Personal Injury Attorneys in Brandon, MS
Don’t Suffer in Silence – Call Our Firm Today
Everyone is responsible for their own actions. When somebody acts negligently or fails to act appropriately, someone else should not have to suffer the consequences. Unfortunately, many accidents result in exactly this scenario. Fortunately, personal injury law exists to balance the scales.
When someone else harms you with their negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.
Our attorneys at 'Maggio | Thompson, LLP can help you pursue it.
With our legal skills and commitment to our clients, a full recovery is possible in any personal injury lawsuit you file.
Call us at (601) 265-6869 to get started.
How to Win a Personal Injury Case
To win a personal injury case, you must prove negligence. Legally-speaking, negligence is extreme carelessness that results in someone getting seriously hurt or killed.
To prove negligence, you must show:
- The person who hurt you (the defendant) owed you (the plaintiff) a legal duty of care
- The defendant breached their duty
- You were hurt as a result
- Your injury impacted you financially
Because you must provide evidence for all of the tenets above to prove negligence, minor injuries do not typically lead to lawsuits. Nevertheless, any traumatic event (i.e. a car accident) could lead to a successful case.
Our Brandon personal injury attorneys can help you find out whether or not you have a claim.

What You Can Win
Successfully resolving a lawsuit, whether via a settlement or a jury award can lead to financial damages. These payments can help you get your life back on track after a major accident or injury.
In most personal injury cases, damages cover:
- Emergency room fees
- Hospital bills
- All other medical expenses
- The costs of rehabilitative care
- Missed wages
- Decreased earning potential
- Changes to your quality of life
- And more
In cases of extreme wrongdoing, you may also be awarded punitive damages. Also called exemplary damages, these payments are meant to punish defendants and discourage similar behavior in the future. They can also provide additional comfort to victims.
In wrongful death claims, you should also be compensated for funerary expenses and loss of companionship. While no amount of money can bring a loved one back, alleviating financial stress and uncertainty can give you the time and space you need to grieve.
At 'Maggio | Thompson, LLP, we are committed to maximizing your recovery.
