Holding the At-Fault Driver Accountable

Mississippi is an “at-fault” insurance state, which means the liable driver (and their insurance company) will pay for your medical bills and property damage after an accident.

Gathering the following evidence after a car accident helps protect these rights:

  • A copy of the police report

  • The other driver’s contact, insurance, and vehicle information

  • Any witnesses’ contact information

  • Copies of your medical treatment

  • Photos of injuries and property damage sustained at the scene

  • Footage from nearby traffic or security cameras
