Car accidents are some of the most common ways that people sustain severe injuries and death every year. In 2016, there were 690 deaths from fatal traffic accidents across the state of Mississippi. In cases where a driver or car occupant is injured, they have the right to file a Mississippi personal injury claim for compensation. By contrast, where victims die from their injuries, they cannot pursue a claim for compensation themselves so family members may be able to do so on their behalf.
Car accidents, though, are not the only way that negligence can cause an innocent person to suffer physical bodily injuries and death. Other injury accidents like medical malpractice events, slip and fall incidents, or aviation accidents are just a few additional examples of ways that physical bodily harm and death can happen. People can be injured or lose their lives by the recklessness of others in several different scenarios and, if you are unsure what your legal rights are and if you have a case to make a claim for compensation, then it can be helpful to speak with a personal injury attorney who is experienced with personal injury laws.
Victims who reside in Mississippi can call on the Jackson car accident attorney Bob Germany for answers to questions about injury claims.
How Severe Do Your Injuries Have to Be to Call an Attorney For Help with a Claim?
There are no actual concrete rules as to how catastrophic the damages you suffered are which would warrant the use of a personal injury attorney. Typically, if you were uninjured in an accident and sustained minimal damages, an attorney may not be necessary to help you recover the costs of your losses.
If you were injured it is best to seek the assistance of a medical provider for an examination and for treatment. Since the cost of medical care is expensive, even if you only need one or two doctor appointments and follow-ups, this still costs money. When your harm was caused by someone behaving negligently, you should not have to pay for that treatment.

So injured victims are welcome to schedule a case evaluation at no cost where they can learn more about how to obtain compensation and if professional legal counsel is necessary.
