Personal Injury

Personal injury describes a large area of law that seeks to compensate individuals who have wrongly suffered injury or death. For over 30 years, Davis & Williams has taken on the simplest to most complex of cases; our primary objective has always been to help our clients recover all that they are entitled to under the law.

Our personal injury attorneys serving Jackson will take the burden out of dealing with insurance companies once and for all; you deserve legal experts who can expose an undervalued claim and won’t be afraid to go to court and try your case for the best compensatory results.

How Does Personal Injury Work?

Personal Injury cases are successful when proving that the victim’s injuries are the direct result of someone else’s conduct that violated a legal duty. For example, all motor vehicle operators owe a duty of care to others to operate their vehicle in a safe and prudent manner. When a driver causes injury to another person by driving too fast, not maintaining control of his vehicle, or failing to maintain a proper lookout for other vehicles, the injured person may pursue legal action to recover damages. Similarly, business owners have a duty to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition for shoppers and visitors. When a store employee fails to keep the floors clear of dangerous conditions, such as an unattended pool of water, and a customer slips as a result, the customer may pursue legal action to recover for damages resulting from the fall. It is vital for individuals who have suffered an injury due to the breach of another’s duty to contact one of our attorneys as soon as possible to begin working on your case.

In the State of Mississippi, vehicle accidents are common. As a matter of fact, the state has the highest rate of traffic deaths per capita nationwide. While we handle all personal injury suits, our firm has extensive experience of over thirty years focusing on these specific suits and how to effectively recover in Mississippi.
