Passenger Rights in a Mississippi Car Accidents
When it comes to Mississippi car accidents, passengers are in an unusual position An injured passenger is seldom accountable for the incident but is just as likely to be injured as the driver who caused it.
Car insurance coverage is required for all drivers statewide. In the event that a passenger is injured during an accident, the driver’s policy will be used to compensate the injured passenger for their damages.
Usually, filing a claim against an insurance provider results in nothing more than a low settlement offer that won’t even cover the victim’s basic medical costs. Anytime an insurance company representative makes you an offer, you should speak with an experienced personal injury attorney in Mississippi before you accept it.
