Personal Injury

Our experience handling personal injury cases of all types goes back at least as far as our handling of workers’ compensation cases. The typical personal injury cases involve auto accidents, establishing liability and recoverable damages under Mississippi law, and dealing with the liability insurance carrier and the carrier’s attorneys in working out a fair settlement or trying the case to conclusion before a jury.
