Personal Injury

If you have been injured by someone else’s intentional or negligent conduct, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.  These injuries may include your physical health, your reputation, or even your emotional state of mind. Physical injuries giving rise to claims include automobile accidents, medical mistakes, defective products, pedestrian/bicycle accidents, and nursing home negligence.

In order to recover a money judgment, a plaintiff must first have been injured by some intentional or negligent act or acts of the defendant. The defendant’s acts also must have actually caused the plaintiff’s harm and this harm must be of a certain nature that the law provides a remedy to make the plaintiff whole. If you have been injured and all of these elements have been met, you may be entitled to relief. Call us at 662-234-8500 or email Jordan@BankheadLaw.com to set up a free and confidential meeting to see if you have a case.
