PERSONAL INJURY & ACCIDENT

All cases are tried or settled with the permission of the client.

 

There is no fee if there is no recovery.

Automobile Wrecks

A car crash is a scary thing. You are commuting to work, running an errand, or out enjoying a Sunday afternoon drive, then your life changes suddenly. Maybe you already have hospital bills that you cannot afford. Maybe you need medical assistance but do not know where to go. To make matters worse, the insurance companies will not stop calling you, or perhaps they will not respond to you at all.

 

Mississippi law requires every driver to carry liability insurance, but this this is not always the case. You might even  have other insurance coverage that will kick in and pay you now. The attorneys at Kitchens Law Firm, P.A., will find all of the coverage available to you and we will handle the claims process for you, so you can focus on recovery, not insurance companies or other attorneys. Finally, if the insurance company is being unfair, we will get your case in front of a judge or a jury, so you can get the recovery you deserve. 

Slip-and-Fall / Trip-and-Fall

Mississippi requires business and land owners to take certain precautions to ensure your safety. Their duties to you depend on the reasons you are visiting their property. Their duties to you can be greater or lesser depending on if they invited you onto their property, or if you had your own reasons for being there. Mississippi courts have elaborated on these laws, analyzing hundreds of dangerous conditions and the duties owed by property owners. Kitchens Law Firm has successfully represented injured clients against home owners, major retail stores, casinos and restaurants.  If you were injured on someone else's property, call us to discuss your case.

Animal Attacks

From pit bulls to flocks of geese (it happens, see Olier v. Bailey, 164 So.3d 982 (Miss. 2015)), animal attacks can and do happen. There is no state wide law in Mississippi that clearly defines a dangerous animal. Sometimes, your local city or county has an ordinance addressing what animals are considered dangerous (or prohibited). Sometimes, an attorney must take the factors already addressed by the Supreme Court of Mississippi and apply them to your case. If you have been injured by an animal, you need the experienced attorneys at Kitchens Law Firm to walk you through your case.
