Our Mississippi Attorneys Investigate Catastrophic Accidents
To say that many of our clients have suffered catastrophic accidents isn’t an exaggeration. In legal and medical terms, an injury is “catastrophic” when it impedes a person’s mobility or cognitive abilities for a long-term period. Catastrophic injuries leave people unable to provide for themselves, robbing them of financial security as their medical bills pile up. In many cases, catastrophic injuries can destroy an entire family’s financial future, as family members must quit their jobs to take care of their loved ones.
Catastrophic injuries can include:
- Brain damage
- Loss of limb
- Neck and back injuries
- Severe burn injuries
- Post-traumatic stress
- Spinal cord injuries
- Severe fractures
- Loss of fine motor control
Our team’s duty is to find out how much a catastrophic injury will cost our clients over the course of their lives. We work with economists, home care professionals, and other experts to determine exactly how much each client needs to recover. As a result, we’re able to fight for verdicts and settlements that provide for our clients for the rest of their lives, providing for their future. This approach is how we’ve won hundreds of results worth $1 million and dozens of results worth $10 million.
Mississippi Personal Injury FAQ
What damages are available in a personal injury case?
A Mississippi personal injury lawsuit enables a victim of negligence or wrongdoing the opportunity to recoup his or her losses. This can be a complicated undertaking, particularly when you’re talking about catastrophic injuries that forever alter the course of a victim’s life. That is why the recovery of fair compensation is so important. It will give a victim the chance to get the care he or she needs, for the rest of his or her life. That can add up to quite a lot of money, as evidenced by the hundreds of verdicts and settlements we’ve achieved of $1 million or more.
A personal injury lawsuit may include economic and non-economic damages for:
- Medical care
- Ongoing medical treatment
- Medication and medical supplies
- Physical therapy
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Mental anguish
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Loss of future/potential earnings
- Punitive damages
With every case we handle, our injury attorneys see a chance to improve a life that has been turned upside down due to the carelessness or wrongs of another person or company. We fight for real results.
How long do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit in Mississippi?
For both civil and criminal cases, there is a time limit within which a case can be filed. This is called a statute of limitations. In Mississippi, the statute of limitations for most personal injury actions in three years. If you were injured in an auto accident, by a defective product, or in any other situation caused by someone else’s conduct, you have three years to come forward. If you wait too long, you could lose your right to file suit.
There are some exceptions to the Mississippi personal injury statute of limitations. If you were a minor at the time of your injury, for example, you may have 3 years from the time you turn 18 years old to come forward. Our attorneys can explain what limits may apply to your case.
How do I know if I need a lawyer after an accident or injury?
For very minor injuries that require little to no medical intervention and do not impact your ability to work, you may not need an attorney. For more serious injuries, however, you should consider involving an attorney. The medical bills may quickly pile up, and you may find that you are having trouble paying your bills because you’ve missed a lot of work and will continue to miss more while healing or seeing the doctor for ongoing treatment.
Instead of relying on your employer (if you were injured at work) or insurance company to treat you fairly and pay your claim in a timely manner, put an attorney in your corner who can fight for the support and care you need. Insurance adjusters are not on your side. Large corporations are not going to put your interests and well-being first. You need your own champion: an attorney at Arnold & Itkin.
