Mississippi Car Accident Lawyer

When another driver on the road causes a collision, it is only right that they should be the ones to cover your expenses. Car accidents are not only dangerous but very costly for injured drivers.

After a car accident, the first thing you should do is call for help. The police and emergency medical personnel should be sent to the scene. You should also begin collecting evidence. Snapping some quick photos of the accident might provide you with much-needed evidence you can use later. Next, you should hire an attorney to help you file a lawsuit. Your attorney can help you draft your complaint and identify the liable parties. You may claim various damages, including those that came at a financial or emotional cost. A settlement may be possible in many cases, and your case might not need a full trial.

If you were injured in a car accident, you should speak to a lawyer as soon as possible. The person responsible for the crash should cover your damages. For a free case review with our Mississippi car accident lawyers, call Howe Law at (844) 876-4357.

What to Do After a Car Accident in Mississippi

After a car accident, the first thing you should focus on is getting help. Car accidents can be severe, and drivers might need medical attention right away. If the crash is serious, it may be illegal to leave the scene before the police arrive. Doing so might lead to charges for a hit and run.

If you can do so safely, you should exit your vehicle, take photos, and record videos of the scene. After law enforcement officials arrive and any injured drivers are taken to the hospital, the scene will likely be quickly cleared. When the scene is cleaned up, important evidence might be lost. Your photos and videos serve to preserve the crash site for use in court.

You also need to exchange information with anyone at the crash scene. All the drivers of any vehicles damaged in the collision should exchange information. You may need this information to file an insurance claim or a lawsuit. You also need the names and contact information of witnesses who can testify about the crash and back up your claims in court if necessary.

After a crash, you need to speak with a lawyer as soon as you can. Even if you are hesitant to file a lawsuit, our Mississippi car accident attorneys can review your case and advise you on all your legal options.

Filing a Lawsuit for a Mississippi Car Accident

Filing a lawsuit might be the best way to get all your damages from the accident covered. First, you need to determine who is to blame. Often, injured drivers are well aware of the person whose negligence caused the crash. However, many other drivers are left struggling for answers. If there were multiple drivers involved or if you were the victim of a hit and run, identifying the defendant might be difficult.

Our Mississippi car accident attorneys have experience handling these kinds of cases and know how to identify defendants who might have fled the scene. The incident should be reported to the police so they can investigate and hopefully find the other driver. Once that happens, we can begin your lawsuit.

Our legal team can help you draft and file your complaint to kick off your lawsuit. The complaint might be just the beginning of your case, but it is an incredibly important step that sets the pace for the rest of the lawsuit. You need important details about yourself, the defendant, how the accident happened, why you believe the defendant should be held liable, and what kind of relief you want from the court. It is important to get the complaint right the first time. While it is possible to amend the complaint if there are errors, this may be difficult or impossible, depending on how far along the case is.

Damages You Can Claim in a Car Accident in Mississippi

You may claim various damages as part of your lawsuit. Damages are the losses and injuries you incurred because of the crash. Many damages are economic and connected to a real-world price. Other damages are non-economic and, although they technically did not cost you any money, they deserve financial compensation. You can talk to our Mississippi car accident attorneys about how to calculate your damages and maximize compensation.

Economic damages include your medical bills, property damage, lost income, and possibly more, depending on your situation. Your medical expenses may be very high. Even with health insurance, the out-of-pocket costs of medical treatment can be more than many people can afford. If your car was damaged in the crash, the cost to repair or replace it might also be astronomical. Many injured drivers must take time away from their jobs to recover, and they unfortunately lose income in the process. You can claim any income you lose as part of your economic damages.

Your non-economic damages include more subjective injuries that did not necessarily cost you any real money. Common examples of non-economic damages are physical and emotional pain and suffering. While these experiences do not take a financial toll, they still may be financially compensated.

Settlements for Mississippi Car Accidents

If you are hesitant to initiate a lawsuit because of how long it might take to complete the case, you might instead prefer to negotiate a settlement. A settlement is an agreement between the plaintiff and defendant. The plaintiff agrees to drop the case and, in exchange, the defendant agrees to pay for the plaintiff’s damages. How much money is paid depends on the outcome of negotiations.

Our Mississippi car accident lawyers can help you negotiate a settlement in which most if not all of your damages are covered. Settlements often involve a bit of give and take, and you might end up with a settlement that does not completely cover all your damages. However, it might be the way to go if the settlement adequately covers your expenses and you are not left with debts you cannot pay for. Our attorneys can help you negotiate and make a final decision.

“This business helped me so much when I had my accident.”

This business helped me so much when I had my accident. I really did not know how to handle what I needed to do to take care of myself. When I contacted this law firm, they gave me a case manager. Her name was Sheila Hess. Sheila was amazing!! She handled all of my needs with the utmost of care and privacy. Sheila was always very professional and kind. I would totally recommend this business to my friends and hope that they would be lucky enough to get to work with Sheila.

Our case took a while and was a very long process, but this law firm took very good care of us. They made sure that we received all of the medical care that we needed and guided us every step of the way. This was especially true when the unexpected pandemic started and challenged all of us with the many adjustments we had to make.
