Being injured is never a pleasant experience, and being injured on someone else’s property can have a whole range of unpleasant consequences. When you’re on someone else’s property, you have a right to expect that the property will be safe within reasonable standards. You should be able to expect not to fall through the floor, slip and fall on the floor, be injured by falling objects or get bitten by a vicious dog. Mississippi Premises liability covers a broad range of injuries that occur on someone else’s property, but they all have one thing in common: negligence.

Mississippi Premises Owners Have a Duty of Care

Duty of care is a phrase in the legal industry that basically means people have a responsibility to take reasonable care with certain things that could foresee-ably cause potential injury.

For example, if a homeowner knows that the stairway is weak and on the verge of collapsing, but fails to warn you and you fall through the staircase, the homeowner could be said to have violated his duty of care. The homeowner could have reasonably assumed that someone might fall through a weak staircase and cautioned people against using it or made repairs to the staircase. His negligence caused you injury, so he might be liable for your injuries under premises liability laws.

In short, if a premises owner knowingly failed to address a potential safety concern, and you’re injured as a result, the owner may be responsible for your injuries. This is where a premises liability case begins.

Regardless of the severity of your personal injury accident, you have a right to seek legal help in order to protect your right to justice and compensation. Chhabra & Gibbs, P.A. will work tirelessly to hold those responsible for your injuries accountable for their actions.

Types of Premises Liability

Several types of injuries fall under premises liability law. These injuries may include:

  • Slip and Fall;

  • Tripping and falling as a result of uneven surfaces;
  • Dog bites;

If You Are Injured In A Slip And Fall, Here Is What You Should Remember:

  • Never give a recorded statement in the slip and fall.
  • Always write down names and contact information for witnesses in the slip and fall.
  • Save shoes and clothing as necessary in the slip and fall.
  • Document every detail you can remember at the slip and fall.
