Understanding Premises Liability in Jackson, MS

Premises liability is the general responsibility held by property owners to maintain a safe environment. Property owners in Jackson, MS, have a legal duty to take reasonable measures to prevent visitor harm. When they fail in this duty, accidents can result, leading to serious consequences for victims and their families.

Common types of premises liability cases that may result in compensation for victims include:

However, Mississippi’s premises liability laws are often complicated and unfavorable to victims. For example, the recently passed Landowners Protection Act limits owner liability when a third party injures someone on their property, making it difficult for victims to recover damages.

A skilled premises injury claim lawyer has in-depth knowledge of the law and the required steps for filing a successful lawsuit. Contact NST Law today to see if you qualify to seek compensation for your losses and how we can help you seek justice.

Legal Responsibilities of Property Owners

Property owners do not owe the same duty of care to everybody who suffers an injury on their property. Mississippi law maintains three separate classifications of property visitors, including trespassers, licensees, and invitees. Here are the differences and legal responsibilities property owners owe to each classification.

  • Trespasser: A person who enters the property without the owner’s permission or knowledge is a trespasser. The property owner has the lowest duty to trespassers to avoid willfully or wantonly injuring them while on the property.
  • Licensee: A licensee is any person who enters the property with the owner’s permission for their own pleasure or benefit. Social guests would fall under this category. Property owners are legally obligated to warn licensees of hazards or unsafe conditions.
  • Invitees: Property owners owe the highest duty of care to invitees, who are those the owner invites to the property for their own or mutual benefit. A shopper entering a store is an example of an invitee. Property owners have a legal responsibility to maintain safe conditions, warn of hazards, and take steps to prevent harm to invitees.

Insurance companies may try to place blame on victims or attempt to prove that the property owner had a lower duty of care. For this reason, contact our premises liability law firm immediately. Our team will help you and your family hold the property owner accountable and demand the compensation you’re owed under the law.
