Aggressive Representation for Victims Injured in the Southaven Area
People in Southaven can get hurt in a variety of ways, all through no fault of their own. Common causes of injuries are car accidents, truck accidents, defective products, medical malpractice, on the job injuries, negligent security, and nursing home abuse, for example. In any personal injury case, the plaintiff bears the burden of proof, according to Mississippi law. This means the injured party must secure the evidence needed to meet the relevant legal standards, depending on the type of claim asserted. This is where hiring an experienced attorney in the Southaven area can pay dividends.
Some of the busiest intersections in Southaven are Church Road and Getwell Road, Goodman Road and Tchulahoma Road, and Goodman Road and Airways Boulevard, all in the vicinity of BankPlus Amphitheater at Snowden Grove. In a car or truck accident case, the victim must prove that the defendant driver owed him or her a duty to drive safely, breached that duty, and thereby caused the victim to suffer damages. If the defendant was driving an 18-wheeler or big rig truck, it will be important to investigate whether any Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations were violated. Claims may be asserted against the trucking company in addition to the at-fault driver.
Auto accidents can leave a victim with high medical bills and physical injuries rendering them unable to return to school or work for a considerable period of time, while victims with serious injuries may be forced to accept a lesser paying position at work due to permanent physical restrictions. A wrongful death presents even more emotional and financial strain on surviving loved ones. Common elements of monetary damages in Mississippi include medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life. These are known as compensatory damages. A personal injury attorney in the Southaven area can assist you in recovering the compensation that you deserve in accordance with Mississippi law.
When someone is injured on the job in Southaven, proving fault is not always required to assert a successful workers’ compensation claim. This means the employee must show that he or she was injured while acting within the course and scope of employment, usually meaning while performing job responsibilities.
Desoto County is home to a number of medical facilities and nursing homes. If you or a loved one was hurt due to a medical professional or facility’s negligence or malpractice, a claim can be asserted accordingly. Medical malpractice and nursing home neglect cases often require evidence demonstrating that a healthcare professional or entity failed to abide by the relevant standard of care for the particular specialty. Claims for dangerous pharmaceutical drugs and medication also have high burdens of proof. Establishing liability for these causes of action is typically best accomplished through qualified expert testimony.
