Mississippi Premises Liability Slip and Fall Attorneys Representing Clients Injured on Other People’s Property

Dedicated to defending your rights when you have been injured

Throughout the course of your day, you most likely find yourself on someone else’s premises. Whether you are walking into the bank, shopping in a store or mall, or walking through a public space, someone else is responsible for keeping premises that are open to the public in a safe condition. Property owners owe a duty of care and are legally responsible for maintaining a hazard-free environment. When certain conditions exist, such as insufficient lighting, broken handrails or poorly maintained steps and walkways, people can suffer a range of injuries. At Cumbest, Cumbest, Hunter & McCormick, we are ready to help you if you have been injured because a property owner failed to maintain safe conditions on the premises.

What kinds of slip and fall accidents most commonly occur?

Premises liability cases run the gamut from a slip and fall accident on a freshly mopped floor to being mauled by a neighbors’ dog to drowning in a community pool. The cause of premises liability cases can be traced back to the negligence of the property owner to maintain a facility in a safe condition and can include the following:

  • Contamination from hazardous materials’ exposure
  • Inadequate security
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Faulty handrails
  • Broken sidewalks, uneven pavement
  • Poorly maintained stairways
  • Icy pathways and roadways
  • Food spills that create slippery conditions

Because slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere at any time, property owners should be diligent about maintaining a safe environment for visitors and patrons.

What are the common injuries suffered in a premises liability accident?

A relatively minor slip and fall accident might leave a person with a bump on the head and a bruised knee. In the case of someone slipping and falling down a flight of icy stairs, however, the injuries are far more severe and may include broken bones, a head injury and soft-tissue damage. A major injury can land you in the hospital with medical bills to pay, lost wages from missing work, and the pain and suffering from your injury.

Premises liability cases can be routine or quite complex. Our personal injury attorneys at Cumbest, Cumbest, Hunter & McCormick are familiar with all the intricacies involved with investigating a premises liability case. We will represent your interests and pursue justice on your behalf.

How to determine who is liable for a slip and fall accident

Premises liability cases can be multifaceted, and it might not be easy to determine whether the incident was just an unfortunate accident or a case where the property owner was negligent. If you have been involved in an accident on someone else’s property and you believe that your accident was directly caused by negligence, you need an experienced attorney who can examine the case from all angles, investigate the accident and work with experts to identify the liable party or parties.
