Auto Accidents

Every driver operating a motor vehicle in Mississippi is required to follow the rules of the road set forth under Mississippi law. But all too often, drivers fail to exercise reasonable care and cause injury to other drivers or even the occupants of their own vehicle.

Automobile accident cases are not always easy to resolve as they may involve issues of liability, contributory fault, damages and competing insurance policies. Insurance companies for at-fault drivers, for example, are apt to contact the injured person as soon as possible, hoping to obtain a quick settlement. But the injured person typically does not know how to fairly evaluate his or her damages.

There also may be a question as to whether an automotive defect enhanced the injuries suffered by the injured person, giving rise to a more valuable product liability claim. An experienced auto accident attorney is required to handle these complicated cases. Our Mississippi auto accident lawyers have been repeatedly profiled in Super Lawyers magazine, and have a lengthy track record in helping accident victims recover the compensation they deserve.
