Handling Premises Liability Matters from Presuit Investigation and Negotiations through Trial

Daniel Coker trial attorneys have a long history of representing hotels, restaurants, casinos, grocery stores, retail stores, apartment owners/managers, and other businesses in premises liability matters. Our documented experience includes successfully resolving cases ranging from slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall claims to high exposure claims resulting from third-party criminal actions and drownings.

Daniel Coker represents businesses of all sizes, from small, family-owned businesses, to Fortune 500 companies in all state and federal venues in Mississippi and throughout the United States. When defending businesses against premises liability claims, we focus on identifying all possible grounds for disputing or mitigating liability. We take this approach in a broad spectrum of premises liability cases, including:

  • Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents
  • Falls from heights
  • Falling objects
  • Walkway obstructions
  • Exceeding capacity
  • Negligent security
  • Attractive nuisance claims
  • Work-related premises liability claims
  • Elevator and escalator accidents

A thorough investigation is a crucial first step. Daniel Coker attorneys work with industry experts and investigators to examine the accident site and look into the plaintiff’s activities both before and after the incident. Based on the information we gather, we build a targeted defense strategy. In many cases, it is possible to resolve premises liability claims prior to trial without liability through motions to dismiss and for summary judgment.

Daniel Coker attorneys regularly collaborate with individuals and businesses to build and execute effective defense strategies. While Daniel Coker attorneys will negotiate when settlement negotiations are warranted, our attorneys are also skilled litigators who will not hesitate to take plaintiffs’ claims to trial.
