Car Wreck? Now What? Should You Hire An Attorney?

If you or a loved one was hurt in a car wreck in Mississippi here is what an attorney should do.  An attorney should ask lots of questions and have the heart of a teacher.  They should explain your options and honestly tell you if you have a valid claim.  They should tell you exactly what they will be doing and how long the case may take.  Many people I have spoken with are hesitant to hire an attorney because they “don’t want to sue”.  In most cases, a car wreck lawsuit is a fight against an insurance company, not an individual.  Trust me, the insurance company will have attorneys.

I know what you are thinking, “Of course an attorney is going to tell me to hire an attorney”.  This is probably true.  But I would like to explain why.

Your attorney should help you recover costs for damages or injuries after a bad car wreck.  Getting hurt in a car accident is bad enough, and having to fight with an insurance company that does not want to be reasonable can cause lots of anxiety.  An injured person may be entitled to payment for medical bills, lost time at work, future medical bills, future living expenses, and money for pain and suffering.  Make sure your attorney is willing to pull off the gloves and fight if the insurance company refuses to pay.

So after a crash, your first call should be to our experienced car accident attorneys in Mississippi.  We will openly and honestly work with you and the insurance company to make sure expenses are covered so you can live as comfortably as possible after a traumatic accident.
