Personal injury occurs when someone is injured as a result of the negligence, carelessness, or wrongful conduct of another person. This is a very broad category, also known as a “tort” in the State of Mississippi, where the victim’s goals are to hold the tortfeasor legally responsible for the injuries they caused.

Of course, the amount of compensation will depend on the severity of your injury, and future loss of earning a living. Mental and psychological anguish can also account for additional damages.
