Mississippi Car Accidents
Mississippi sees hundreds of thousands of auto accidents per year. On average, the state sees about 125,000 car wrecks that injure around 60,000 people annually. Sadly, over 1,000 individuals will lose their lives yearly in these crashes. Being seriously hurt in a car wreck can be an extremely scary experience. You may have sustained seriously painful injuries and incurred a lengthy hospital stay in the process.
Being stuck in the hospital is a monster all on its own. Being unable to move about freely, having to answer to nurses, doctors, and other medical professionals, and being stuck out of work and in a hospital bed, can be a difficult experience to endure. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may only be able to think about making the pain stop and getting the medical care you need to get better. Even considering the financial aspect of the situation may seem too stressful.
However, during such a difficult time, it is important to be able to determine how your accident happened–especially if you know it wasn’t your fault. If you’re under the impression that another person’s actions led to your injuries, a car crash attorney in Hattiesburg can help you recover.
By filing a personal injury claim with a lawyer, you may be eligible to collect financial compensation for the losses and damages you face in relation to your recent wreck. An attorney will build you a strong legal claim by thoroughly investigating your crash and its circumstances and speaking to any pertinent witnesses, third parties, and anyone else with important information related to your wreck.
Once your lawyer has all the information he/she needs, they will file your personal injury claim and negotiate a full and fair settlement with the insurance company. Without the help of a skilled lawyer, the insurance company may attempt to take advantage of you during this fragile time in your life. Unfortunately, insurance adjusters are trained to contact crash victims in the days and weeks after their accidents, when they are under the most physical and emotional stress and most likely to quickly agree to a lesser settlement. Don’t let this happen to you.
