Mississippi Personal Injury Lawyer

Personal injury law encompasses a wide variety of civil lawsuits. There are more ways than you can count to experience a personal injury, and you should speak to a lawyer about getting compensation.

A personal injury is a type of injury a person experiences on their body. Any physical harm you suffer at the hands of another might be considered a personal injury. Our office has handled numerous personal injury cases before, including accidents, slip and falls, construction accidents, and more. Filing a lawsuit to recover damages begins with a complaint. The process may take a long time to complete, and it is good to have an experienced attorney to advocate for your best interests. You can recover damages for your economic losses in addition to non-economic losses.

If you were injured due to someone else’s negligence or bad behavior, our Mississippi personal injury lawyers can help you get compensation. For a free case review, call Howe Law at (844) 876-4357.

How to Identify a Personal Injury Case in Mississippi

A personal injury consists of harm done to your body by someone else. People sometimes confuse personal injuries with damage done to personal belongings, but these things are not the same. However, things like property damage may be claimed alongside your damages for personal injuries in a lawsuit. Personal injuries might be caused by unintentional conduct of another, often involving negligence. They can also come from intentional acts that also constitute criminal offenses.

Some injured victims are unaware they have suffered a personal injury. They might know they are hurt but do not realize they can hold the person who caused their injuries liable in court. Our Mississippi personal injury lawyers can help you assess your damages and explore legal options for compensation.

People are sometimes hesitant to file a lawsuit. Lawsuits are significant undertakings, and they are known to take a long time to complete. Even so, if you are left with medical debt and other expenses because another person caused you injuries, that person should be held liable. Filing a lawsuit not only gets you financial compensation you can use to fund your recovery, but it also gets you justice in a court of law.

Cases Our Mississippi Personal Injury Attorneys Handle

As discussed earlier, there are a wide variety of personal injury cases. Each case is unique and deserves special attention, but many cases fall into broad categories of lawsuits. Our Mississippi personal injury attorneys handle a variety of these cases and can assist you in any of the following:

  • Auto Accidents
  • Construction Accidents
  • Drunk Driving Injuries
  • Distracted Driving Injuries
  • Hit and Run Collisions
  • Motorcycle Crashes
  • Pedestrian Accidents
  • Slip and Fall Incidents
  • Trucking Accidents

Many of these cases result from unintentional negligence, not intentional conduct. Even though the defendant in your case did not mean to hurt you, that does not mean they are not responsible for the harm they caused. The defendant might also be criminally prosecuted in many cases, such as drunk driving accidents.

Even if you are not sure your situation constitutes a personal injury case, you should consult with an attorney as soon as possible. No personal injury is too small, and bodily harm caused by another is a very serious issue. Your case deserves attention, and you deserve compensation.

Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Mississippi

The first critical step in filing a personal injury lawsuit is identifying the defendant. Many plaintiffs know exactly who they want to sue when they walk into an attorney’s office. Many others only know they have been hurt but not by whom. You cannot typically begin a lawsuit unless you can name the defendant. Common situations where a defendant might be unknown include hit and run accidents, slip and falls on a property with an unknown owner, or accidents where the plaintiff was rushed to a hospital before they could even meet the defendant.

Our Mississippi personal injury lawyers can help you identify the defendant. If it takes time to track them down, we can begin preparing your case while waiting. Your lawsuit starts with a formal complaint filed in the appropriate court. The complaint must contain specific details about the case, including how your injuries happened, why the defendant should be held liable, and what kind of relief you want from the court.

Our next step should be preparing evidence for trial. It is smart to begin collecting evidence as soon as possible, even before we have filed your complaint. Evidence can come directly from your accident scene, or it may be gathered elsewhere. Even if we do not have any hard physical evidence, witness testimony may be very powerful.

Available Damages in Mississippi Personal Injury Lawsuits

Perhaps the biggest reason an injured victim files a personal injury claim is compensation for their damages. Your damages may be economic and related to money spent to recover from your injuries. Damages may also be non-economic and related to losses or injuries that are strongly felt by the plaintiff but did not cost any money. Our Mississippi personal injury attorneys can help you calculate your damages to get the most compensation possible.

Economic damages in personal injury cases often consist of medical debt. After you were injured, you likely went to a hospital and saw a doctor for treatment. Your treatment might have been very costly, depending on how serious your injury was. The defendant should have to cover these expenses, not you.

Non-Economic damages can include pain and suffering related to your injuries. Bodily injuries are physically painful and can be emotionally traumatic. We can help you assess these damages by evaluating how your pain and suffering impact your life on a daily basis.

“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.
