Mississippi Negligence Injury Lawyers – Serving Mississippi Over 75 Years

What Is a Mississippi Negligence Lawsuit?
Often people are injured, or even killed, in Mississippi accidents caused by another person’s negligence.  In simple terms, negligent conduct includes careless and reckless behavior that causes an unreasonable risk of harm to others.  Negligence related accidents include a virtually limitless range of accident including motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall accidents, accidents or injuries caused by defective products and a multitude of other negligent acts that may cause serious injury or even wrongful death. 

These accidents can easily result in long-term disabilities, permanent loss of mobility, impaired mental functioning or debilitating pain and suffering.  Moreover, victims of negligent accidents often face steep medical bills, which they cannot afford because of lost wages and prolonged time off work.  If you or someone you love is injured due to the negligence or carelessness of another, that injury gives rise to a legal right to collect a fair amount of compensation for you injuries or loss.  Parties responsible for such suffering should be held financially accountable for their negligence.

If you or someone you love has been injured because of someone else’s negligence, you should not hesitate to contact Barrett Law, PLLC.  We can help you obtain the just compensation you deserve as we have people throughout Mississippi for over 75 years.  In any case of negligence, the injured person, or plaintiff, must demonstrate a number of things including: the wrongdoer or defendant owed a duty to exercise reasonable care, the defendant then violated that duty and that the injuries sustained were as a result of that breach of duty. Common negligence actions include car accidents, “slip and fall” accidents, professional negligence and faulty design or maintenance.
