Mississippi Premises Liability Attorneys
Upholding Your Rights in & Out of Court
Property owners – both public and private – are expected to keep up their property in order to maintain a certain level of safety. Failure to do so may hold them accountable for any injuries that occur on their property.
If you were injured on someone else’s property due to the owner’s negligence or failure to properly maintain safe conditions, you may be eligible for compensation through a personal injury claim. Brad Morris Law Firm, PLLC can help you file this claim and seek justice. Whether we are able to settle out of court or we have to represent you at trial, our Mississippi premises liability attorneys equipped with the necessary skill, experience, and resources.
What is Premises Liability Law?
Premises liability refers to the responsibility which property owners have to maintain a safe and secure property. Failure to maintain certain safety standards may lead to them facing a lawsuit if someone else is injured on their property as a result. There are several different types of premises liability, including the following:
- Slip/trip and fall cases
- Animal attacks
- Swimming pool accidents
- Inadequate security which leads to attacks or assaults
In Mississippi, premises owners are not insurers for the safety of individuals on their property – however, they are obligated to take reasonable measures to protect anyone on their property from dangerous conditions.
Potential hazards on someone’s property could include:
- Debris, trash, and clutter
- Negligent security or a lack of security
- Liquids on flooring and other slipping hazards
- Broken steps, stairs, and railings
- Elevators, escalators, and other mechanics that are not properly inspected or up to code
