Dependable, Dedicated Advocacy for Car Accident Victims in MississippiOne Call, That's All

It is no secret that car accidents can result in serious and/or fatal injury to those involved, but no one truly believes that such tragedy will come to them. Unfortunately, accidents can and do happen; even the most cautious, experienced drivers may be injured due to the negligent actions of another on the road.

At Richard Schwartz & Associates Injury Lawyer, P.A., we have seen the ways in which car accidents can drastically change a person’s life, physically injuring them and burying them in debt. Not to mention, they can take a substantial psychological toll on a person. If you or a loved one was the victim of a car accident, our Jackson lawyers can assist you in taking legal action against the negligent party that injured you.

Through a lawsuit, our legal team will seek your full compensation for any damages you have accumulated, such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of earnings, and more. With over 30 years of experience, our qualified legal staff at our several convenient locations are prepared to take on your case. We are just a phone call away — why wait to get started?

Call (601) 869-0696 to find out more about your legal rights in a free, no-obligation consultation.

Pursuing Accountability After a Car Accident

State law may grant car accident victims the legal right to financial compensation, but to actually obtain this compensation, you will need to establish negligence on the part of the other driver and provide proof of your injuries and any related damages.

Types of Driver Negligence

To establish negligence, it is often necessary to reconstruct the accident, conduct investigations, and consult witnesses. In many cases, particularly those involving auto defects, consulting an industry expert (such as an auto engineer) is imperative. An attorney can efficiently and skillfully carry out this detailed work on your behalf so that you do not have to worry about it.

For reference, a few examples of negligence often behind serious car accidents include:

Proving Injury & Damages in Court

When it comes to proof of injury and damages, an attorney’s help can yet again go a long way. They will know which documents you should present to the court, as well as how to calculate the amount of economic and non-economic damages to which you are entitled. The last thing you want to do is shortchange yourself.

Depending on the details of your case, you may be entitled to one or many of the following damages:

  • Hospital bills
  • Cost of disability
  • Physical therapies
  • Psychological therapies
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of earnings/earning capacity
  • Loss of quality/enjoyment of life

Please note: You may be eligible for additional compensatory damages. In a free consultation, our Jackson lawyers can discuss which damages apply to your case and provide you with a preliminary case valuation.

Important Deadlines for Car Accident Lawsuits

Per Mississippi Code § 15-1-49, there is a three-year statute of limitations on all personal injury actions, which means you only have three years from the date of the accident to file suit. What’s more, insurance companies often require that policyholders report any accidents to them through insurance claims within a few days or, at most, a few weeks.

Don’t wait to get started on your case; you will lose your right to recover compensation once the statute of limitations runs out.
