Proving Negligence Led to Your Personal Injury
Personal injuries, by definition, occur because someone else acted negligently. When determining if negligence occurred, there are four factors that must be present to hold someone else responsible for your accident injuries and other damages. These four factors include:
- There were laws, rules, or reasonable and expected actions for them to follow.
- They did not follow these rules or standards, acting carelessly or recklessly.
- There was an accident that occurred because of their behavior, and this caused your injuries.
- You sustained damages due to their actions or inaction, which can include not only physical and emotional damages but also financial losses and expenses.
Negligence can cause injuries in almost any type of scenario. Some of the more common ways include:
- Traffic accidents, including passenger cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more
- Pedestrian and cyclist versus car accidents
- Fall injuries
- Pool accidents, drownings, and other water incidents
- Recreational injuries, including boating and sports injuries
- Construction accidents and other workplace injuries
- Offshore injuries and Jones Act accidents
- Medical or pharmaceutical malpractice based on mistakes made by a medical professional

Recovering Compensation for Your Bay St. Louis Personal Injuries
When you suffer injuries through no fault of your own, you should not have to pay for the related expenses. Your medical treatment costs and losses related to time away from work should not add more stress to your daily life. Our team may be able to pursue a claim against the liable party and recover these economic damages on your behalf.
Under the state’s negligence laws, you may also be eligible to recover other, non-economic damages. These are the intangible losses you suffered that do not have an exact financial value. We will need to assign one so that we know what a fair payout will look like.
We know how to do this in accordance with common practices in personal injury cases in the state. You may be able to recover money for your physical pain, mental suffering and stress, and more.
When a personal injury incident leads to a victim’s death, wrongful death damages may be available under Mississippi Code Annotated §11-7-13. Immediate family members could qualify to recover wrongful death losses after a Bay Saint Louis accident. Our team may be able to help.
Statute of Limitations
It is important to know that there are deadlines for filing a lawsuit in a personal injury case in Bay St. Louis if that becomes necessary. We must meet the time limits set by Mississippi Code Annotated §15-1-49 if we need to take your case to trial.
