Mississippi car and trucking accidents are one of the leadings causes of death in our state. Accidents can cause a wide range of complex injuries and medical conditions. Common injuries include fractures, broken bones. Some of the most serious injuries occur to the neck and back. In medical terminology, the location of neck and back injuries are referred to as the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine.
In some instances, injuries are so severe that surgery is required to repair them. High speed collisions, accidents with pedestrians, motorcycle accidents, and drunk driving accident cases can result in catastrophe, such as a traumatic brain injury, closed head injury, spinal cord injury, paralysis, and in some cases wrongful death. Unfortunately, we’ve encountered clients over the years that have went through such injuries, but we made it our goal to get them the justice they deserved.

After an accident you may begin to receive letters and other correspondence from insurance companies and bill collectors. Part of our services include dealing with the insurance companies so you don’t have to. Insurance company adjusters want to talk to accident victims before they have time to consult a Mississippi car accident attorney. They routinely seek to take a recorded statement. Don’t be fooled. The insurance company adjuster is not trying to help you. He or she is trying to protect the negligent driver and may try to use your own words and statements against you. Never agree to speak to an insurance company adjuster until you speak with a Mississippi car accident injury lawyer first.
What To Do If You Are Injured In A Car Or Auto Accident?
After any car crash, auto, truck, motorcycle or other motor vehicle accident, you should immediately seek medical attention. Stay calm, take pictures and record audio and video evidence. Most cell phones can do all three. Document skid marks, road debris, and property damage. You should try and document events before vehicles are moved, before victims are taken out of their vehicles and before other drivers try to cover up what they did. Be sure to document any landmarks which can be reference points later. Don’t just create close ups.
You should not only take photographs of your vehicle but also document damage to other vehicles in the accident, even if the other vehicles were only incidental to the collision. Take photographs of damage to both vehicles, obtain names and contact information of all potential witnesses and if possible even obtain a written statement. Get license tags and names and other contact information of other drivers and copies of other eyewitness photos too.
Digital data recording is free so you can’t overdo it. Send the data to us by email at email@example.com when you call for our advice and it will make it easier for us to understand what you are trying to explain after a stressful event. After an accident, you should also contact your own insurance company and report the claim right away.
Many people try and handle accident claims themselves. Insurance companies have their own lawyers and so should you. Don’t be led to believe that an insurance company representative is going to resolve your case for the full case value unless you are represented by a qualified personal injury lawyer.
Important Facts To Know About Car Accident Claims
It is important to document important facts such as time, speed, and distance of the vehicles involved in an accident. This is where witness accounts and observations come in. You should also be aware of the common defenses in Mississippi car accident cases. In their attempt to reduce what you recover at trial, insurance companies often argue that the accident was a low impact collision or that the bodily injuries suffered were unrelated to the accident or pre-existing.
Our firm is dedicated to helping you and your family fight the insurance company’s tactics.
