Slip & Fall Accidents in Mississippi
Call on Our Jackson Personal Injury Lawyers
Slip and fall accidents can cause serious, life-altering injuries. In most cases, the owner or tenant of the property may be held liable for your injuries. However, in order to prove liability, the injured party must show that the owner or tenant created the dangerous condition, knew about potential hazards, or should have known of dangers and failed to take reasonable steps to correct the problem.
Under Mississippi law, store and property owners are required to follow certain standards to ensure a reasonably safe environment. Determining whether negligence occurred in a slip and fall accident on another’s property requires a thorough knowledge of the law and experience handling these types of claims. The Law Offices of Malouf & Malouf, PLLC has successfully handled slip and fall accidents for more than four decades and can use this insight to assist with your case!

Most often, slip and fall accidents occur when a property owner or tenant fails to properly take care of or maintain their property.
