Common Causes of Personal Injuries in Hattiesburg, MS

There are similarities shared between all personal injury lawsuits. However, there are different legal analyses that may apply to each. Each analysis depends on the type of accident that caused the injury at issue. There are many types of accidents that serve as the basis for personal injury lawsuits. The following are types of accidents frequently seen by our Hattiesburg personal injury lawyers.

Distracted Driving Accidents

Distracted driving is one of the most common causes of auto accidents in Hattiesburg. The widespread use of smartphones and touch screen control centers in vehicles can lead to more distracted driving accidents. Distracted driving occurs when a motorist takes his eyes off the road, hands off the wheel, or mind off the task of driving. The following are examples of activities that can distract a driver when behind the wheel:

  • Texting
  • Scrolling social media
  • Adjusting a radio
  • Interacting with a GPS
  • Eating
  • Talking on the phone
  • Talking to other passengers

Some activities, such as texting, involve all three forms of distraction. These activities are inherently dangerous. Therefore, distracted drivers can be held liable for damages stemming from accidents they cause. Our Hattiesburg personal injury lawyers can help prove that an accident was caused by a distracted driver.

Drunk Driving Accidents

Drunk driving is another fundamentally dangerous activity that leads to personal injury lawsuits in Hattiesburg. Drunk drivers injure thousands of people across the country each year. Alcohol impairs judgement, motor function, reaction times, vision, and many other skills required to drive safely. Accordingly, impaired drivers can be held liable for the injuries they cause. Our Hattiesburg personal injury lawyers can help gather evidence to establish fault on behalf of a drunk driver after an accident.

Hit and Run Accidents

A hit and run is committed when a motorist causes a traffic collision and then does not stop afterwards. Fleeing the scene of an accident is referred to as a “hit and run.” Hit and run accidents are also common causes of personal injury claims.

However, the process for recovering compensation in a hit and run accident can be complicated. If the perpetrator of a hit and run is not found, you may be able to recover compensation from your own uninsured motorist coverage. Our Hattiesburg personal injury lawyers can help resolve any coverage disputes and handle communications with your insurance company.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle riders appreciate the freedom and exhilaration that accompanies riding their bike. However, these riders are at a greater risk of suffering an injury during an accident than those driving standard cars. Motorcycle riders can suffer severe and devastating injuries as a result of another motorist’s negligence.

Accordingly, motorcycle accidents also lead to many personal injury lawsuits in Hattiesburg. Our Hattiesburg personal injury lawyers can help recover monetary damages for victims of motorcycle accidents. Victims can recover a variety of damages related to their accident.

Truck Accidents

Furthermore, truck accidents are also a common source of personal injury lawsuits in Hattiesburg. Like motorcycle accidents, accidents involving trucks can cause more severe injuries than accidents involving standard cars. Due to the vehicles size and weight, collisions with trucks can be catastrophic. Therefore, those who have been injured because of a truck driver’s negligence may be awarded compensation in a personal injury case.

Construction Accidents

Construction sites are inherently dangerous workspaces. Construction workers are frequently working at excessive heights with dangerous tools or heavy machinery. Accordingly, injuries to workers or pedestrians at construction sites are also causes of personal injury claims in Hattiesburg. The following common sources of construction accidents:

  • Falling objects
  • Electrical accidents
  • Defective equipment
  • Misuse of tools
  • Fires and explosions
  • Improper use of safety equipment
  • Welding accidents

If you suffered an injury because of another contractor or manufacturer’s negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation in a personal injury lawsuit. If your injury was caused by your employer’s negligence, you may only be able to recover Workers’ Compensation benefits. After suffering an injury in a construction accident, our Hattiesburg personal injury lawyers can help determine if you have grounds for a personal injury claim.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Lastly, slip and fall accidents also frequently give rise to personal injury claims in Hattiesburg. Slip and fall injuries can cause serious harm to senior citizens or those with pre-existing conditions. Accordingly, property owners are required to maintain their property and keep their premises safe for visitors. If you suffered a slip and fall injury because a property owner failed to maintain their premises, you may be entitled to compensation. The following are common forms of negligence on behalf of property owners that lead to slip and fall injuries:

  • Slippery floors
  • Wet or icy sidewalks
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Loose carpet or rugs
  • Narrow staircases
  • Uneven steps
  • Unmarked hazards

However, there are several other forms of carelessness that can lead to slip and fall accidents. Our Hattiesburg personal injury lawyers can help prove a property owner’s negligence if you were injured because of a slip and fall.

“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.
