Personal Injury Accidents We Handle
In almost any type of incident where one party behaved carelessly or recklessly and caused harm to another, Mississippi’s personal injury laws apply. Some common accident types that support these cases include:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip and falls and other premises liability accidents
- Dog bite cases
- Medical malpractice, including birth injuries
The Mississippi Civil Code allows anyone who suffered injuries to pursue a case against the party or parties who caused it. Some family members who lost a loved one because of their injuries can take legal action, too.
Under Miss. Code Ann. §11-7-13, spouses, children, parents, and some other immediate family members have a right to recover wrongful death damages after a loved one’s death. In general, if the victim could have filed a personal injury lawsuit, qualifying family members can pursue a wrongful death case.

Calculating Your Compensation Following a Personal Injury Accident
A Diamondhead personal injury lawyer from the Morris Bart law firm could help you put a fair settlement value on your case after an accident. When we represent a personal injury accident victim in Mississippi, we develop a case that includes evidence to:
- Support the claim
- Prove liability
- Document the client’s recoverable damages
These elements are important because they help us to convince the insurer or court that our client should receive a just payout and demonstrate how much compensation is fair. When estimating the value of a case, we consider our client’s financial losses, medical expenses, and psychological damages, and any other relevant evidence.
Types of Damages
The economic damages we seek are not limited to the current expenses and losses. We also seek future medical care costs, diminished earning ability, and more when possible. These damages are in addition to compensation to cover the current treatment and lost wages.
The intangible losses are even more difficult to calculate, but they are a key part of any personal injury financial recovery. We will put a fair value on our client’s physical pain, emotional stress and suffering, reduction in quality of life, and other non-economic damages.
We also represent families in wrongful death cases. Our team could help you understand your recoverable damages if your loved one passed away from their accident injuries.
Do You Really Need a Lawyer?
No matter if your injuries are relatively minor and occurred in a car accident or your loved one suffered serious injuries in a slip and fall, our team may be able to represent you. At the Morris Bart law firm, we work with personal injury accident victims and their families to ensure justice occurs.
You should not have to pay for the expenses or cover the losses you incurred because of an injury you did not cause. Instead, the Mississippi Civil Code outlines a process that may allow you to recover a payout and hold the negligent party responsible.
We are a contingency-fee firm that works with accident victims in four states, operating 15 offices across Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Arkansas. We know what it takes to navigate the claims process and secure a just financial recovery for our clients. Our team of trial attorneys will also take these cases to court when necessary and present strong arguments for court awards that hold the liable parties responsible.
Statute of Limitations
It is important to act quickly following your accident if you want our help. We generally have only up to three years to begin a civil suit per Miss. Code Ann. §15-1-49. We may be able to secure compensation through an insurance settlement before this deadline arrives.
