Trustworthy Premises Liability Attorneys

Helping You Hold Negligent Property Owners Accountable in Southaven and Hernando

Many people assume that if they are injured in a store, parking lot, or another person's home, the property owner will pay for their damages such as medical bills. Unfortunately, insurance companies typically refuse to pay injury claims until you can prove fault on the part of the property owner. This can be difficult to do without a lawyer's help.

At the law firm of Chatham Gilder Howell Pittman PLLC, our lawyers handle slip-and-fall, trip-and-fall, and other types of premises liability cases in North Mississippi and West Tennessee. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and answer your questions.

What Is Premises Liability?

A property owner has a duty to protect guests from obvious dangers that could result in serious injury. This area of law, which is known as premises liability, applies to businesses, local governments, casinos, homeowners and other property owners.

To be held responsible, the property owner must be negligent. Just because you suffered an injury doesn't mean that the property owner was negligent.

Examples of negligence include:

  • Failing to indicate a wet floor
  • Failing to maintain safe conditions on a property
  • Code violations such as missing handrails on stairs
  • Americans With Disabilities Act violations for walkways and entrances
  • Dog bites or animal attacks, as long as the guest did not taunt or abuse the animal
  • Employees not paying attention to stacking procedures or how they are handling items
  • Unsafe conditions or poorly trained staff at daycare or child care facilities that lead to injuries

Always On Your Side

Our attorneys are experienced in negotiating with insurance companies to encourage them to do the right thing when an innocent person is injured. Damages are typically paid by homeowners or general business liability insurance.

We will seek damages that will cover all your medical needs, including extensive care and treatment for catastrophic injuries. If you suffered an injury on another person's property while performing your job, we can also help you manage a workers' compensation claim or apply for disability benefits, if your injuries were severe enough to warrant a claim.

Call (662) 222-0597 to set up a free and confidential consultation. There are no fees unless we recover compensation for you. We also serve Olive Branch, Horn Lake, and all of North Mississippi.
