What Can a Jackson, MS Personal Injury Attorney Do for You?

If you retain our team, you can count on us to:

  • Research your case
  • Gather evidence
  • Send investigators to the accident scene if necessary
  • Utilize our extensive resources and experts to build strong cases
  • Evaluate all potential sources of insurance coverage
  • Thoroughly calculate your maximum compensation
  • File your personal injury claim
  • Negotiate with insurance adjusters and at-fault parties
  • Prepare your case for trial if needed

Our Firm Levels the Playing Field With Insurance Companies

No matter where your accident occurred or who is involved, you’ll likely be working with the at-fault party’s insurer to receive coverage for your damages. Remember that the main goal of insurance companies is to protect their own profits, not help you. Hiring a Jackson personal injury lawyer lets the insurance company know they cannot take advantage of your vulnerable situation.

Our attorneys can negotiate with an insurance adjuster, protecting you against being blamed for an accident that wasn’t your fault and showing that you’re serious about getting results. We consider all of the details, including current and future expenses, to calculate a fair settlement.

If we cannot agree on a settlement offer with the insurer, we can help you file a lawsuit to ask a judge and jury to intervene on your behalf. Our personal injury attorneys are ready to go to court if that is what it takes for you to get the compensation you deserve. Even when insurance companies are unwilling to make fair settlement offers, they know our attorneys aren’t afraid to go to trial. So clients who choose us won’t get outmatched simply because insurance companies outspend them.

What Practice Areas Do We Serve in Jackson, Mississippi?

Attorneys at our law firm handle a variety of client situations and claims in and near Jackson, Mississippi. Personal injury cases we work with range from wrongful death to minor injuries. If you were injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you should seek legal advice from a Jackson, Mississippi, personal injury attorney. Some of the practice areas we handle are listed below:

Richard Schwartz & Associates Injury Lawyers, P.A. is a large firm with extensive resources and the insight of top-rated attorneys. Our law firm has decades of experience with personal injury cases, and we know how to get results.

Do I Need an Attorney for a Personal Injury Claim?

You’re not required to have an attorney negotiate with the insurance company for you, but we highly recommend it. Insurance adjusters count on accident victims’ lack of experience to help them get away with low settlement offers or even blame the whole thing on you. When you hire an experienced personal injury lawyer, you tell the insurance company you will not fall for their tricks and that you expect fair compensation. 

Because insurance companies have powerful legal teams to defend against claims, you need advocates on your side who can protect your interests, represent you to the fullest extent, and help you fight back. It benefits victims to work with legal representatives who have a proven reputation and record of success.

Insurance companies know our firm will aggressively protect our clients’ rights, prepare cases as if they were going to trial, and fight to win. This reputation gives us leverage when we negotiate and helps our clients get the total compensation they deserve. 

What Kind of Damages Can I Claim?

If you were involved in an accident caused by another person’s reckless actions or negligence, you might be able to pursue a personal injury claim to recover compensation for damages that include, but are not limited to, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages.

In a personal injury, you can ask for compensation for every expense you’ve had due to the accident. These costs don’t only include obvious things like car repairs and medical bills. You can also ask for damages like lost wages or increased childcare costs. Then, of course, there are non-economic damages — things like pain and suffering — that our team can help you calculate.

Because some may be non-economic, such as loss of companionship, there isn’t an exact number that can be assigned to these damages. Therefore, determining award amounts depends on the circumstances of each case.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Case in Mississippi?

The Mississippi statute of limitations for personal injury cases is three years. That means you and your attorney will have plenty of time to pursue compensation through other means before filing a lawsuit. However, we caution you against waiting too long to get started.

People’s memories fade, and evidence may no longer be available the longer you wait. Also, putting a claim together takes time. In addition, we want clients to receive settlements as quickly as possible for their personal injury cases.

Will My Personal Injury Case Go to Trial?

At Richard Schwartz & Associates, only about 10% of the cases we take end up in litigation. Of those, approximately 1% go to a jury trial. Just because so few cases go to court does not mean yours will settle. Our goal, however, is to recover the money that you deserve without going to trial. This will reduce your expenses by helping you avoid additional legal fees, litigation costs, and fees for expert witnesses.

You can expect to have face-to-face negotiations, mediation, and arbitration during the settlement process. Your attorney will guide you through this process from start to finish. We will prepare your case as if it is going to trial and represent you in court if that is what it takes to get personal injury victims a fair settlement. Our firm has a proven track record of success.

What If I Was Partially At-Fault for the Accident?

Don't let the fear of being partially at fault deter you from seeking the compensation you deserve after an accident. Mississippi operates under a pure comparative negligence system, which means that even if you are 99% at fault for your injuries, you may still be eligible to recover damages.

Unlike the "modified comparative fault" system used in many other states, where plaintiffs can only recover if they are found less than 50% or 51% at fault, Mississippi's approach might give you a better chance at receiving compensation. If you've been injured in an accident but worry that your partial fault might hinder your chances of recovering damages, don't hesitate to contact Richard Schwartz & Associates for a free consultation.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

At Richard Schwartz & Associates, we want to make sure our clients can afford our services. Unfortunately, many injury victims face exorbitant bills due to medical expenses and lost wages.

This is especially true when an accident victim is dealing with catastrophic injuries; for this reason, we work on a contingency fee basis, which means you don’t pay unless we win. And when we win, the fees come out of the final judgment or settlement, so you have no out-of-pocket costs.

Work on Your Recovery While We Work on Your Claim

Whether it’s by causing a car accident on Interstate 55, or N. President St., or releasing a dangerous product to the public, any person or company that injures someone because of negligence should be held responsible for what they did. That’s the basis of insurance and personal injury law. However, getting a fair settlement after being injured isn’t a guarantee.

Our attorneys work in the personal injury field because they care about helping people find justice. That’s what drives our team at Richard Schwartz & Associates. Our Jackson, MS personal injury lawyers genuinely want our clients to get better and know they have someone fighting to get all their expenses covered. We’ll manage as much of your case as possible so you can focus on getting well.
