You may be wondering how much your personal injury case is worth. Unfortunately, no one can honestly tell you until the extent of your injuries is clear. For many personal injury victims, the initial ER visit costs are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to expenses.
Our seasoned Mississippi personal injury lawyers will take the time to meticulously document your losses. Although each case is different, some of the common types of compensation we pursue include payment for:
Medical expenses. This includes hospital visits, diagnostic testing such as X-rays and MRIs, surgeries, follow-up doctor visits, medication, etc.
Future care needs. Our MS personal injury attorney can help you pursue payment for any future treatment or long-term care needs you may have related to your injury. This can include rehabilitative therapy, future surgeries, etc.
Lost income. Many people are forced to take time off work to recover from their injuries. Our legal team will demand compensation for that lost income.
Reduced earning potential for the future. If you cannot go back to work or must take a lower-paying job due to your injuries, we will seek payment for that loss. In addition, if you are disabled, our full-service firm can help you pursue Social Security Disability benefits.
Pain and suffering. Not all damages can be measured in the form of bills or paycheck stubs. However, pain and suffering weighs heavy on most personal injury victims, and you should be compensated for this loss.
In the aftermath of an accident, an insurance adjuster for the at-fault party may contact you. The insurance company may offer you a fast settlement, hoping you will take the money and move on. Never accept an initial settlement or sign anything from the insurance company without talking to an experienced Jackson personal injury attorney.

Our goal is to ensure you and your family are not left with unexpected expenses down the line. A full and fair personal injury settlement offer should take into account your total losses, not just your initial expenses.,
