If you or a loved one was injured in a traffic accident caused by a careless driver, you may be entitled to compensation. Mississippi’s legal system is based on pure comparative negligence, which means that proving a damages claim after an automobile accident might be difficult. Wherever possible, insurance companies endeavor to deny claims or reduce compensation. Even if you feel the other person is totally at fault, the insurance company will almost certainly attempt to blame you for the losses in order to save money.
