Jackson Car Accident Attorneys

Helping Victims of Auto Accidents in Mississippi

In 2020, Mississippi led the nation with the highest traffic accident fatality rate by population. According to statistics compiled by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), there were 752 deaths in Mississippi traffic collisions in 2020. With a population of 2.9 million, this came out to a fatality rate of 25.4 per 100,000 people – more than twice the national average of 11.7. Mississippi also came in second in the nation for the highest fatality rate per 100 million vehicle miles traveled, at 1.9.

With so many catastrophic accidents in our state, we must know what to do after a collision. In addition to seeking medical attention, one of the most important steps is involving an attorney. It is far too common for insurance companies to take advantage of claimants, delaying payments or offering settlements that will only cover a fraction of their losses. A Jackson car accident lawyer can level the playing field and seek a recovery that will provide everything a person needs to rebuild.

Car Accident Settlements & Awards

If you have been injured in an auto accident in Jackson, you may be entitled to financial compensation for the injuries you have endured. Mississippi is a fault-based state when it comes to car accidents. This means you can seek damages for all your losses from the party (or parties) that caused the collision.

A car accident settlement or award may include compensation for:

  • Damage to your vehicle
  • Medical expenses
  • Ongoing treatment or therapy
  • Medication and medical supplies
  • Lost earnings
  • Loss of future/potential wages
  • Emotional trauma
  • Pain and suffering

The vast majority of car accident cases settle out of court, but our team is always ready to go to trial if this is the best option for our client. This shows the opposition that we will do whatever it takes to find answers and accountability for the person or family we’re representing. From complex cases involving 18-wheelers to accidents caused by drunk or distracted drivers, we deliver the personal attention that each client needs.
