Causes of Car Accidents
There are many different issues that can result in a car accident. Often, collisions are caused by the negligence of a driver. In other cases, car accidents can be caused by external factors that are the result of third party negligence. Determining the cause of your accident is crucial in identifying the liable party and recovering compensation for your damages.
Car accidents can be caused by factors such as:
- Reckless driving
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Maintenance issues
- Road conditions
- Inclement weather
Car Accident Damages
Car accidents cause extensive financial and non-economic damage. Medical bills will likely account for most of the damages caused by your car accident. Regardless of the type of treatment you require, all medical care is expensive, and recovering from your injuries is most important. If long-term medical care is expected, your claim can account for future medical expenses as well.
The injuries that result from car accidents often leave victims unable to work, so a car accident claim can provide compensation for lost wages. Again, compensation for future lost income can be included in a claim as well.
Additional financial damages may include repair costs, transportation expenses, the cost of other services, and more.
In some cases, car accident claims can provide compensation for non-economic damages. Non-economic damages include pain and suffering and similar emotional and mental effects of a car accident. Although these damages are not tangible, compensation may be calculated as a percentage of the financial damage of the accident.
Is Mississippi a No-Fault State?
Mississippi is not a no-fault state. Instead, car accident cases are fault-based. Injury victims must file a claim with the other driver’s insurance company in order to recover compensation for their car accident damages. This will involve establishing evidence that proves fault, exhibiting the full damages that the car accident caused, identifying a liable party, and negotiating with the insurance company. If a party other than the other driver caused your car accident, it may be possible to hold them accountable as well through a separate claim.
