Filing a Personal Injury Claim in Gulfport, MS

Personal injury plaintiffs in Gulfport will have three years from the date of an accident to file a claim. However, victims should contact our Gulfport personal injury lawyers as soon as possible for help building their claim. In addition to time limits, there are several other requirements that must be satisfied when filing a claim. You will be asked to pay court fees, serve the defendant, file in the correct court, attach supporting documents, and ensure you are filing a valid claim. Our lawyers can help victims comply with the variety of conditions for filing a successful claim.

Evidence Needed for a Personal Injury Claim in Gulfport, MS

In order to recover financial compensation in a personal injury claim, Gulfport plaintiffs must prove that their injuries were caused by another person’s negligence. Furthermore, plaintiffs must provide proof that they suffered damages as a result of their injuries.

Our Gulfport personal injury lawyers can help collect and preserve evidence in your case. The assistance of our experienced attorneys can help ensure that a judge or jury knows all the necessary details surrounding an incident. The following are examples of evidence that can be used to prove your claim.

Evidence from the Scene of an Accident

Evidence from the scene of an accident can be valuable when determining who was at fault. Photo evidence from a scene may be used to establish contributing factors such as weather conditions for a car accident case or a slippery floor for a slip and fall incident. Photos from the scene may also uncover other information that points to an at-fault party. For example, photos from a car accident scene showing skid marks may be used to show that one driver was attempting to avert another car.

Furthermore, evidence from the scene of an accident can be used to establish damages. In an auto accident case, an at-fault driver may attempt to claim that certain vehicle damage did not occur at the time of a crash. Photo evidence may be used to establish the extent of property damage suffered because of an accident.

Lastly, accident reports can also be used to prove that a party was negligent. Accident reports can be drafted by supervisors, police officers, and other parties after a personal injury has occurred. For example, in personal injury claims stemming from motor vehicle accidents or construction site accidents, an official accident report can help our lawyers prove which party was at fault.

Witness Testimony

Our Gulfport personal injury lawyers can also use witness testimony to establish fault in a personal injury case. For example, if someone observed a car crash, their testimony will be highly valuable when determining who caused the crash. Witnesses can provide written or oral testimony that may be used when negotiating for a settlement or at trial.

Expert Witness Testimony

An expert witness is a person who, by virtue of their education, training, and experience, is accepted as an expert in their field. In personal injury cases, it is common to call expert witnesses in the medical field. These experts may testify to the extent of a victim’s injuries and recommendations for treatment.

Another example of an expert witness that may be summoned in a personal injury claim is an engineering expert. For example, if a slip and fall injury was caused by an overly narrow staircase, an engineering expert may help establish that the staircase was not up to code.

Lastly, manufacturing experts are frequently summoned in personal injury cases involving dangerous or defective products. For instance, if you were injured because a piece of machinery was designed poorly, testimony from a manufacturing expert can help substantiate your claim. Our Gulfport personal injury lawyers can help choose the right experts to support your case.

Documentation of Injuries

A physician will need to produce official documentation of your injuries in order to recover damages related to those injuries. Accordingly, after suffering a personal injury, you should not wait to seek treatment. Insurance companies can use delays in treatment to complicate the settlement process. Our Gulfport personal injury lawyers can help refer proper treatment.

Documentation of your injuries can include information such as medical records and bills. Medical records can be used to prove the extent of your injuries while bill will be used to justify the amount of damages being sought.

Pertinent Physical Evidence

When harmed in a personal injury accident, physical evidence from the incident may also be used to establish negligence. For example, products liability cases involving a defective part, that part may be presented to establish evidence of its manufacturing defect. Another example would be using an opened alcohol bottle from the scene of a car accident as evidence that another driver was impaired. Our Gulfport personal injury lawyers can help victims determine which physical evidence from an accident may be relevant to their case.

“This business helped me so much when I had my accident.”

This business helped me so much when I had my accident. I really did not know how to handle what I needed to do to take care of myself. When I contacted this law firm, they gave me a case manager. Her name was Sheila Hess. Sheila was amazing!! She handled all of my needs with the utmost of care and privacy. Sheila was always very professional and kind. I would totally recommend this business to my friends and hope that they would be lucky enough to get to work with Sheila.

“They made sure that we received all of the medical care...”

Our case took a while and was a very long process, but this law firm took very good care of us. They made sure that we received all of the medical care that we needed and guided us every step of the way. This was especially true when the unexpected pandemic started and challenged all of us with the many adjustments we had to make.
