What Should You Do If You've Been in An Accident?

Tips From Our Firm to Your Family
  • Q:Remain At The Scene

    A:Unless you are taken from the scene in an ambulance, you must remain to exchange information with the other driver/s. This is required by law; leaving the scene of an accident without doing so is a crime.

  • Q:Gather Evidence 

    A:If possible, take pictures of the scene, your car, and your injuries with your cell phone or a camera. Take notes of what you remember. Get the contact information of any witnesses and badge numbers of emergency personnel who may be called to the scene.

  • Q:Get Medical Attention

    A:Even if you feel you did not sustain serious injuries, see your doctor. Tell him or her that you were involved in an accident and get checked out. Injuries like whiplash may not be immediately apparent but can have detrimental effects if untreated.

  • Q:Contact Your Attorney

    A:In an injury accident, it is far too easy for the insurance company to undervalue, delay, or even deny your claim. Involve a Jackson car accident lawyer who can see to it that your interests are protected from the get-go.

  • Q:Never speak to an adjuster or insurance agent without counsel.

    A:Do not accept a settlement, admit fault, apologize for the accident, or provide any statements to the insurance adjuster or agent without an attorney. Doing so could jeopardize your ability to recover a fair settlement.

Common Causes of Car Wrecks in Mississippi

Every auto accident is unique and may have been caused by one or many factors. Some stem from driver negligence, while others may be outside of a driver’s control. Identifying cause will be an essential part of handling your claim, as this will help us determine who should be held liable (legally responsible) for your injuries or losses. Typically, the at-fault party’s insurance provider will pay damages, but we must negotiate or litigate for a fair settlement or award.

The following are potential causes of car accidents:

  • Driver error or driver negligence
  • Distractions to vehicle drivers
  • Failure to properly service or maintain a vehicle
  • Cell phone use
  • Aggressive driving and road rage
  • Driver inexperience
  • Fatigue/falling asleep at the wheel
  • Passenger distraction
  • Alcohol use
  • Eating or drinking
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Following too closely
  • Texting
  • Unsafe lane change
  • Speeding
  • Prescription drugs
  • Inattentive
  • Turning improperly
  • Physical disability
  • Improper passing or lane use
  • Defective auto parts

There are many other reasons that an accident can occur, including accidents on the job. If you were injured in an employer’s vehicle, you might also be eligible for workers’ compensation.

Recovering Damages after a Car Accident

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, recovering fair compensation is essential if you are to move on with your life. Serving Jackson and the entire state, our attorneys will work to accurately assess the losses you have experienced and may experience in the future.

There are typically three primary categories of compensation for auto accident claims:

  • Medical expenses and costs
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

You may also be entitled to attorneys’ fees and costs, disfigurement, embarrassment, loss of consortium, expert fees, loss of use of your vehicle, diminished value of your vehicle, and any other compensatory damage that can be causally linked to your accident.

Dealing With The Insurance Company

Insurance companies are not necessarily interested in protecting your interests. They have one goal in mind: saving money. Without an experienced attorney, the insurance company will almost always try to take every advantage they can.

If you are not represented by an attorney, the insurance company will most likely try to:

  • Take a recorded statement. The insurance company may ask you to make a recorded statement in an attempt to get you to say something that may damage your claim. Even innocent statements can be construed in a manner that you never intended.
  • Make a lowball settlement offer. The insurance company may offer you a quick check to settle your case, but that check may be for a small percentage of what your case is actually worth. Once you settle your claim, you are out of luck, even if your injuries turn out to be more serious than you thought.
  • Unreasonably delay your claim/payment. Insurance companies will drag their feet, hoping that you will either accept less than your claim is worth or do something that will damage your case, such as discontinue medical treatment. They understand the dire situation that you may be in, and the worst part is they will absolutely attempt to capitalize on your misfortune.
