Personal Injury Overview

If you have been injured, this is not the time to be nice or to worry about what other people will think. No one is going to hand you the money you need to be able to recover from the effects of the injury you sustained. You need a lawyer who will fight like a bulldog. It might be your only chance.

I have been called “the Bulldog of Mississippi” for more than 39 years. I fight with all my strength to help my injured Tupelo-area clients get back on their feet.

  • Motorcycle wrecks
  • Wrongful death
  • Slip-and-fall accidents

Personal Injury Lawyer Helping People With Catastrophic Injuries

Injuries from automobile and truck accidents, falls, or workplace accidents can derail your life. With the loss of work, the medical expenses, and pain and suffering, a personal injury lawsuit might be the only way for you to survive financially after an injury. Some of the injury cases I have handled include:

  • Lost limbs
  • Broken bones
  • Blindness
  • Burns and scarring
  • Brain injuries and memory or cognitive function impairment
  • Severe back and neck injuries, including whiplash or paralysis of all or part of your body

Do not give statements to the other side or insurance adjuster. Do cooperate and provide information to the police if requested. It is also in your interest to take many pictures of your injuries.

Premises Liability/Mississippi Slip-And-Fall Attorney

As an experienced Mississippi slip-and-fall attorney, I’ve handled many cases in which the negligence of a property owner resulted in a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident. Spilled liquids in grocery stores and merchandise stacked in the store aisle are some common examples of premises liability. Other types of premises liability cases include:

  • Slippery walkways
  • Poorly maintained canopies and other overhead dangers
  • Nails and other dangerous objects lying about on the property
  • Broken glass
  • Elevator malfunctions causing serious injury or death
  • Explosions
  • Falling from ladders
  • Swimming pool drownings and injuries

Products Liability

All types of products can be defective in design, manufacturing, or in the company’s failure to warn the user of dangers. If an accident results, you may be able to hold a company responsible. Product liability cases have been brought against a wide range of companies for accidents such as:

  • Lawnmower blades severing limbs
  • Exploding aerosol cans
  • Food poisoning
  • Car and truck crashes because of car part malfunctions
  • Chainsaw accidents
  • Four-wheeler rollovers
  • Defective machinery at place of employment

Wrongful Death

Because they are in the midst of their grief, people who have lost a loved one due to wrongful death frequently don’t think about the fact that there may be a claim for money. Sad as you may be, you might need that compensation to survive, especially if your lost loved one was a financial provider for the family.

I can help. My law firm has taken on many Northern Mississippi wrongful death cases. I have the experience to know how difficult this situation is emotionally. As your lawyer, I will represent you with discretion and care while doing everything possible to get you the compensation you deserve for your loss.

Mississippi Wrongful Death Attorney

Although many people don’t like to think about the possibility of a lawsuit right after losing a loved one, the fact is the law gives an avenue to provide valuable compensation for:

  • Loss of income that the deceased provided for the family
  • Children’s college fund
  • Retirement income
  • Unexpected costs of burial and funeral arrangements
  • Pain and suffering due to loss of companionship

Experienced Attorney Who Understands What You're Going Through

My experience allows me to handle your case with discretion and understanding. I can also relate to your circumstances. I needed to learn how to move on with my life after my father died from a dangerous product when I was just 18 years old. I can represent you as your lawyer, and I can empathize with you as a person.

Fighting For Justice

A successful wrongful death suit can bring a sense of closure, and with the financial reward comes a sense of justice for the grieving survivors. It may also provide an incentive to the manufacturers or person who caused the death to correct defects in the product or procedures. Your lawsuit may save others from severe injuries or death.

Slip and Fall Accident

Property owners are required to maintain reasonably safe premises. When they fail to do so, injuries can occur. If you have been injured, now is not the time to worry about what other people will think; you need to obtain full compensation for damages such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
