Mississippi Legislation to Drastically Reduce Liability for Property Owners

A bill to protect landowners from potential liability exposure is almost a reality for Mississippians.

The language within the bill would eliminate lawsuits against landowners in situations where injury was caused by a third party, unless claimants can prove:

(a) The conduct of said third party occurred on the property;
(b) The conduct of the person who owns, leases, operates, maintains or manages the property actively and affirmatively, with a degree of conscious decision-making, impelled the conduct of said third party; and (c) The third party’s conduct proximately caused the economic and noneconomic damages suffered by the injured party.
