Mississippi Car Wrecks
Mississippi residents are considerably more likely to be involved in an automobile accident and have serious injuries. According to statistics, over 22% of Mississippi motorists do not wear seat belts, and vehicle collisions are becoming more severe. Automobile crashes are the leading cause of mortality and severe injury in the state.
If you or someone you care about was hurt in a vehicle accident caused by another person's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. Because Mississippi follows a pure comparative negligence approach, bringing a damages claim after a car accident might be difficult. Insurance firms try to reject claims or minimize payouts wherever feasible. Even if you believe the other party is entirely to blame, the insurance company will almost definitely say that you are partially to blame to save money.
If you or a member of your family has been seriously injured in a vehicle accident or as a consequence of someone else's negligence, it is critical to protect your rights. Retaining legal counsel is the first step in the recovery process. We think that giving our clients high-quality legal counsel will help them recover from their injuries more swiftly.
