Personal Injury in Mississippi
John D. Giddens P.A. is a boutique firm, which today primarily handles personal injury
and mass tort cases. Representing individuals and families impacted by untimely death and catastrophic injury requires exceptional knowledge and solid casework, along with an ability to effectively connect with and share each clients' story. Our staff facilitates clear and concise communication, and Mr. Giddens maintains a personal presence in each case he represents," he reveals. "I'm hands-on. My clients know that when they work with my firm, they will receive vigilant and professional care
that is tailored to their cases and their needs."
Giddens explains, "My practice limits legal representation to a small number of serious personal injury and death claims each year. This allows us to better focus on each client's unique needs, to provide those clients with immediate attention and to
ensure that each case is attended to with a sense of urgency and purpose. These cases include Auto wrecks, Brain Injuries, Trucking accidents, Wrongful Death and Medical Malpractice. "When cases have been completed the firm solicits a rated response from each client, and strives to incorporate feedback into their practice procedures. "As many of our clients come to us through attorney referrals, we understand the critical nature of providing them with a positive, professional
experience," Giddens remarks. "Our ratings show that clients are consistently pleased with the service and representation that we provide."
Giddens Firm History
John D. Giddens Law Firm is known for its exceptional
case preparedness as well as the utilization of cutting-edge
technology. The investment in time and resources, states
Giddens, is a must when handling high-stakes personal injury
cases. During the course of one notable medical malpractice
trial, his plaintiff 's brain injury was being questioned by the opposing
counsel, whose surveillance video seemed to show
a plaintiff with all facilities intact. Giddens was resolute in
his efforts to prove the plaintiff 's very real physical damage.
In addition to garnering expert witness testimonials from
neuropsychologists from New Orleans and Texas, Giddens also
provided the jury with an animated -but very lifelike- video
craniotomy. "The process was incredibly intricate," he recalls.
"Jurors witnessed firsthand the process of the craniotomy,
including hair removal, the opening of the skull to expose dura
and then brain matter, and the removal of pieces of the brain."
The animation, he asserts, helped the jury to truly grasp the
magnitude of the plaintiff 's situation. And the virtual reality
made a tremendous impact. Giddens notes, "One juror actually
raised his hand and asked to be excused, because he was going
to be physically sick from observing the simulated craniotomy."
In addition to personal injury cases, Giddens and his
associate attorney, Baskin L. Jones, have also become involved
in select mass tort cases. The firm continues to represent oyster
fisherman in cases against BP, and is working with former
players of the National Football League as they embark upon
litigation against the NFL for issues pertaining to head trauma
and brain injury. Though these will become part of a mass tort,
Giddens explains that his clients will benefit from his firm's
ongoing and attentive care. "We will continue to partner with
larger firms, while maintaining direct communication with our
clients," he says. "Our relationships with clients are cultivated
and respected, and we ensure that they maintain a connection
with the firm they hired." This commitment to personalized
representation is critical, explains Giddens, because while
clients may opt to become part of a larger case, they remain
individuals with very distinct stories. "Each player I've met is
dealing with a unique spectrum of problems related to head
injuries," he asserts. "We view everyone as his own person with
his own needs."
Managing a sense of client individuality within the
parameters of the mass tort process requires diligence and
purpose; Giddens and his firm maintain direct communication
with the appropriate steering committee or subcommittee
members if they aren't involved on those boards themselves.
Giddens, who is an active member of the American Association
for Justice, has established solid collegial relationships with
leading attorneys across the country. These connections
become invaluable threads in the fabric of complex consumer
litigations, ensuring that his clients are not set adrift in a sea of
anonymity throughout the process.
