Perrier & Lacoste obtains summary judgment in slip-and-fall at fast-food restaurant in Mississippi – September 2022

The plaintiff claimed she suffered a hip injury and needed a hip replacement as a result of a fall in a fast-food restaurant. The plaintiff fell as she was walking towards the beverage machine to fill her drink. The plaintiff alleged the floor was wet and slippery from a spill. Perrier & Lacoste filed a motion for summary judgment on liability, arguing that the plaintiff failed to meet her burden of proof under Mississippi law as to the existence of a dangerous condition or defendant’s actual or constructive notice of the alleged dangerous condition. The motion was so compelling that the plaintiff ultimately conceded the motion instead of having a hearing on it.
