Why Should I Call JMB?


There are many reasons that a phone call to me, JMB, can help you with your case whether or not you choose to retain us.

First and foremost, we are looking out for you, the person who was injured through no fault of their own. Rather than continue to victimize you like the insurance industry does, we stand up to them. They are no different than schoolyard bullies trying to push you around and we won’t tolerate that. We take pride in the special care we give to all of our clients because we know how traumatic injuries can tear the fabric of a family apart. How a family’s entire life can be turned inside out and upside down by an accident or on the job injury.

Second, I’m from here. I was born and raised here. I’m not some corporate law firm that has blown into town with a lot of advertising telling you that they care about you and want to be your lawyer. You see me around town shopping in the same stores where you shop, eating at the same restaurants, at the same events you go to, out on the ballfields coaching my son and others in sports. This is my home. If you want to come and talk to me all you have to do is drive to my office and talk to me.

Third, I’m a fighter. Anyone who knows me will tell you I’m a fighter. I’ve been fighting for my clients for over 35 years now and when the insurance industry sees my name they know they are in for a fight. We are not afraid to take a case to court and go to trial and that makes a difference in how the insurance industry deals with us.

Fourth, we know how trauma affects the human body and we can assist you in getting the appropriate treatment for your injury. Many injuries go undiagnosed and untreated because injured people don’t see doctors who are trained to deal with trauma. Your primary care doctor is not a trauma specialist and many times specialized medical care is needed.

Fifth, we know how to gather and preserve evidence to put your case forward in the best possible light. Dont think for a minute that the insurance company isnt building a case against you. Every time they talk to you they are trying to get you to say something that hurts your case. That’s why it’s best to have an attorney speaking for you.

Lastly, it’s free. We don’t charge you to talk to you about your case. We’d love to hear from you so why not call us now? 888-WE FIGHT

126,000 Mercedes Vehicles Recalled for Airbag Defect

Amid numerous automobile recalls, Mercedes Benz has just added several of their vehicles to the list. The automaker announced that it would be recalling 126,000 vehicles in the United States after reports were made of an airbag defect that either caused the device to deploy when no accident had occurred or caused the device’s failure to deploy during a collision.

In 2013, Mercedes found the same defect in a number of their vehicles across Europe, but fixed the problem promptly. However, last year, the same defect began to be reported in the United States. After an investigation by Mercedes, the automaker determined a malfunction in the control unit was causing the airbag to be defective and had affected cars in the United States.

The models included in the recall are the 2008 and 2009 C-300, C-350 and C-63 as well as the 2010 GLK 4-matic. Although Mercedes has not announced when the recall will officially begin, they have stated that no serious injuries have occurred as a result of the defect so far.

Attorneys Bailey and Johnson examine FOX13 cell phone video of traffic stop

After cell phone footage appeared on FOX13 that depicted what seemed to be a Southaven traffic stop, Lynnanne Nguyen spoke to attorneys John Michael Bailey and Tressa Valentine Johnson of John Michael Bailey Injury Lawyers about the officer’s forcible removal of the vehicle’s driver. While Bailey recognized that the driver did the right thing by pulling over and speaking with the officer, there are few things the driver may have been able to do to prevent what transpired.

Though the driver spoke to the officer, he did not comply with the officer’s multiple orders to exit the vehicle. While Bailey notes that the driver had the right to ask why he had been pulled over, Johnson added that “[y]ou need to comply with the officer.” Bailey further noted that it appeared that the steering column of the car was broken, which may have served as probable cause for the officer to remove the driver.

Little more is known about the incident than what is shown in the video, but Bailey and Johnson urge drivers who find themselves is similar situations to remain calm, listen to officers, and to remember any details you can—for instance, badge numbers, car numbers, and officer names. Though Bailey notes that you have the right to record the police, he states, “I would notify the officer.”
