Premises Liability

Whether you are out doing business at the bank, on vacation, or going shopping at a mall, there are certain obligations that the property owners and managers have to maintain safe premises and prevent dangerous conditions which lead to accidents. If the owner or manager of a private or public property fails to keep the premises safe and this results in you being injured, you may be entitled to receiving compensation.

At The Mitchell Firm, PLLC, our Ridgeland personal injury attorneys represent clients who have suffered injuries as a result of negligent property owners and property managers. We work to recover damages for your medical expenses and hospital bills, your lost wages, and your pain and suffering.

A slip and fall or other related accident can occur virtually anywhere, such as at an amusement park, a store, a shopping mall, a gas station, bank, grocery or drug store, office building, or even on a private property. Premises liability claims can even include animal attacks, swimming pool accidents, and toxic exposure. Injuries incurred in a premises liability case may include head injuries, neck injuries, back injuries, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones.
