We Take Slip And Falls Seriously

Everyone has fallen at some point, so people don’t often think of it as a serious matter. The truth is, however, that a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident can have severe consequences. If you fall on someone else’s property due to an unsafe condition, you may have a negligence claim against them. Property owners have a duty of care to others to keep their property safe or to warn people of an unsafe condition. Failure to do so could result in a premises liability lawsuit.

At Burns & Associates, PLLC, we are one of the few firms in Mississippi with an attorney specifically focused on premises liability cases. Our attorneys have over 35 years of combined legal experience. We are dedicated to helping injured clients throughout Hinds, Madison and Rankin counties with compassion and professionalism.

Steps To Take After A Fall

Many slip-and-fall accidents happen in a large store or retail center or on the walkways around the store. If you slip or trip and fall at a store, you may not know what to do next. We recommend that you:

  • Call for help right away – Your health and safety come first. If you are injured, you should reach out for assistance. You may need to call an ambulance, or ask someone else to call an ambulance, depending on the severity of your injury.
  • Take note of the scene – If you are able, take photographs of the area where you fell. Talk to anyone who witnessed your fall, and take down their contact information.
  • Seek medical attention – Visit a doctor as soon as possible. Even if you think you only have a minor injury, it may worsen over the following days and can develop into a serious situation.
  • Contact our office – At any point in the process, call us at 601-500-7021 for guidance. We offer free consultations and can help you decide on your next steps.

Our attorneys are here to make sure you fill out the correct forms, answer your questions so you understand the legal process and handle the insurance company for you. We will fight for the outcome you deserve.
