Mississippi Auto Accident Attorneys Help You Get Fair Compensation for Your Injuries

Obtaining justice for car accident victims

Whenever you get behind the wheel of your car, you run the risk of being involved in an auto accident. Each year, millions of collisions occur on the road. Some of these accidents are minor fender-benders with little property damage and no bodily injuries, but some are catastrophic accidents that cause death or permanent disability to victims. At Cumbest, Cumbest, Hunter & McCormick, we hold the negligent party responsible for your injuries and fight for fair compensation.

What are the common injuries suffered in auto accidents?

Car accidents are a common occurrence. They can cause a wide range of damage, from minor personal injury and property damage to accidental death. There are many injuries you could sustain in a car accident, depending on the speed of travel, road conditions, and the location of the collision. Common auto accident injuries include:

  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Soft-tissue damage
  • Whiplash
  • Spinal cord Injury
  • Head injuries
  • Brain injuries 
  • Neck and shoulder injuries
  • Broken bones in the knee, hip, thigh or ankle

Being involved in a car accident can have far-reaching physical and emotional effects for an individual. You could sustain scratches and head wounds or you could end up with an amputated limb or a spinal injury and a permanent disability. If it was your loved one who was killed in a car accident, you will want to file a wrongful death lawsuit to recover damages for your loss.

A catastrophic auto accident can change your life forever. If you have sustained serious injuries in a car accident, you deserve to have quality representation. Our personal injury attorneys at Cumbest, Cumbest, Hunter & McCormick are ready to fight for your right to fair compensation for your injuries.

How is fault determined in a car accident in Mississippi?

Determining fault in an auto accident can be a challenging process. Each party in the accident has a different perspective on what occurred, and witnesses at different vantage points can have differing accounts as well. In the end, the party at fault in the accident is responsible for compensating the injured party for property damages and bodily harm.

Mississippi is a pure comparative fault state, which means that all parties to the accident are eligible for compensation in an auto accident. The money damages each party receives is reduced by a percentage equal to that person’s share of fault in the accident. For example, if you are 10 percent at fault in an accident with $100,000 in damages, you would receive $90,000 and the other driver would receive $10,000.

Protect yourself and assert your rights

A claims adjustor will contact you immediately after an accident and attempt to settle your claim as fast as possible for as little money as possible. While claims adjusters may have a passing knowledge of the law, they are not lawyers. Claims adjustors typically attempt to minimize your injuries and present the facts to make it appear you were at least partly at fault. They work for the insurance company, not you. You need someone to represent your interests.

Protect your rights and get the compensation you deserve by working with an experienced personal injury lawyer who knows the laws governing insurance companies and their tactics. Our attorneys are prepared to advocate for your interests and pursue fair compensation for you.
