Products liability is a relatively broad term for claims filed due to injuries caused by products. Although the injuries can vary widely, the reason that a product caused them can often be narrowed down into three different categories. ​ The three common categories that products liability claims fall into are: ​ Defective manufacture Defective design Failure to warn Product Liability vs. Strict Liability Although both products liability and strict liability cases have to do with injuries caused by a product, there are distinct differences between the ways that the cases are tried. More specifically, the burden of proof required for each of these cases is different. ​ Products liability claims require you to prove that your injuries were caused by a defect, another party’s carelessness, or negligence. Strict liability claims, on the other hand, require distinct proof that you used the product as intended. Call Our Jackson Product Liability Attorneys Today If you or a loved one have been injured by a defective product, you need representation from a products liability attorney you can trust.

Common Types of Wrongful Death Claims Do you have grounds for a wrongful death claim? Many survivors may not realize just how many types of accidents can be considered valid grounds for a lawsuit. ​ The most common types of wrongful death claims include: ​ Workplace accidents Car accidents (or truck accidents ) Bicycle accidents and pedestrian accidents Premises liability accidents Medical malpractice Accidental poisoning Drowning How Do You Prove Wrongful Death? In Mississippi, a wrongful death lawsuit can be filed in any situation where the deceased person could have filed a personal injury lawsuit if they had survived the incident. Not all survivors are eligible to submit a wrongful death lawsuit, however. The burden of proof required for this type of lawsuit is extensive but, since wrongful death is a civil action rather than a criminal case, the burden of proof is lower and guilt beyond a reasonable doubt is not required. ​ The four elements of the burden of proof in wrongful death claims are: ​ Negligence Breach of duty Causation Damages Wrongful Death Compensation There are several categories of damages that may be included in compensation for wrongful death. No matter the category, when survivors receive a monetary settlement for wrongful death in Mississippi, they will not have to pay state or federal taxes on the amount. There are, however, limits to some of these damages. State law demands that non-economic damages be limited to $1,000,000, while in the case of medical malpractice, the amount is capped further at $500,000. ​ The damages that survivors may win in a successful wrongful death lawsuit include: ​ Medical expenses related to the final illness or injury Funeral expenses Burial expenses Survivors’ loss of companionship Lost wages and benefits Contact Our Jackson Wrongful Death Attorneys Have you lost a loved one?

  • Pedestrian Accidents | Practice Areas

    Pedestrian Accidents Pedestrians have as much right to a safe trip whenever they step outside their door. Funderburg, Sessums & Peterson, PLLC affirms those rights with every pedestrian injury claim. Practice Areas Bicycle Accidents Camp Lejeune Car Accidents Catastrophic Injuries Brain Injuries Spine Injuries & Paralysis Burn Injuries Insurance Bad Faith Medical Malpractice Motorcycle Accidents Pedestrian Accidents Premises Liability Slip & Fall Accidents Products Liability Truck Accidents Workers' Compensation Wrongful Death Contact us today Schedule Your Consultation Are you a new client? SEND INFORMATION Thanks for submitting! Jackson Pedestrian Accident Attorneys Pedestrian Injury Lawyers in Jackson, MS According to NHTSA figures, over 10% of all traffic fatalities in the country are pedestrians. While our national infrastructure was built for car travel, people mustn't forget that pedestrians have as much right to safe travel as trucks and cars. However, cars and other motorists are obligated to make sure they're watching out for pedestrians—after all, pedestrians have little hope of walking away from a collision unscathed. ​ The Jackson pedestrian injury attorneys at Funderburg, Sessums & Peterson, PLLC have more than 90 years of experience advocating for people who have been injured or killed in pedestrian accidents. Our firm's philosophy is simple: once an attorney takes your case, they devote all of their time and effort to getting everything you need. Every lawyer—even founding partners—are the main point of contact for each case. That way, you'll always have a direct line to whomever has your future in their hands. Get a free consultation today over the phone or in person. Call (601) 355-5200 to learn your legal options. Who Is Most at Risk in a Pedestrian Accident? In most cases, the victims are children and the elderly, as they're most likely to be struck by cars; the CDC reports that 1 in 5 pedestrian fatalities happen to people 65 years or older, and an even larger share were between 5 and 15 years old. Pedestrians who walk to work or walk in high-traffic areas were also at higher risk of being struck by a vehicle. ​ Perhaps the most common pedestrian accident cause, however, is alcohol. Drunk driving plays a role in nearly half of all traffic crashes, according to the CDC. Prosecuting drunk drivers is one way to ensure certain drivers never put pedestrians at risk ever again. The rise of smartphones and large screen displays have also led to more pedestrian deaths due to distraction. ​ Common tips for pedestrians to ensure visibility include: ​ Bright or reflective clothing Carrying a flashlight Only using crosswalks Adhering to signs and signals Staying on the sidewalk when possible ​ Failure to do these things does not disqualify you from seeking compensation. Ultimately, pedestrians have right-of-way, and motorists are obligated to avoid hitting pedestrians in all contexts and at all times. Let our firm investigate what happened to you.

Play Video Facebook Twitter Pinterest Tumblr Copy Link Link Copied Types of Accidents Workers’ Compensation Covers Workers’ compensation typically applies to any injury that occurs at work or while traveling for work. This is true whether the employee is traveling on a business trip or the scope of work includes travel, such as for truckers.

Contact our team at (601) 355-5200 today to learn more about your options! Workers' Compensation FAQs W hat Is Workers’ Comp ensation? Workers’ compensation is a no-fault insurance plan that is required for every employer in Mississippi with more than five employees, except for charitable organizations and farmers. ​ What Does No-Fault Mean? No-fault means that, if you are injured at work, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits even if nobody did anything wrong to cause your injury. ​ What Is Covered by Workers’ Compensation? Any injury is covered. It doesn’t matter if the injury is serious or not; all that matters is that the injury occurred on the job. Gradually developing injuries, like lung conditions caused by breathing in contaminated air on the worksite or carpal tunnel syndrome that occurs after years of repetitive hand work, are usually covered. Work doesn’t need to be the sole cause of an injury or disability for workers’ compensation to apply. As long as it can be shown that the work contributed to it by aggravating a preexisting condition or accelerating a condition that would not have otherwise become disabling, coverage can be granted. ​ W hen Does Workers’ Compensation Coverage Start? In Mississippi, workers’ compensation coverage begins on the first day of employment. Coverage remains even if an injured employee is terminated or quits. ​ What Should You Do If You Are Injured at Work? First, you should immediately report the injury to your employer, even if you don’t think it’s serious. You should also make a w ritten report (keep a copy!) and have witnesses sign it as confirmation of the injury. ​ What Benefits Are Available Under Workers’ Compensation? Medical treatment is available at no cost to you; there is no deductible or co-pay. The right to receive medical treatment paid by the employer and insurance carrier to treat a work injury is unlimited in amount and duration. If a medical provider takes you off work for more than five days as a result of your injury, you are entitled to disability benefits. Disability is paid at two-thirds of your weekly wage up to a maximum weekly benefit during the year that the injury occurred. These include: 2020 --$505.43 a week and $227,443.50 overall max; 2021 --$523.16 and $235,422.00 ; and, 2022 --$551.02 and $247,959.00. ​ How Long Does a Workers’ Compensation Claim Last? You have two years from the date of your injury to file a claim in Mississippi. Your benefits, including the money paid by your employer, will stop after two years unless you have filed a petition with the Mississippi Workers’ Compensation Commission. Funderburg, Sessums & Peterson Is Here to Fight for You Since 2000, Funderburg, Sessums & Peterson, PLLC has served the good people of Jackson after serious injuries.
