Personal Injury Lawyers in Meridian, MS
Injured in An Accident? Our Meridian Attorneys Can Help!
When you are behind the wheel of a car, out shopping or visiting a restaurant, or even using a new product, chances are, you do things carefully. While this should prevent you from getting hurt in a preventable accident, you cannot control or account for the behavior of others. If someone is careless and you are injured as a result, personal injury law gives you an opportunity to hold the at-fault party liable for their actions. It also gives you a chance to recover valuable resources.
At ‘Maggio | Thompson, LLP, our experienced personal injury attorneys will be by your side every step of the way and help you make the most of your case.
For results-driven representation, call us at (601) 265-6869 today.
Do I Have A Case?
Personal injury law is based on negligence, which is a legal term for carelessness. Legally, negligence occurs whenever someone else’s irresponsible act or omission leads to your injuries. In order to prove negligence, you must prove that the person who harmed you owed you a duty of care, violated that duty, and injured you. You must also document your suffering and provide evidence that the breached duty of care led to your injury.
- All drivers have a duty of care to those around them
- Speeding, drinking and driving, texting while driving, and failing to follow the rules of the road are all violations of this duty of care and cause accidents
- Vehicle occupants can sustain serious injuries
- First responders and medical professionals will document these injuries and the trauma that caused them
Although this example demonstrates a strong personal injury case, the at-fault party, or the defendant, will often try to deny liability. They may say they weren’t at fault for the accident, try to shift the blame onto you (the plaintiff), or claim you had a pre-existing injury or condition.
At ‘Maggio | Thompson, LLP, we present the facts, back them up with evidence, and preserve the strength of your case, helping you get all the compensation you deserve.
