Stand Your Ground and Self-Defense Claims in Louisiana

Louisiana law recognizes the right to self-defense and includes the “Stand Your Ground” provision.

The Stand Your Ground law is a legal principle that grants individuals the right to use reasonable force, including deadly force, to defend themselves without a duty to retreat, even if they are in a public place. Under the Stand Your Ground law, individuals have the legal right to stand their ground and defend themselves, their property, or others from imminent harm or the threat of serious bodily injury or death.

The Stand Your Ground law differs from traditional self-defense laws, which generally require individuals to attempt to retreat or escape from a threatening situation before resorting to the use of force. Stand Your Ground laws remove the duty to retreat, allowing individuals to respond with force, including lethal force, if they reasonably believe it is necessary to protect themselves or others.

If you used a firearm or another weapon in self-defense, our attorneys can help you navigate the complexities of this defense strategy. We will thoroughly investigate the circumstances, gather evidence, interview witnesses, and work to establish that your actions were justified under the law.
