Every driver on Mississippi roadways understands accidents can occur at any time. However, when you are involved in an accident because a driver failed to exercise proper care on the roadways, you could recover financial damages for your injuries. Drunk drivers, those who are speeding or drivers who simply fail to maintain control of their vehicles are responsible for hundreds of car accidents a year.
At The Franks Law Firm, PLLC we have helped accident victims who have been dealing with insurance companies who are unwilling to negotiate in good faith or have denied their rightful claims. This is a common tactic; insurance companies only make money if they can avoid paying as many claims as possible.
Injuries after a car accident can be masked by the sudden rush of adrenaline and it is important you seek immediate medical care. Make sure you are safe and whenever possible, take photographs and create a written narrative of what led up to the accident. Witness statements could also be invaluable to winning a personal injury case so be sure to get their names and contact information.
Further, do not sign anything given to you by an insurance agent without first consulting with an attorney. Often insurance companies will send out adjusters to offer you pennies on the dollar of what your claim is worth. Call The Franks Law Firm, PLLC to discuss your claim if an insurance agent attempts to get your signature or if they make an offer. Our offices are based in Ridgeland, MS and we serve clients across the entire state of Mississippi.
