How Can a Lawyer Help?
Our attorneys work tirelessly to build the strongest possible cases for our clients. To prove that one’s injuries were the result of another party’s negligence, a personal injury lawyer may do some or all of the following:
- Investigate the scene and cause of the accident
- Gather all relevant evidence
- Interview witnesses and healthcare providers
- Review police and accident reports
- Take photographs of the scene and review any available video footage
- Obtain all medical evidence to demonstrate the extent of the injuries
- Deal directly with the insurance companies
- Negotiate for a settlement that provides full and fair compensation
- Prepare the case for trial if settlement negotiations do not result in an adequate offer
What Kind of Compensation Can I Recover?
The purpose of a lawsuit is to provide compensation for the harm you suffered because of another person or company’s negligence, recklessness, or malpractice. An injured person may recover money from the at-fault party or (more likely) the at-fault party’s insurance company, either through a settlement or a jury verdict.
Although every case is different, Morgan & Morgan’s Jackson attorneys have a track record of success that few law firms can match. Over the past 30 years, we’ve recovered more than $7 billion for our clients, and our jury verdicts are 20 times higher than the pre-trial offers.
Our attorneys may be able to help you recover money for the following damages (among others):
- Medical Bills: You can recover compensation for out-of-pocket medical expenses, as well as any future treatments or procedures that you may need, including the cost of rehabilitation services or in-home care.
- Lost Wages: If you missed work as a result of the injury, you may be able to recover compensation for your lost wages.
- Loss of Earning Capacity: If you are unable to perform the essential functions of your job after an accident, you can seek compensation for your inability to make the same living. (Our attorneys work with experts in the Jackson area who can testify as to whether you are able to return to work, as well as the value of your future lost wages.)
- Pain and Suffering: You may be owed compensation for the physical pain, mental anguish, and emotional suffering you’ve suffered as a result of your injuries. (The spouse of a victim may also be able to recover damages for the loss of comfort, affection, love, or other benefits of a relationship.)
- Punitive Damages: This is additional compensation that is intended to punish the guilty party and deter others from the reckless conduct that led to your injury.
