Jackson Civil Lawsuits

Civil lawsuits are for when a person seeks financial compensation against the person or party who caused their injury with negligence. These can include personal injury, medical malpractice, premises liability, and even class action if the issue has affected enough people.

At Morgan & Morgan, we specialize in these varieties of civil lawsuits, with the expertise and resources needed to get you the compensation you are entitled to for your damages. Civil suits often involve investigations and expert analysis to figure out what you could get in compensation, and how severe your injury is at all.

Our Jackson attorneys are willing and able to take this responsibility and stress off your hands, figuring out how to win your case while you rest and recover.

If you have been injured by another person's wrongful actions, the lawyers in our Jackson office may be able to file a civil lawsuit on your behalf. To find out if the liable party owes you compensation for your injuries, please complete our free case review form today.

Types of Mississippi Civil Lawsuits

Personal Injury Lawsuits: The most common types of civil lawsuits in Mississippi are personal injury lawsuits. In a personal injury lawsuit, a person who has been injured because of another’s negligence files a lawsuit against a negligent person or corporation. For example, if you slip and break your leg on a wet floor in a grocery store, a Jackson civil lawsuit attorney may be able to help you file a personal injury lawsuit against the grocery store to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Medical Malpractice Lawsuits: A medical malpractice lawsuit involves allegations that a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare professional caused injuries to a patient by failing to adhere to the accepted standards of the medical profession. For example, if a patient goes to a hospital for knee surgery and the surgeon operates on the wrong knee, the patient may be able to sue the doctor for medical malpractice. In a medical malpractice civil lawsuit, an injured patient can recover compensation for past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Premises Liability Lawsuits: If you have been hurt or were assaulted on public or private property that did not have adequate security, our Mississippi civil attorneys may be able to help you seek compensation through a premises liability lawsuit. In a negligent security case, a person who has been assaulted or robbed may be able to sue the property owner for failing to provide a safe environment.

For example, if you were assaulted in an apartment complex that had a history of muggings or robberies and the property owner failed to hire security guards or install security cameras, our premises liability attorneys may be able to file a lawsuit seeking compensation against the property owner. Our Mississippi civil attorneys also handle premises liability cases involving slip and falls that occur at grocery stores, convenience stores, and other public places.

Wrongful Death Lawsuits: In a wrongful death lawsuit, a victim’s surviving spouse, child, or parent files a lawsuit against the person or corporation whose negligence caused the victim’s death. A surviving spouse and certain family members may be able to recover compensation for medical bills, funeral expenses, loss of income and support, and pain and suffering. For example, if your spouse passed away after having open heart surgery and the surgeon committed medical malpractice during the surgery, a Mississippi civil lawyer may be able to help you seek compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit.

Class Action Lawsuits: A class action lawsuit is a civil lawsuit filed on behalf of a large group of people who have each suffered a similar harm because of the negligent act of a corporation. For example, if a yogurt company claims that its products are “all natural” but they actually contain artificial ingredients, people who purchased the yogurt believing it to be all natural may be able to file a class action lawsuit against the company. In class action cases, usually each member of the class either receives the same amount of compensation or each class member’s compensation is determined by a formula that is applied to the entire class.

Mass Tort Lawsuits: A mass tort civil lawsuit is similar to a class action lawsuit in that it usually involves a large number of plaintiffs who have been harmed. In a mass tort lawsuit, each plaintiff may have suffered a different level of injuries, so each plaintiff may be entitled to a different amount of compensation.

For example, in a mass tort case involving defective hip implants, some injured victims will have suffered only minor injuries from the defective medical device, while others may have required surgery. Because each patient suffered a different degree of harm, each plaintiff will receive a different amount of financial compensation.
