Slip, Trip & Fall Accidents Working 24/7 For What You Deserve- It's What We Do

Jackson Slip & Fall Accident Attorneys

We Have the Premises Liability Experience You Need

Slip or trip and fall incidents fall under the category of premises liability lawsuits. This simply means that you were injured on someone else’s property and that the owner or another party could be liable for medical bills and other damages.

Premises liability cases can be difficult to win and should be handled by an attorney with experience litigating cases and taking on big businesses. At ‘Maggio | Thompson, LLP we are willing and able to take on these challenging cases to represent our clients’ best interests. It is our promise to work tirelessly and efficiently with one goal in mind: maximizing any recovery to which you may be entitled.

Call (601) 265-6869 to discuss your case. We serve Jackson and all of Mississippi.

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.
