Premises Liability aka Slip & Fall

If negligent, property owners are held responsible for financial damages due to an injury that occurred on their property. Premises liability applies to individuals (home owner claims), as well as to entities, such as businesses who fail to meet a standard of care. Property owners and managers have the responsibility to maintain a safe environment for others who may come onto the property. Types of "Premises liability" cases include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Falling due to a  wet substance not removed after a reasonable time,

  • Falling due to a poorly maintained floor or staircase; 

  • Dog bites;

  • Burns or injuries in a fire caused by negligence;

  • Injuries due to poorly lit or insecure parking lots or parking garages; and

  • Injuries due to generally poorly maintained property.

Let us get you the compensation you deserve!
We don't get paid unless you get paid.  *Our fee and reimbursement is contingent on you receiving settlement or successful verdict, at which time our "Contingency Fee" is collected from said funds.  Be mindful that some attorneys charge greater Contingency Fees than what we at The Mims Firm, PSC charge, so don't be afraid to ask questions. Our standard Contingency Fee is 33 & 1/3 % of your settlement pre-litigation or 40% if litigation is entered.
*Our Contingency fee is related  to obtaining damages for pain and suffering in your personal injury cases and hourly charges may be charged for services outside this scope of representation.

Contact a Kentucky Lawyer, Teddy Mims, to obtain compensation for your injuries as a result of the negligence of another, including the failure to maintain a safe environment for their customers or guests.  However, the time you have to file a claim is limited in Kentucky.  The Statute of Limitations for a premises liability case in Kentucky is one year from the date of incident causing the injury.
