Tupelo Premises Liability Attorneys

If you were injured due to negligence on the part of a property manager or owner, you might have a premises liability claim. Call to schedule a free case review with the law offices of Mama Justice today.

Every day, people put their trust in others that they’ll maintain a property in a secure and safe manner. From the corner supermarket to a place of employment, a property that is inadequately maintained can cause serious injuries to workers, patrons, and visitors.

Those who are injured in an accident on property that belongs to another person may be entitled to bring a premises liability claim against the property owner. While slip and fall accidents are, far and away, the leading cause of these claims, there are countless other scenarios that can result in serious injury. Property owners, or the person in charge of a property, are responsible for ensuring the property is as safe as possible and free of dangers.

Our Tupelo premises liability lawyers know that there is more to being an effective litigator than having decades of experience successfully representing injured clients. Proving truly phenomenal legal service also requires empathy and tenacity on the part of an attorney. Guided by the perseverance and dedication of our founding attorney, Missy Wigginton, our Tupelo legal team has a well-established track record of guiding injured victims through one of the most stressful and traumatic times of their lives.

Mama Justice and her Tupelo legal team are here to make sure that you get the justice and financial compensation you deserve.
