Call ‘Maggio | Thompson, LLP After a Crash
You deserve strong legal allies after being in a car accident that was not your fault. The people of Gulfport know ‘Maggio | Thompson, LLP to be exactly that and much more. Our entire legal team is here not only to create a powerful accident claim for you but also to show moral support that sees you through to the end of your case.
Proving Fault After a Car Accident
Mississippi uses at-fault liability rules when deciding blame and compensation for a car accident. Specifically, Mississippi is a pure comparative negligence state, which means you can demand compensation from another party in your car accident as long as that party is even just 1% liable for what happened. You can be 99% liable and still have the right to file a claim.
To keep your liability low – 0% is ideal – a good starting point is getting evidence that shows blame for the crash. This is where our Gulfport car accident attorneys can step in and take over. We can draw from decades of collective legal experience to find and utilize evidence in its many forms, all with the goal of getting you as much compensation as possible.
Evidence to use in a car accident claim might include:
- Dashcam footage
- Eyewitness testimonies
- Police and firefighter reports
- Driving records
Don’t Talk to the Other Insurance Company Yet
The easiest way an insurance company can avoid paying you a fair amount of compensation is by coercing you into saying the wrong thing and making yourself sound liable for the crash, even if you completely believe that you are not. Don’t be surprised if the other driver’s insurance company calls you shortly after the accident to get your side of the story. This is not your opportunity to do just that, though.
Instead, instruct the insurance representative that they will need to speak with your attorney for all future communications. Direct them to us or give us their contact information and we will talk with them. The idea is to let our lawyers communicate with the insurance company because our legal backgrounds won’t allow them to twist our words into making you seem liable for an accident that their policyholder caused.
