Navigating the Claims Process After a Car Accident
Diamondhead car accident cases are treated under personal injury and negligence laws in the Mississippi Civil Code. The attorneys from the Morris Bart law firm know how these laws work and what it takes to prove a case under them. When we represent a Diamondhead car accident victim, we take steps that include:
Protecting Our Client’s Rights
We manage all communication to protect each client’s case and ensure the insurance company cannot use their own words against them.
Investigating and Proving Their Case
We gather evidence to support our client’s claim, investigating the accident to prove what happened and who is liable, as well as the value of the case.
Filing a Claim
We file the necessary paperwork and demand a just payout from the insurer who represents the at-fault driver.
Negotiating With the Insurer
We use proven negotiation tactics to work with the insurance company and attempt to reach a settlement agreement that provides just compensation. Our trial attorneys will also take the case to court if that is the best option for our client. We sometimes need to file a lawsuit to ensure that the insurer will offer a fair settlement or clear up legal issues that prevent us from negotiating a settlement.
We will seek to secure a payout that compensates our client fairly, whether that is possible in an out-of-court settlement or if we need to go to trial.
Valuing Your Damages Following a Traffic Accident
Our team puts value on a client’s injuries and losses as a part of handling their case and seeking a fair financial recovery on their behalf. This service requires us to gather evidence to understand the losses they experienced, including their intangible losses.
Calculating our client’s medical expenses and current lost wages requires us to gather the documents that prove these costs. We can also prove other related expenses using bills, receipts, and estimates. Future expenses and losses are more difficult.
We may need to call in experts to understand the cost of future medical needs and how long our client could miss work or if they will be able to return to work at all. Valuing the intangible damages our clients experience requires a different approach. These include physical pain, emotional pain and suffering, and more.
In some cases, our clients seek wrongful death damages under Miss. Code Ann. §11-7-13. You might qualify for these damages if your family member passed away from their Diamondhead car accident injuries.
Seeing a Doctor Can Help Your Case
Nothing is more important right now than healing from your accident-related injuries. When you see a doctor, you’re not only protecting your health; you’re protecting your case and your right to seek compensation from a liable party.
Our Diamondhead car accident team can use your medical records to establish your losses and seek fair compensation. These documents can help link your accident to someone else’s negligence, as well.
This is why it’s often recommended to see a doctor about your injury when you are in doubt about whether or not you may need the medical care. Additionally, follow through with your prescribed treatment plan so you can make your maximum medical recovery.
Time Limits for Filing a Civil Suit Based on a Mississippi Car Accident
There is generally a three-year time limit on taking legal action in a car accident case under Miss. Code Ann. §15-1-49. To build the strongest case possible, we like to get started quickly after an accident occurs. We must investigate the case, file a claim, attempt to negotiate an out-of-court settlement, and possibly take other steps before beginning the personal injury lawsuit process.
Reach out to our team as soon as your injuries allow for your free case review. A team member can speak with you while you are still undergoing treatment or staying in a rehabilitation facility.
