Why should I file a lawsuit?
The last thing you want to do after an accident is to try to negotiate with insurance companies or large corporations. They often take advantage of injury victims who don't know their rights. In many cases, insurance companies or large corporations will offer small settlements that only cover a portion of your medical expenses and lost wages.
That's not right. That's why you need the Mike Slocumb Law Firm on your side, fighting for the best possible settlement. We know how to deal with them so you can focus on what really matters - your recovery. Our personal injury attorneys know how to negotiate with insurance companies and large corporations.

What are the steps in a personal injury lawsuit?
Once your personal injury lawsuit is filed with the court, a settlement agreement might be reached before your case goes to trial. If your lawsuit isn’t settled, the process of discovery will begin where evidence is exchanged, questions are asked, and testimony is given.
Pre-trial motions may be made by the defendant’s attorney to dismiss your case due to a lack of evidence. If the evidence supporting your claim is so strong that it’s undeniable, your attorney can make a motion for a summary judgment, which means you win without going to trial. If your case goes to trial, a jury will decide if the defendant is liable for your damages and how much you’ll receive in compensation.
The personal injury lawyers from our Jackson, Mississippi law firm are tough negotiators and fearless trial attorneys who will aggressively advocate for your best interests. Get the compensation you need and deserve. Call our law firm today.
What is the average settlement for a personal injury?
There is no set dollar amount for a personal injury settlement. Some settlements might be worth a few thousand dollars. Others might be worth over a million. The amount of money you receive from a settlement will depend on the specific details of your case, including the extent of your injuries and the overall impact your injury has had on your life.
Generally speaking, you may be eligible to recover compensation from the at-fault party for your medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, replacement services, pain and suffering, and other damages.
If you or a loved one was injured in an accident due to negligence, you must act fast to protect your rights. Our Jackson personal injury lawyers can review the details of your case, answer your questions, explain your legal options, and let you know what to expect moving forward.
How much do clients pay their attorneys for personal injury cases if they lose?
It’s common practice for a personal injury law firm to represent their clients on a contingency fee basis, which means there are no upfront costs and no fees are owed unless there is a financial recovery made. If a financial recovery is made, a percentage of the compensation will go to the law firm for attorney fees. Fees vary from law firm to law firm, but the industry standard is anywhere from 25-40 percent.
At the Mike Slocumb Law Firm, our Jackson personal injury attorneys represent clients on a contingency fee basis. Our law firm also offers a free initial consultation. Contact us today to learn more.
