Proving Fault After a Car Accident in Gulfport

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

Compensation Available to Auto Accident Victims

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Property damage

How Much Is My Car Accident Case Worth?

From a legal standpoint, no knowledgeable and experienced attorney is going to tell you what your car accident case is worth right from the start. 

According to Mike Saltaformaggio, our founding attorney:

“Anybody who tells you a number on what your car accident case is worth is lying – we don’t have any ideas. You have to wait until the injured person finishes medical treatment in order to see where their medical bills are currently, as well as what type of treatment will be needed in the future.”

We advise clients all the time not to rush the process. Be patient. Once you settle, the deal is done, and if any other injuries or complications arise, there’s no turning back. Ultimately, it comes down to working with a team you trust. A team that’s handled these types of personal injury cases time and time again and knows exactly what they’re doing and precisely how to get you the money you’re entitled to.

When it comes to taking on insurance companies and pursuing the compensation and justice you deserve, our Gulfport car accident attorneys are here for you. We at 'MAGGIO LAW have significant experience providing top-of-the-line legal representation to get you the most out of your case. 

Trust that we’ll be by your side every step of the way.

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.

Your Time to Act Is Limited

If you've been injured in a car accident in or around the Gulfport, MS area, it is important to know you only have a limited amount of time to take legal action against the other driver. Under Mississippi's auto accident statute of limitations, you typically only have three years from the date of your collision to file a lawsuit in civil court. If you attempt to file a claim after this deadline expires, the court will almost certainly dismiss your case and you will be left with no other options to pursue compensation.

While three years may seem like a long time, from a strategic standpoint, it is important you get an attorney involved early on in your case to ensure they have as much time as possible to build a strong case on your behalf.

Free Initial Consultations Are Available

We are proud to offer no-cost, no-obligation consultations to local clients who are looking for legal assistance. During a sit-down with our attorneys – or we can conduct consultations remotely if you prefer – you can get more information about the potential value of your claim and whether or not the other party would have a good chance of defending itself in and out of court. It is just the first step in all the ways ‘MAGGIO LAW goes above and beyond to do the most for our clients and our friends.
