Visit the firm in Southaven, Hernando or Olive Branch and learn more about premises liability lawsuits
Everyone has that one really embarrassing moment: perhaps you tripped walking up your friend’s porch steps, or you went to sit down and completely missed the seat. Most of the time the only thing a person bruises is his or her pride. But sometimes a trip, slip or fall can cause a serious and long-lasting injury that requires medical care and time away from work.
When that happens, Taylor Jones Taylor is there to help you obtain the money you need to pay your bills and support your family while you heal. The firm serves all of north Mississippi from offices in Southaven, Olive Branch and Hernando, making sure they are always close by when you need them most. If you were hurt on another person’s property, and that injury was caused by the negligence of the property owner, you may be entitled to compensation to help you with your injuries and medical expenses.
What is a premises liability lawsuit?
Simply stated, premises liability means an owner or property manager is legally responsible for a specific place. If you slip on milk that was spilled the night before at Kroger, the company itself would be responsible for any injuries you sustain, because it is part of their job to maintain a clean floor and provide a safe shopping environment for their customers. If they don’t, you may be able to bring a premises liability lawsuit against that company.
Taylor Jones Taylor handles all manner of premises liability cases, including:
- Slips, trips and falls inside and outside
- Animal attacks
- Injuries sustained because of negligent security measures
- Traumatic brain injuries caused by falling objects
- Elevator and escalator injuries
Not all injuries on properties outside your own home are caused by negligence, however; sometimes a fall is simply a fall. But if you are hurt because a property owner or manager failed to keep an area safe and secure, and your injuries are the direct result of your accident – which was directly caused by those unsafe conditions – then you can bring a premises liability lawsuit against the person or company which wronged you. The skilled personal injury lawyers of Taylor Jones Taylor have decades of combined experience fighting for clients throughout Mississippi. Every case is prepared for trial, even if a settlement turns out to be in your best interest; in this way, the attorneys can make sure that every possible option is explored and every bit of evidence uncovered.
