SLIP/TRIP AND FALL
Experienced Slip and Fall Lawyers
Our lawyers have experience successfully handling slip and fall cases.
In Mississippi, a retail business is not liable just because a customer is injured while on business property. Before a business can be held liable, you must prove that the business did something that was negligent. For example, if you can show that you fell because of a slippery condition that was not timely cleaned up, then the business may be liable.
Business owners should eliminate risks.
Slippery and improperly maintained floors and walkways can create dangerous or unsafe situations. These type of conditions expose others to an unnecessary risk of injury. Therefore, business owners are obligated to maintain floors and sidewalks in a reasonably safe condition or to warn customers of any unsafe conditions on the property.
Stair related falls can cause serious life changing injuries. Not all stairs are properly designed and constructed. Stairs may also become dangerous because of neglect and poor maintenance. The result can be rotten wood, weakened or loose hand rails and support brackets. Poor maintenance can also cause the surface of the step to become dangerously slick.
Coefficient of friction testing.
Slip resistance means the relative force that resists the tendency of the shoe or foot to slide on the walkway surface. Slip resistance varies depending on the type of walkway surface, the surface of the foot, and any substance on the floor.
