Premises Liability Claims in Mississippi & Alabama
The slip & fall attorneys at Pepper & Odom are experienced in helping accident victims file claims. They can help you.
Mississippi and Alabama businesses have a legal duty to their customers to keep their premises in a reasonably safe condition.
Similar duties also apply to private property owners and lessees, who may be legally liable for persons who are injured on their premises when dangerous conditions are present.
Premises Liability Slip & Fall Attorneys Handle:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Sidewalk accidents
- Parking lot accidents
- Commercial and residential accidents
- Elevator accidents
- Inadequate security
- Improperly stacked merchandise
As with all similar personal injury cases, the injured party must prove that the owner or lessee either caused the unsafe condition, or knew or should have known that there was an unsafe condition on their property.
Mississippi and Alabama comparative fault laws also come into play when determining how much responsibility each party has, which could limit the amount an injured party could recovery in a law suit.
Consult with An Attorney As Soon As Possible
Time is very important in these types of cases, and it is important that you consult with a personal injury attorney so the process of gathering evidence can begin before the conditions are changed or the premise is repaired.
Our lawyers and investigators immediately take steps to secure all available evidence and try to make immediate inspection of the accident location including taking photographs and interviewing witnesses before evidence is lost or destroyed and the witness’s memory fades.
Building code violations and other prior similar accidents help our attorneys understand what dangerous conditions may have been involved.
