Building a Case Based On a Biloxi Intersection Truck Accident
A Biloxi accidents in intersection lawyer from the Morris Bart law firm may be able to help truck accident victims seek financial recovery following an intersection collision. This recovery is possible by filing an insurance claim or naming the trucking company as the liable party in a Harrison County civil court. We also pursue cases in other applicable jurisdictions in Mississippi and neighboring states.
When we build a truck accident case, we apply Mississippi law, assign liability, and pursue compensation to hold the liable party accountable. This service requires us to:
- Seek witnesses and interview anyone who saw the accident
- Obtain the police report and other relevant documents
- Work with accident reconstruction specialists to understand what happened
- Preserve and access other evidence often held by the trucking company
- Analyze your medical records with experts
- Put a fair value on your losses
Only after taking these steps can we begin to build an argument to support your insurance claim. The result is a request for compensation that outlines the case against the trucking company or another liable party with a proposed settlement value. They may not agree with this initial proposal, but a negotiated agreement is often possible.
Recoverable Compensation Following a Biloxi Truck Accident
Generally, many traffic accident claims settle without ever going to court. We are often able to negotiate a just settlement for our client with the insurer representing the trucking company, and they forward us a check that includes the agreed-upon amount. Only if they deny their policyholder’s liability, allege that our client contributed to the accident, or refuse a fair payout does this type of case usually go to trial.
The compensation available in these agreements or through a court award depends on the victim’s unique losses. It is impossible to give you an accurate estimate of what your case might be worth without documenting your related expenses and other losses.
Some common types of compensation available in truck accidents include:
- Pain and suffering damages and other intangible losses
- Current and future medical care related to accident injuries
- Other relevant medical expenses
- Lost wages, including benefits
- Diminished earning capacity
- Property damage, such as to the victim’s car
- Additional economic losses related to the collision
Time Limits for Holding the Trucking Company Accountable
While we do not always have to take truck accident cases to civil court in Harrison County to secure a payout, it may be necessary for some clients. Under Mississippi Code Annotated §15-1-49, we generally have three years to file the initial paperwork that begins this process. This stage is also when we name the trucking company as a defendant officially and take legal action against them.
There are also other considerations when it comes to acting early and aggressively in your case. Much of the evidence, from rest logs to onboard computer data to post-accident drug test results, is held by the trucking company. If this evidence is lost or destroyed, it could weaken your case significantly. We recommend acting quickly so your attorney can preserve it.
