Premises Liability and Slip-and-Fall Cases
Premises liability lawsuits include cases where individuals are injured on the premises or property owned by another. Examples of premises liability cases include slip and falls, trip and falls, inadequate security, and swimming pool drowning cases. Premises liability cases can result in serious, life-changing injuries as well as significant medical bills and lost wages.
The most common premises liability cases are those arising from slip and falls and trip and falls. To prevail in a slip-and-fall case or a trip-and-fall case in Mississippi, including DeSoto, Tunica, or Coahoma County, the jury must first find that a dangerous condition existed on the property. Next, the jury must find that either the property owner created the dangerous condition which caused the injury; knew about the dangerous condition yet failed to correct it; or, third, that the dangerous condition existed for a long enough time that the property owner should have know of its existence on the property.
If the jury finds that a dangerous condition existed and that at least one of the three theories of negligence is applicable, then the jury can award money to the injured person to compensate him or her for the injuries suffered. The jury’s verdict can include compensation for both past and future medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, permanent impairment, and lost wages caused by missing work due to the physical injuries.
