Preventable harm sometimes occurs on the premises of apartment complexes because of third-party crimes or unsafe conditions. In a negligent security lawsuit, a plaintiff will need to show that the apartment owner owed them a duty of care and breached the duty, thereby causing injuries and damages. Property owners have a duty to use reasonable care to protect people whom they invite onto the property from reasonably foreseeable injuries. While apartment owners cannot completely ensure their tenants' safety, they may be held liable if a third-party criminal attack was foreseeable. Foreseeability may be shown in Mississippi by proving that a defendant knew or should have known about an attacker's violent nature or knew or should have known that there was an atmosphere of violence at or near the premises.
When you buy medication, toys, appliances, cars, and other items, you assume that they would not be sold if they were unsafe. Unfortunately, manufacturer mistakes in manufacturing, design, or marketing may result in a dangerously defective product. If you are injured because of a defective product, you may be able to hold the manufacturer of the product liable for the resulting damages. In Mississippi, manufacturers are required to make sure that their products are reasonably safe for consumers and have effective warning labels. Generally, to establish a product liability claim, you will need to prove that you were injured by the manufacturer's product, the product was defective, the defect was the cause of your injuries, and you used the product as it was intended to be used.
When you go to a doctor or another health care professional, you trust that person to use the utmost care to diagnose and treat you. However, mistakes do happen. Medical malpractice arises when a health care professional deviates from the professional standard of care and thus causes your injuries or causes an illness to worsen. Some examples of medical malpractice include birth injuries, failure to diagnose cancer, prescribing the wrong medication, or misdiagnosing a heart attack.
Our firm also represents claimants in seeking federal Social Security Disability benefits. Applying for SSD or SSI benefits may be challenging, and many valid and legitimate claims are initially denied before being approved upon further review. The same five-step analysis is used in each state when evaluating whether an applicant has a qualifying disability to begin receiving Social Security payments. This analysis is not always as straightforward as it may appear, and retaining an attorney may make a difference to navigating the appeals process and the outcome of your claim.Consult a Personal Injury Lawyer in Tupelo or Surrounding Areas
