Pursuing a Personal Injury Claim After an Accident
Car and truck wrecks occur daily on Mississippi roads, highways, and interstates. Most of these collisions end up with at least one person getting hurt. If another driver’s negligence caused you to sustain injuries, your damages may include medical bills, lost wages from missing work, and pain and suffering. Other non-economic damages may be available, including loss of enjoyment of life, scarring, or disfigurement.
Property owners in Mississippi must reasonably maintain their premises and provide certain protections to licensees and invitees, including social guests, business customers, and tenants. If you get hurt in a slip and fall incident, the property owner may have breached a duty owed to you if it knew of the dangerous condition but failed to correct it. Constructive notice is relevant as well. In certain situations, an owner may be responsible for an innocent party falling victim of a third party criminal attack such as a shooting, assault, or robbery. This cause of action is referred to as negligent security.
Many times, defendants and their insurance carriers will point the finger right back at the victim for causing or contributing to an accident. If this happens to you, do not assume that your claim is barred or that you have no rights. Mississippi follows pure comparative negligence, which states the victim’s overall recovery may be reduced by any applicable percentage of fault for the accident. When comparative fault is asserted early in the process, many people wrongfully assume that their claim is automatically barred and that they have no rights. This is one reason to discuss your accident with an experienced personal injury attorney in Mississippi.
Sometimes, a large corporation is responsible for causing injury rather than another person. Each day, defective products are introduced into the marketplace and travel through the stream of commerce. Our attorneys may be able to represent you in a product liability lawsuit, depending on the facts. There are multiple ways in which a manufacturer or distributor may be held liable in one of these cases, such as a manufacturing defect, design defect, or marketing defect (also known as failure to warn).
