You might be a candidate for a personal injury case if you experienced one or more of the following:
- You were injured in an accident.
- Your property was damaged or destroyed in an accident.
- You incurred other forms of losses because of the accident or your injuries.
If someone else caused the accident or contributed to your damages, you might be able to file a claim or lawsuit against the at-fault party to hold them accountable for their negligence. A Gautier personal injury lawyer from the Morris Bart law firm can help you with this process and build a comprehensive case on your behalf.
Our Personal Injury Team Can Manage Your Case for You
The Morris Bart law firm works hard and diligently for each client we take on. We provide each new client a free case review to ask any questions about the legal process and what it takes to file a personal injury case. We aim to help you get the materials you need to move your case forward.
As our client, we offer multiple services to help you build your case and protect your rights. Below are a few examples of the legal duties we may fulfill for you as our client.
We Can Identify Who Is Liable for Your Damages
Before we can begin your pursuit of compensation, we must identify who to pursue compensation from.
Our legal team can review any available information you have about the accident, such as an accident report made by the police, to identify who the liable parties might be in your case.
Keep in mind that a liable party is not always synonymous with the at-fault party who might have caused the accident. For example, in cases where the at-fault party is an employee, their employer may be held vicariously liable for the employee’s actions.
We can investigate the details of your case to see whose negligence contributed to the accident and explain your legal options from there.
We Can Help You Collect Evidence
Once we identify the liable party or parties, we will need to collect evidence to support your case. Depending on what is involved in your accident, this can involve obtaining video footage from nearby surveillance cameras that caught the accident or speaking with witnesses who saw it.
While you may be able to retrieve some pieces of evidence on your own, we understand that other forms of evidence might not be as readily available. Our legal team can file the appropriate paperwork to request evidence or conduct our own investigation to collect more information for your case.
We Can Handle Communications
As a personal injury law firm, we advise you to not make any statements about the accident to the other party’s lawyer or their insurer. The opposing party may be able to manipulate your statements in their favor, which might jeopardize your right to receive full or any compensation.
Our legal team can communicate on your behalf, meaning we can relay statements to insurance companies, attorneys, and other involved parties for you. Alternatively, we can also advise you on what information you can reveal as your case progresses.
We Will Represent You
Finally, a Gautier personal injury lawyer from our firm can represent you during legal proceedings, whether you negotiate for an insurance claim or sue the negligent party.
Your lawyer can attend negotiation meetings on your behalf to discuss settlement terms. If the insurance company or opposing party does not want to comply with your terms, your lawyer can act on your case and file a lawsuit.

A Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help You Calculate Your Damages
Another main service we can offer you is to calculate the value of your damages. While many people know they need compensation, they might not always know the total value of all their losses.
Our law firm can factor the value of your current losses as well as your future losses into your claim. We can also help you identify potentially recoverable non-economic damages. Some of the damages we might be able to request on your behalf include:
- Medical care expenses
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Diminished quality of life
- Current and future loss of income
- Permanent disability
- Mental anguish
- Out-of-pocket expenses, such as for prescription medications or care services
We may suggest other damages to pursue based on the circumstances of your case.
Mississippi’s Statute of Limitations May Affect Your Case
In Mississippi, plaintiffs typically must file their personal injury lawsuits within three years of the date of injury, per Mississippi Code Ann. §15-1-49.
We can monitor this deadline and file your lawsuit on time if needed.
