I reside in Seattle, Washington, and needed an attorney in Mississippi, my research led me to Noel Harris. My case took a little under three years, and Mr. Harris provided the best representation of myself and my lawsuit. The outcome was very favorable for me, and I am grateful for Mr. Harris. He is detail oriented, and does not miss a beat. I was treated with respect and kindness. I hope I do not have business in Mississippi again, but if I do, I know who to call. I cannot give a higher recommendation of Harris Law Firm.

I contacted Katie for help with an unusual legal problem. I needed a court order to have a birth certificate issued for a family member who died 30 years ago. As you can imagine, there is no attorney that specializes in birth certificates, but I sure did luck up. As soon as we spoke she and her team dove into the State statute and the Department of Health policies and quickly had a legal path to make this happen. In the process we uncovered a problem with the way the estate was handled and she took care of that also.

She was upfront about the cost and I found it to be reasonable. I was most impressed with the open and clear communication. She returned calls and emails promptly and used common language that I could understand. There were no surprises. Best of all, I am out of state and she took care of everything, saving me time and a trip. Katie really made this a painless process and I would highly recommend her.

Yes, I recommend, highly recommend, this firm because they take pride in their work and their reputation. If you care for specifics, read below:
1. Of the many firms from which I sought help, Harris Law Firm, PLLC of Greenville, MS, was the ONLY firm that deemed me worthy of even a response.
2. Their honest, realistic, upfront options were thoroughly and patiently explained to me without enticing promises.
3. I did not have to keep calling to find out what was going on. Their action was immediate; they had taken the first step before I completed my part. As a matter of fact, I had missed their attempts to notify me that it was favorably over.
4. Oh, and I agree with the two reviews before mine about the friendly staff and the reasonable fees.

We had a pretty bad accident back in January 2020 and we went to Noel Harris. He was very knowledgeable and very friendly. He would explain the whole process to us and treated us like friends and not just clients. I would recommend him to anyone.

Slip and Fall Accidents

The owners and occupiers of property, both public and private, have a duty to protect and warn visitors to their premises of any dangerous conditions that could lead to a slip and fall accident.

When they fail to warn others about these hazards and someone breaks an ankle or suffers another type of injury, the owner of the property can be liable for damages. Some of the most common causes of slip and fall accidents in Mississippi include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Wet and slippery surfaces
  • Cluttered floors
  • Loose floorboards
  • Potholes or uneven surfaces
  • Torn or uneven carpeting
  • Recently waxed floors
  • Weather conditions
  • Spilled liquids, greasy, or oily substances
  • Trash or debris on floors or in aisles
  • Loose or cracked stairs
  • Poor lighting
  • Exposed electrical cords
  • Lack of handrails, and more.

Compensation for a Broken Ankle Slip and Fall

The average compensation for a broken ankle in a slip and fall case is determined by a number of different economic and non-economic factors in your claim. Economic damages refer to your out-of-pocket expenses for your ankle break, including current and future medical expenses, rehabilitation, property damage, lost wages, and the loss of future wages and benefits.

For particularly complex ankle breaks where multiple bones fracture, pins, bolts, or screws are necessary, or multiple surgeries are needed to heal the injuries, your economic damages for a broken ankle settlement amount could be substantial.

Non-economic damages include payment for pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and disability. In Mississippi, the law limits noneconomic damages in a personal injury case to $1,000,000 but places no limits on the amount of economic damages for recovery.

In the most egregious cases of slip and fall cases, the court may decide to award punitive damages to punish the owner or occupier of the property where the injury took place for particularly negligent or reckless behavior that led to the accident.

Punitive damages for this type of case are rare, but when a client receives them, there is no limit to the amount of punitive damages the victim of a slip and fall case can receive.
