What You Should Know About Mississippi Car Accident Laws
Mississippi is a pure comparative fault state. This means you will be awarded compensation based on your degree of fault in the accident. For example, if an insurance adjuster finds you 40% responsible for the accident, you will receive 40% of the total damages awarded for the accident. Our knowledgeable attorneys can discuss your options and help you seek the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
What should you do after an accident?
- Take pictures of the scene
- Get the contact information of witnesses
- File a police report
- Get medical attention
It is important to seek medical treatment right away. If you wait, insurance companies may say your injuries were not caused by the accident. You should also write down whatever you can remember about the crash, including weather, time of day, order of events, and any other relevant factors. Determining fault is based on evidence, so it is important to have the necessary documentation to support your claim.
