Protecting your rights when negligence causes you injury
Motorists are not the only people who owe others a duty of care. Property owners, corporations, and medical providers do too, and they must be held responsible when their carelessness harms innocent individuals. Our Belzoni injury attorneys also help with:
- Premises liability claims. These types of cases arise from unsafe property, including slip and falls, negligent security, dog bites, and casino injuries. If you are hurt as a visitor or guest on another’s property, you may have a premises liability case.
- Product liability claims. Consumers have a legal right to expect the products they purchase will work both as expected and in a safe manner when used as instructed. When companies put dangerous or defective products on the market and you suffer harm, you can claim damages under product liability law. These can include dangerous children’s products, dangerous drugs and medical devices, defective tree stands, and defective vehicle parts.
- Wrongful death claims. Any loss of life is tragic, but when your loved one’s death is caused by a preventable error, it is inexcusable. Our attorneys understand that nothing can bring them back, but a wrongful death claim can hold the responsible party accountable for their actions and ensure you have the financial resources to move on from your loss.
The statute of limitations for filing most personal injury cases in Mississippi is three years; however, you should contact an attorney at Merkel & Cocke, P.A. as soon as possible after your or your loved one’s accident. Some claims may have a shorter timeframe, and we can get started filing your case immediately.
Helping Belzoni victims of medical malpractice
The last thing we expect when receiving medical care is negligence from our healthcare professionals. Doctors, nurses, and technicians are only human and do make mistakes. However, when those errors rise to the level of negligence, also called medical malpractice, you have the right to hold them accountable for the injuries and harm they cause.
Medical malpractice is a complex area of law, and our attorneys are well-versed in both the medical industry and the legal issues surrounding it. Whether you or your loved one suffered injury through EMT/EMS negligence, failure to diagnose, medication mistakes, or malpractice through the VA, we are ready to advocate for you.
Some of the most devastating types of malpractice involve infants and birth injuries. We work with families whose children suffered birth injuries due to medical negligence, including:
