Common Causes of Car Wrecks in Mississippi

Thousands of Mississippi residents are injured in car wrecks each year, leaving them to deal with with massive medical bills and the uncertainty of where to turn for help. In 2018, Mississippi was ranked by the National Safety Council as the deadliest state in the nation to drive a car with 22.2 deaths for every 100,000 people.

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 the cause of the accident is 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 negligence
  • Failure to properly service or maintain a vehicle
  • Aggressive driving and road rage
  • Driver inexperience
  • Fatigue/falling asleep at the wheel
  • Passenger distraction
  • Alcohol or drug use
  • Eating or drinking
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Following too closely
  • Texting/Cell-phone use
  • Unsafe lane change
  • Speeding
  • Turning improperly
  • Improper passing or lane use
  • Defective auto parts

There are many other reasons that an accident can occur, which is why you need to hire an experienced car accident lawyer to thoroughly investigate your case.

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.

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.

If you were injured in an employer’s vehicle, you might also be eligible for workers’ compensation.

Simple Solutions For Complex Matters

At ‘Maggio | Thompson, LLP, we understand that being involved in a car wreck can be a traumatic and frightening event. Car accident litigation can be very complex, oftentimes requiring medical and liability experts. During this time, you need attorneys who are capable and have the resources available to fight these insurance companies. We can provide the level of counsel you need, and we do so without charging upfront costs. In fact, we only get paid if we recover a settlement or award on your behalf.
