Auto Accident and Truck Accident Injury Attorneys in Ridgeland and Jackson

A lot of people involved in Ridgeland accidents did nothing wrong but were injured because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time and a negligent car or truck driver hit them.

It’s completely natural to feel frustrated and overwhelmed by injuries sustained in auto accidents. Those injuries may have required multiple corrective surgeries, long hospital stays and left you out of work for weeks or months.

People aren’t always able to work and earn a living while recovering, resulting in even worse financial situations – all because someone else was being negligent behind the wheel.

It’s not right for faultless families to carry the burden for car wrecks or truck accidents someone else caused. Unfortunately, the other driver’s insurance company may not be willing to pay the injured party the money they need to recover.

The insurance negotiators will try to say the car or truck accident was mostly the injured driver’s fault or they will attempt to delay or intimidate the injured party to get them to settle for less than they deserve.

Premises Liability and Slip and Fall Lawyers in Ridgeland and Jackson

Business managers and owners of properties, whether they’re residential properties or commercial properties, have a duty to maintain a safe premises. As long as you’re a legal guest or customer, you have a right to safety.

If there are hazards present on a property, the property owner or manager must provide adequate warning to ensure you know about the risk so you can safely avoid injury.

It’s not uncommon for property owners to fail to uphold this duty, which can result in people suffering slip and fall injuries, electrocution injuries, tripping injuries or other health complications.

In order to win a premises liability or slip and fall case, a plaintiff needs to be able to prove:

  • The defendant had a duty to the injured person (the plaintiff was on the property legally and was owed a legal duty of care)
  • The defendant failed to uphold that duty (they knew about a hazard but failed to address it or warn people on the property in a timely fashion)
  • The plaintiff suffered an injury as a result of that failure

The catch here is often in the knowing of the danger.

For example, if a shopper slips and falls in a puddle they just created in a grocery store, the grocery store would likely not be liable. It was a hazard created by the person who was injured, and the grocery store owners and staff did not have adequate time to recognize the hazard and address it.

There are, however, a lot of legitimate Ridgeland premises liability injuries:

  • Tenants in rental properties are frequently injured due to hazards their landlord knew about
  • Guests at private homes can be injured in Ridgeland pools that aren’t properly maintained
  • People trip on faulty flooring or stairs in apartment buildings
  • Shoppers slip and fall due to spills in grocery store aisles

If you or a loved one ever suffer a similar type of injury, the Ridgeland slip and fall lawyer at Kanner & Pintaluga are ready to fight for you.

Workers’ Comp Injuries in Ridgeland and Jackson

Workplace injuries are all too common in the Ridgeland and Jackson area. Every business in Mississippi with five or more workers is required to carry workers’ comp insurance. Unfortunately, not every business follows the rules, or they try to game the system to get around carrying workers’ compensation coverage.

Insurance companies and employers aren’t always willing to pay medical costs or lost wages for serious injuries. It’s not uncommon for workers’ comp insurance companies to try to get out of paying claims by alleging you were doing something that wasn’t job related when you were injured. They may also try to suggest your injuries aren’t as serious as they actually are.

If your employer or their workers’ comp company is giving you a hard time, the personal injury and workplace injury lawyers at Kanner & Pintaluga are ready to help.
