Southaven Personal Injury Lawyer
At Lunsford, Baskin, & Priebe, our Southaven personal injury lawyers handle many types of personal injury and accident cases that may arise in your life. Below is a summary of each type of claim we handle and some important information you should know about these cases.
Many Mississippi car accidents are preventable and are caused by someone else’s negligence. When you or someone you love is injured in a car accident someone else causes, you have the right to pursue compensation from them with a lawsuit or insurance claim.
Here in Mississippi, truck accidents are some of the most devastating accidents on our roads. They can cause severe and life-changing injuries, not to mention the frustration of trying to secure compensation from a big trucking company and its insurance carrier. Your truck accident lawyer can help you make a strong case for high-value compensation.
If you have motorcycle accident injuries, you might not get much sympathy from the driver who hurt you, the insurance company, or even the police. Motorcyclists sometimes face stereotypes about their responsibility for crashes. You’ll need an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer by your side.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Did you suffer injuries in a slip and fall accident? This is one of the top reasons for emergency room hospitalizations. You can hold a property owner responsible for unsafe conditions that caused your injury, medical bills, lost wages, and more.
Mississippi malpractice claims are among the most complex and challenging cases to prove. However, when you have the right evidence and the help of a skilled lawyer, you can successfully secure compensation from a doctor, hospital, clinic, or other healthcare professionals who failed to meet the appropriate standard for your care.
When you’ve lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence, you can start a wrongful death claim. This helps you cover expenses such as a funeral, burial, and cemetery costs. While no amount of compensation brings back your loved one, a wrongful death claim can ease the stress of your financial hardships.
How a Mississippi Personal Injury Attorney Can Help
If you’re wondering why you need to retain an attorney and how we can help your case, here are some things you should know: Insurance companies are for-profit businesses, and their allegiance is to their insured and the company. They will do whatever is necessary to keep from paying out on a claim.
Our job is to make sure they don’t take advantage of you. We’ll manage the communication with the insurance companies and their attorneys, plus we’ll conduct an independent investigation and gather all the necessary evidence. If we need to file claims with multiple entities or parties, we’ll ensure this communication goes smoothly.
Before an insurance company pays out on a claim, they need your medical records, billing information, employment records documenting your lost wages, and much more. We’ll gather this paperwork, negotiate with the other party, and fight for the maximum compensation possible.
If your case doesn’t resolve through negotiations, we can file a lawsuit on your behalf and handle the court system. If your case goes to trial, we have the experience and resources to represent you throughout the entire litigation process.
How Do I Know If I Have a Case?
Don’t know if you have a case? Here’s how to find out: Contact us for an initial consultation with a lawyer who specializes in the relevant area, like workers’ compensation, car accidents, truck accidents, slip and fall accidents, and more.
Your lawyer will meet with you and listen to your story. They will then sort through the legal matters and present you with your options so you can decide on your next steps. Unlike your employer or an insurance company, your lawyer always works with your best interests in mind.
If you decide to move forward with a case, your lawyer provides valuable assistance with a wide array of legal tasks like conducting interviews, communicating with involved parties, locating documents, and handling paperwork. Most cases can be settled out of court, but we can take your case to court and provide excellent representation, if necessary.
What Kind of Compensation Could I Recover?
