The reputable lawyers of Merkel & Cocke, P.A. have spent years helping individuals who were seriously injured by a property owner’s negligence. Our legal team has the resources necessary to thoroughly investigate the incident and identify all responsible parties.

Do you have a premises liability claim?
Premises liability lawsuits involve situations where individuals are injured on premises owned by another. Examples include injuries resulting from such accidents as inadequate security measures, icy walkways, swimming pool drowning cases and elevator malfunctions. These incidents can result in serious, life-changing injuries, as well as significant medical bills and lost wages.
Our knowledgeable lawyers know that the most common premises liability cases are those arising from slip and falls and trip and falls. To prevail in a slip and fall or trip and fall case in Mississippi, our attorneys first work to establish that a dangerous condition existed on the property. We then seek to prove that either the property owner created the dangerous condition that caused the injury or that the property owner knew about the dangerous condition, yet failed to correct it. We may also assert that the dangerous condition existed for a long enough time that the property owner should have known of its existence on the property.
Skilled litigators aggressively fight for the rights of injured victims
While we diligently attempt to reach settlements for our clients, our skilled attorneys never back down from a necessary courtroom battle. We strategize to present your case to the court. A successful jury verdict can include compensation for both past and future medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, permanent impairment, and lost wages.
