Legal Process and What to Expect in a Long Beach Personal Injury Claim

Mississippi Personal Injury Law requires the injured party to prove the defendant’s negligence, recklessness, or wrongdoing caused their injuries.

When our Long Beach personal injury lawyers accept your case, we will take the following steps:

  • Thorough Investigation: We will investigate your accident, gathering evidence like police reports, eyewitness testimony, accident scene photos, and surveillance footage.
  • Liability Determination and Options: We will identify the at-fault parties and evaluate your options for pursuing compensation. This may include a personal injury lawsuit or a workers’ compensation claim if your injuries are work-related.
  • Damage Assessment: We will document your injuries and losses (medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering) to determine the appropriate compensation amount.
  • Demand Letters and Negotiations: We will present demand letters to insurance companies outlining your injuries, losses, and the legal basis for your claim (often citing Mississippi Personal Injury Law). These letters will detail the compensation necessary to make you whole again. Our experienced attorneys will then negotiate aggressively with insurers to secure maximum compensation for you.
  • Litigation, if Necessary: If negotiations fail to produce a fair settlement, we are prepared to file a personal injury lawsuit and present a persuasive case on your behalf in court.

Throughout the process, we will handle all paperwork and communication with insurers. Your focus should be on following your doctor’s orders and recovering from your injuries. We will answer any questions or concerns you may have about your case.

Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims in Long Beach, MS

In Mississippi, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is typically three years from the date of your injury, as outlined in Mississippi Code § 15-1-49. This applies to all cities and towns in the state, including Long Beach. Missing this deadline can significantly impact your ability to seek compensation through a lawsuit.

Why is the Statute of Limitations Important?

The statute of limitations ensures fairness for both injured parties and defendants. It encourages timely filing of claims and allows for the preservation of evidence.

What Happens if I Miss the Deadline?

If you miss the three-year deadline, you may be barred from filing a lawsuit against the at-fault party, even if your claim is legitimate. This can significantly hinder your ability to recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

We Can Help You Meet Deadlines

At Haug, Farrar & Franco, PLLC, we understand the importance of meeting filing deadlines. We will work diligently to investigate your case, gather evidence, and file your claim within the appropriate timeframe.

Compensation for Your Long Beach Personal Injury Claim

A personal injury claim in Long Beach can help you recover compensation for various losses you’ve incurred due to your injuries. These can include:

Medical Expenses

This covers all costs associated with your medical care, including emergency room visits, hospitalization, surgery, medications, pain management, physical therapy, and mental health services.

Long-Term Care Needs

If your injuries result in a permanent disability, you may need ongoing support services like home health care, housekeeping, or modifications to your living space to accommodate your needs.

Lost Wages

You may be entitled to compensation for wages lost while recovering from your injuries or if your injuries prevent you from returning to your previous job altogether. This can include lost income from part-time work or a lower-paying job you might be forced to take due to your limitations.

Loss of Future Earning Capacity

If your injuries permanently impact your ability to work and earn a living, compensation can be recovered for lost future income and benefits.

Pain and Suffering

This covers the physical discomfort and emotional distress you’ve experienced due to your injuries.

Loss of Enjoyment of Life

Compensation can be sought for the impact your injuries have on your ability to participate in activities you once enjoyed due to pain, disability, or disfigurement.

Comparative Negligence in Mississippi

Mississippi follows a comparative negligence system. This means that if you’re found partially at fault for the accident that caused your injuries, your compensation award will be reduced by the percentage of fault attributed to you.

At Haug, Farrar & Franco, PLLC, our experienced Long Beach personal injury lawyers understand the tactics insurance companies use to minimize settlements. We will aggressively negotiate on your behalf and refute any attempts to shift blame for the accident to you. Our goal is to secure the maximum compensation you deserve for your losses.
