Personal Injury

Jim Messer has extensive experience in personal injury cases. "Personal injury" is a legal term for an injury to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property. The term is most commonly used to refer to a type of lawsuit alleging that the person's injury has been caused by the negligence of another.

The most common types of personal injury claims are traffic accidents, slip and fall accidents, defective product accidents, defective pharmaceuticals and defective medical devices, medical malpractice and trucking accidents.  

Attorneys often represent clients on a "contingency basis," in which the attorney's fee is a percentage of the plaintiff's eventual compensation, payable when the case is resolved. Oftentimes, having an attorney becomes essential because cases become extremely complex, such as in medical malpractice cases.

Messer Law Firm has represented a broad spectrum of personal injury clients ranging from simple auto accidents to complex multi-party litigation and mass torts. In business litigation the firm has handled significant construction law, breach of contract and business dispute cases.  A sampling of cases tried by Jim Messer involved a significant settlement in a wrongful death, electrocution case.  Attorney Jim Messer was also a member of a trial team whose work resulted in a significant verdict for a client injured by a defective pharmaceutical.
