When You Are Injured, Call Your Mama, Then Call Mama Justice
Every day, countless Memphis residents are injured in preventable accidents. The consequences of these car, truck, motorcycle, and workplace accidents can leave victims with financial hardships and permanent disabilities. At MW Law Firm PLLC - Mama Justice, we help ensure that these victims do not have to face these challenges alone.
Personal Injury, Defined
Many people are surprised to learn that the definition of “personal injury” has very little to do with the injury itself. Instead, the term refers to a field of law, also known as “tort law.” All personal injury cases are based on “torts” or acts or omissions that cause injury or harm to another person. A wrongdoing becomes a tort when the act or omission is negligent. Negligence is based on the idea that we all have a duty of care towards one another. Drivers must drive carefully, manufacturers must warn users of any risks or dangers associated with their products, medical professionals must adhere to a standard of care, and so-on.
To prove negligence, you must show:
- The defendant (or person who harmed you) owed the plaintiff (you) a legal duty
- The defendant breached that duty
- You suffered an injury or loss
- The defendant’s breach caused the plaintiff’s injury or loss
Per the American Bar Association, automobile accident cases are the most common inspiration for personal injury claims, so we can use a car crash as an example of tort law:
In car accidents, all drivers owe an implicit duty of care to those around them. As such, you will focus your case on proving fault and showing how the driver’s behavior was careless and caused your injuries.
Our Memphis-based personal injury firm pursues justice after torts of every shape and size.
In addition to general car accident cases, we handle specific types of car crashes and those involving other motor vehicles.
Our practice areas include:
- Drunk driving accidents
- Rear-end accidents
- Uber and Lyft accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Premises liability
- Workers’ compensation
- Mass torts
- Wrongful death
No matter what you are facing, our experienced Memphis attorneys can help you recover.
Why File a Lawsuit?
After a traumatic accident, you may not want to take legal action. Nevertheless, you are likely facing some unavoidable financial consequences.
Filing a personal injury lawsuit can help you recover from expenses associated with your accident. It can also give you the time you need to cope with your losses, especially in wrongful death cases.
Damages can help cover and offset:
- Medical bills, including emergency room fees
- The costs of rehabilitative care
- Missed wages
- Diminished earning potential
- Pain and suffering
- Changes to your quality of life
- Funerary and burial expenses and loss of consortium in wrongful death cases.
If the person who harmed you was especially careless or acted intentionally, you may also be awarded punitive damages. This award is designed to punish the wrongdoer, discourage similar behavior in the future, and provide you with additional financial comfort.
Call us at (662) 262-6264 to seek fair and full compensation for your injuries and losses.
Why File Today?
In Mississippi, those affected by negligence only have 1 year from the date of their accident to file a lawsuit. This time passes quickly, especially when you are preoccupied with your health and finances. Filing sooner rather than later not only ensures you will not miss a deadline and lose your right to make a claim, but also allows our firm to build a stronger case on your behalf.
