After a Slip & Fall Accident
If you slip, trip, or fall, there are three things that you should remember:
- Always take detailed pictures of the scene
- Never give a recorded statement
- Always write down names and contact information for witnesses
While these are often critical issues to remember, you should also save footwear and clothing that you were wearing at the time of the fall. You should document every detail and seek representation immediately. Details may be forgotten, and the scene may be repaired. Acting fast can protect your right to full, fair compensation.
Property Owner Negligence & Liability in Mississippi
Property owners and businesses have a duty to maintain safe property grounds for customers, pedestrians, and other visitors and adequately warn them of possible dangers. If a property or business owner is told of a potential hazard such as a loose handrail, a hole in the pavement, or standing water, a leaking display case, a roof leak, or other potential danger, they are responsible for fixing the problem before someone gets hurt. As with most legal claims, negligence must be proven for a successful recovery to be obtained.
Examples of property owner negligence include:
- Spills that cause slip and fall accidents in stores
- Steps that are uneven or missing handrails
- Inadequate lighting
- Misplaced items in high-traffic areas
- Cracks or holes in sidewalks
- Failures to provide handicapped access
- Leaking display shelves in grocery stores
Key Elements of a Slip & Fall Accident Claim
A premises liability claim must be proven by the plaintiff (the injured party). As Jackson slip and fall lawyers, we work with experts and investigators to determine and establish what caused the incident and why the property owner should be held responsible.
To win, we must prove three critical issues:
- The condition on the premises was dangerous
- The property owner knew, or should have known, of the dangerous condition
- The property owner failed to remedy and/or warn you of the dangerous condition
Property owners often make quick cleanups or repairs following accidents. For this reason, it is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. We offer a free initial consultation to help you understand your options, and if we take on your case, you don’t have to worry about upfront costs or any attorney fees at all unless we win.
