reported.
