Personal injury cases involve death or physical, mental or economic injury to a person or business caused by someone else's negligence. Classic personal injury cases involve auto accidents and 18-wheeler collisions, boating and other water-related incidents, premises liability ("slip and fall" cases), workplace accidents and others. They also might involve non-physical injury claims, such as libel and slander, invasion of privacy and trespassing.
At Sheehan & Johnson, PLLC, our Gulfport personal injury attorneys are experienced trial lawyers who represent Mississippi clients in all types of personal injury and general litigation in state and federal courts. We have helped clients obtain multimillion-dollar settlements and judgments.
Current and former cases handled by Sheehan & Johnson include:
- An elderly woman whose automobile was hit by a commercial truck on U.S. 90 in Biloxi while delivering supplies to a local casino. The woman spent over two months in the hospital, and incurred medical bills of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
- A construction worker who fell four floors off of a residential construction project in Pass Christian and broke his back, causing paralysis and the total loss of his ability to work. His medical bills topped $300,000, and he needs lifetime medical care.
- A military serviceman who was attacked at a local nightclub, suffering life-threatening injuries. His medical bills topped $1 million.
- A passenger in a taxicab who broke a vertebra in her neck when the taxi collided with an 18-wheeler on Interstate 10.
- Several bankruptcy clients whose personal information — including Social Security numbers and medical records — were released to the public by creditors attempting to get paid in bankruptcy court. Our attorneys filed over a dozen invasion of privacy lawsuits to force the creditors to withdraw the information, and sought damages for the clients.
- A husband and wife who refinanced their home mortgage, but found out much later that an escrow agent had failed to transfer the funds to pay off the previous mortgage. As a result, the previous mortgage company initiated foreclosure proceedings against the couple.
- Several cases based on violations of the Interstate Land Sales Full Disclosure Act, which protects consumers in certain real estate transactions. Other consumer matters involve the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act and other federal and state laws.
