Jackson, MS Personal Injury FAQ
What is the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Jackson, MS?
In every state, there is a time limit imposed on personal injury lawsuits. This means you only have a certain amount of time to file suit against the party or parties that caused you harm. According to Mississippi Code § 15-1-49, plaintiffs (injured parties) have 3 years from the date of their injury to file a personal injury lawsuit. If you were injured in an accident in the Jackson area, that means you have three years to come forward with a case. There are exceptions, however, such as in cases involving injuries to minors or instances where the source of an injury or illness was not discovered right away. Our Jackson personal injury lawyers will be happy to talk to you about your options and rights in this regard.
What types of compensation can I receive in a personal injury lawsuit?
A personal injury lawsuit grants an injured or wronged party the opportunity to recoup their losses. This may mean that they can recover compensation for medical treatment, ongoing care and therapy, lost earnings, loss of future wages, and property damage. Personal injury cases even offer the chance to recover compensation for non-economic damages like emotional trauma, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life. The purpose of the damages awarded in a Jackson personal injury case is to help the plaintiff rebuild and move on with their life. A significant recovery can do just that.
If I lost a loved one, what are my options? Can your Jackson injury firm help?
When someone loses a parent, child, spouse, or other family member, they can take legal action by filing a wrongful death case against the at-fault party or parties. Cases of this kind can be filed after serious motor vehicle accidents, workplace accidents, drownings, accidents on another’s property, and any other scenarios where someone lost their life through no fault of their own. Defective and dangerous products and exposure to toxic or hazardous substances can also offer grounds for wrongful death lawsuits. In Mississippi, the surviving family members can seek compensation for financial losses and emotional trauma.
What can a Jackson, MS personal injury lawyer do for me?
The time after an accident can be difficult. You might be dealing with an employer who wants you to return to work as soon as possible, an insurance company that’s trying to get you to accept a settlement right away, or medical bills that are piling up faster than you can even open them. A lawyer can step in and help you sort through the mess, explain your legal rights, and take over all communication with interested parties. While you focus on healing and moving on, your lawyer can work to secure a fair settlement or award that will cover all of your medical care, compensate you for lost wages, and so much more.
