Hotel Accidents

Hotel accidents are a frequent occurrence, ranging from defects in or on the hotel premises that cause you to trip and fall to food poisoning, illness, or other types of injuries. If the hotel did not take reasonable steps to protect your safety, then it may be liable for your personal injury. At Hammond Law Firm, LLC our goal is to get you fully compensated for your damages.

Cruise Ship Accidents

Most cruise ship liners invest a lot of time and money into making sure their ships are safe and seaworthy. Unfortunately, accidents still happen on cruise ships all the time. Whether passengers tend to be less careful with their actions while onboard or whether cruise liners fail to quickly incorporate safety improvements, hundreds of cruise ship injuries occur every year. Cruise liners also have the tendency to try every trick in the book to avoid compensating injured passengers. Our lawyers at Hammond Law Firm, LLC have a thorough understanding of Louisiana, Federal, and Maritime law and we are qualified to help you get compensated for your loss.

Restaurant Injuries and Accidents

Like any other establishment that provides a service, restaurants have a duty of care with regards to the safety of their customers. Spilled liquids, spoiled food, broken glass, and other hazardous elements and conditions should be corrected by restaurant management before an accident occurs. Restaurant injuries are often caused by poorly lit stairs, lack of proper railing on stairs, food spilled on the floor, and food poisoning. Hammond Law Firm urges you to contact our lawyers to investigate and analyze whether the restaurant took proper precaution before your injury.
