An attorney who handles injury claims should be qualified to advise you on the following matters:
- What insurance coverages apply to your accident;
- Should a civil lawsuit be filed or should I settle;
- What are the consequences of settling and signing a final release; and
- How much is a fair settlement
The insurance company isn't necessarily looking out for your best interest. Be mindful that most conversations with the insurance company are recorded.
In Mississippi, if an insurance company can place any blame on you for the accident, you may not be able to recoup 100% of your claim. So be careful before discussing your claim with the insurance company.
At least seek the advice of a law firm who handles automobile accidents before you talk to the insurance company.
