What Your Compensation Can Pay For
Why should you demand compensation from the party that caused your accident and injuries? Sometimes, you might not realize just how much your life has changed until you start getting medical bills piling up and that you aren’t sure how you will pay. The purpose of a personal injury claim is to get you compensation to keep you financially stable as you recover.
Compensation can help pay for:
- Medical costs
- Future medical care
- Missing wages
- Limited earning potential
- Pain and suffering
- Quality of life decreases
We can also talk to you about different types of compensation available in wrongful death claims if you lost a loved one to an accident that was not their fault. While working on a wrongful death claim, we always exercise the utmost respect and care, so our clients don’t feel rushed into making any important decisions.

Frequently Asked QuestionsGet Answers From Our Gulfport Personal Injury Lawyers
Q:How much is my personal injury case worth?
A:Unfortunately, there is no way to accurately predict the value of your case. Every case is unique and will have its own value based on factors such as the severity and long-term impact of the plaintiff's injuries, the amount of available insurance coverage, the strength of evidence proving the defendant's liability, and the willingness of the defendant to settle. Our attorneys can review the facts of your situation and provide you with a rough estimate of what to expect, but nothing is certain.
Q:Is it worth it to hire a personal injury attorney?
A:Dealing with the legal system is a confusing and intimidating experience under normal circumstances. This is doubly true when dealing with the aftermath of a sudden accident or injury. If you have suffered serious injuries at the hands of a negligent party, it is absolutely in your best interests to retain the services of a personal injury lawyer. A seasoned attorney can handle all communication with insurance companies on your behalf, gather and analyze evidence, answer your questions, and ensure your rights are guarded during this difficult time. Additionally, several studies have shown that you are more likely to secure a larger settlement with an attorney than you would handling your case on your own. The sooner you hire an attorney, the easier and more efficiently they can get to work resolving your case.
Q:Will I have to appear in court?
A:It is possible you will have to appear in court for your personal injury case, but this is unlikely. The vast majority of personal injury cases are resolved in the form of a settlement long before a lawsuit is ever filed. Litigation is typically only required in situations where the defendant's insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement or if there is a dispute over liability for the accident or injury in question. While a trial may sometimes be necessary to yield a higher award, there is always the possibility that you will lose at trial and leave empty handed. We prepare every case as if it were going to trial to maximize our clients' odds of securing the compensation they deserve.
Q:How much does it cost to hire a Gulfport personal injury lawyer?
A:Our Gulfport personal injury attorneys at 'Maggio | Thompson, LLP accept cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning we will not charge you anything upfront for our services. We will only be paid if we are successful in securing compensation on your behalf, with our fee coming as a percentage of any settlement or jury award you may receive. This ensures our interests are aligned with yours, allowing you to focus on your physical recovery with peace of mind.
