How To Get Compensation After a Car Accident
Mississippi is an at-fault state for car insurance, so to get compensation after an accident, you must file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. That’s why it’s so important to exchange insurance information at the scene of an accident. If you are unable to do so, however, our attorneys have your back. We can help you access your accident report and gather all relevant information about the liable party’s insurance company.
Even if you don’t make a claim right away, the other driver’s insurance company may also contact you. This conversation is incredibly important because it is the start of your negotiations with the insurance company. As such, you should not talk to the other driver’s insurance company without an attorney.
How Should I Communicate with the At-Fault Driver’s Insurance Company?
Don’t try to negotiate with the insurance company alone. As a matter of fact, any time you talk to the at-fault driver’s insurance company, you should have your lawyer on the line. In some cases, our lawyer may be able to handle interacting with the insurance company for you altogether.
Although insurance companies may seem to be on your side, they have their own interests in mind. Insurance companies want to minimize their liability and avoid paying your claim – and they might blame you or jeopardize your legal rights in order to achieve this goal. That’s why you need your attorney with you every time you interact with the insurance companies in question. We are committed to you and your case and we truly have your best interests in mind.
Remember, never agree to give a recorded statement without consulting your lawyer first. Insurance agents may try to twist your words and take things you say out of context. If you speculate or get any details wrong, the insurance company may also take advantage of this to put your case – and your compensation – at risk.
How Our Attorneys Help
After a car crash, you may be facing medical bills, missed wages, property damage, and other accident-related expenses. Our attorneys help you manage these expenses by holding the at-fault party accountable.
We do this via negotiations, which we back up with a strong case and a willingness to go to trial if necessary.
