When Can You Sue For Compensation After An Accident In Mississippi?Mississippi Legal News
Car accidents are a major concern in Mississippi. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) reported that in 2016, the number of fatal car accidents that occurred in Mississippi was more than all other states in the country. Injuries from car accidents are also through the roof. If you have been in a car accident you may wonder how you are going to pay for all the damages you suffered or if you even have a case to file a personal injury claim.
Speaking with a Mississippi automobile accident attorney at Germany Law Firm, PLLC is a good place to start. One of our attorneys will review the details of your accident experience and advise you on your options. If you were not at-fault for the accident you shouldn’t have to bear the load of managing and paying for all the negative outcomes that result such as lost wages, property damages, and medical care.
When Is It Feasible To Pursue Compensation After A Mississippi Car Crash?
After a crash, if you were not the driver who caused the accident, you will have a strong case to move forward with a claim against the party who did cause the accident. When one person behaves in a negligent or reckless manner and their behavior causes injuries to other people they can be sued by those who were harmed. In Mississippi, you have the right to obtain compensation when another person behaved in a way that caused you injuries and damages.
After your accident, the information you can collect will be instrumental in putting together a strong claim. Taking pictures of the accident scene, speaking with witnesses and obtaining their contact information, as well as seeking treatment and keeping all documentation of treatment are important. These actions allow you to build a case with plenty of evidence proving that you were injured and it was the fault of the person you are suing.
Additionally, collecting this information is key because if you had any part in the accident, you may be able to show that you only were minimally responsible. This way, you will still be able to obtain compensation and only have it reduced by a small amount. In Mississippi, crashes where there are several people involved who were at-fault will be given a percentage of fault for the accident. Your final settlement will be reduced by the percentage of fault you were deemed to hold.
