Types of Premises Liability Accidents

- Slip and fall/trip and fall
- Swimming pool accidents
- Criminal attacks and assaults as a result of negligent security
- Overzealous security
- Injuries to children caused by attractive nuisances

Attractive Nuisance and Child Trespassers
Mississippi property and business owners do not have a duty to provide a safe environment for adult trespassers, but child trespassers are another story. If a child trespasser is injured or killed as a result of an attractive nuisance, the property or business owner may be held liable. Examples of attractive nuisances include:
- Swimming pools
- Hot tubs
- Jungle gyms
- Appliances, such as refrigerators and deep freezers
- Old cars
- Unattended power tools
Premises Liability and Defective Products
Premises liability cases can be complex. Our experienced Biloxi premises liability attorneys will thoroughly investigate your accident to determine the true underlying causes. In some cases we discover that a defective product was involved.
For instance, if a loved one was killed or seriously injured in a fire on someone else’s property, we may discover that a defective product caused the fire or that a defective smoke detector allowed the fire to progress to the point that you could not safely escape before your loved one was to the danger.
If a defective product caused your accident, you may have a product liability claim instead of or in addition to your premises liability claim.
