The consequences that stem from a severe car crash can be life-changing. Your injuries, whether short-term or permanent, may prevent you from immediately returning to work. Your medical care costs may be outstanding, particularly if you don’t have health insurance. You may also experience prolonged pain, suffering, and emotional turmoil, forever altering the life you wish to lead.

The good news is that Jackson car crash attorneys at Mama Justice have a working knowledge of the insurance and liability laws in Mississippi, and we have familiarized ourselves with the problems that may arise from a serious auto crash.
Working with a skilled auto collision attorney can make a notable difference in your ability to successfully file a personal injury claim, pursue it, and deal with aggressive insurance adjusters. Car crash claims can be extremely complicated. Usually, more than one party may be held liable for the crash. Our car crash lawyers will aggressively pursue full and fair compensation from all negligent parties in order to assist you in securing the compensation you deserve.
Causes of car accidents may range from drunk driving, speeding, carelessness, distraction, disobeying traffic laws, failing to use turn signals, disregarding traffic or weather conditions, failing to stay in ones own lane, driving under the influence of drugs, applying makeup, fiddling with the radio or GPS system, or just not fully paying attention to the road.
Some common auto crash injuries may include:
- Broken bones/bone fractures
- Scrapes, cuts, lacerations
- Internal injuries
- Limb loss
- Spinal cord injuries
- Brain injuries
- Back injury
Major medical care costs can stem from any of these injuries. A trip in an ambulance can cost, at minimum, about $500, and can add up to well over $1,000 quickly. Even a brief emergency room stay can cost thousands of dollars in medical bills; a major crash can cost up to $200,000 just in medical care expenses alone.
Many car crash victims worry that they won’t be able to afford a skilled attorney. This is a common, yet damaging misconception. You can absolutely afford a skilled attorney to help you file a personal injury claim for compensation. In fact, you can’t afford to not hire a lawyer. At Mama Justice, we work on a contingency fee basis, which means you don’t owe us a dime unless we help you recover.
