Why Should I Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?
Our goal is to maximize the compensation you receive for your injury, and our attorneys will stop at nothing to make that happen. In building your case, our legal team can:
- Investigate the cause of your injury to identify who is liable
- Collect photographs of the accident, police reports, witness statements, medical records, and all other pertinent evidence
- Analyze the evidence to determine how much your case is worth
- Negotiate a settlement with the insurance company
- Prepare your case for trial if the insurance company refuses to negotiate in good faith
Generally, hiring a personal injury attorney affords you the best opportunity to recover the compensation you deserve. Our track record of success and ample resources make us uniquely qualified to take on your case.
What Kind of Compensation Can I Recover?
Our Mississippi attorneys may be able to help you recover the various costs (damages) associated with your injury, including:
- Medical expenses (e.g., hospital bills, medication, surgery, and in-home care)
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity (if you can no longer do the same work because of your injury)
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
What Is the Lawsuit Process?
Although no two personal injury cases are identical, they tend to unfold in a series of steps like this:
- Your attorney will file a complaint with the court that alleges wrongdoing on the part of the defendant and proposes a corrective action
- Lawyers on each side will exchange information in a process known as discovery
- A settlement may be reached at any time before trial
- If the settlement offer is inadequate, your attorney will present your case at trial
- If you win, the defendant will be ordered to pay you a specific sum of money
