Navigating Mississippi Car Accident Laws for Catastrophic Injury Victims

You’re cruising down a sunny Mississippi highway, music playing, windows down – pure bliss. Suddenly, a loud bang. Metal screeching. Glass shattering. The world turns upside down. Sirens wail in the distance, a stark contrast to the ringing in your ears.

A catastrophic car accident can leave you feeling broken, both physically & emotionally. The medical bills pile up, daily tasks become insurmountable, & the future seems uncertain. You deserve justice, & Mama Justice – MW Law Firm is here to fight for you every step of the way.

I am Missy Wigginton, also known as Mama Justice. When meeting me, some people ask me how I got my name. The answer: I have 2 sons. When they were little, we always had a yard full of kids. All my boyfriends called me Mama Missy because I ensured they were all fed and had plenty of cool drinks on those hot, Southern, summer days. Being a mama is one of the most rewarding &best jobs that God has ever blessed me with. I am also thankful that God put me in a position where He can use me to help others in very difficult times. I, too, have been in difficult times, the worst of which being when my 25-year-old son left this earth for his heavenly home. Through the trials and tribulations of my loss, God remained faithful. Losing my son taught me that all things that happen in life can be used for good. My job allows me to be Mama Missy not.only to my beloved children and grandchildren but to everyone who needs justice. Hence the name, Mama Justice.

Although I am familiar with many areas of law, I focus my practice on personal injury cases. I represent injured people in all types of wrecks, accidents and work-related issues. For many folks, a car crash or work-related accident has the potential to turn their lives upside down, leaving them unsure of which direction to turn. When this happens to you, my goal is to help you through your most difficult times and make sure that you are properly represented when dealing with insurance companies. I will take on the headache of dealing with insurance companies so you can focus on getting better. I will personally work your case and ensure that every client stays informed and is treated as a friend and family member here at Mama Justice.

The Weight of a Catastrophic Injury: Understanding the Impact

Catastrophic injuries are life-altering. They can include:

  • Spinal cord injuries (paraplegia, quadriplegia)

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)

  • Amputations

  • Severe burns

  • Permanent scarring

These injuries not only cause immense physical pain but also emotional trauma, depression, and anxiety.

“I never thought I’d see my child struggle like this,” a parent confided in us after their teen suffered a life-altering injury in a car accident. “The medical bills are overwhelming, and I don’t know what to do next.”

This is where Mama Justice steps in. We understand the immense burden a catastrophic injury places on you and your loved ones. That’s why we’ll fight tirelessly to recover the compensation you deserve to cover medical expenses, lost wages, & future costs associated with your injury.

Mississippi Car Accident Laws: Protecting Your Rights

Mississippi is a comparative negligence state, meaning fault is shared proportionally between parties involved in an accident.  A skilled Mississippi car accident lawyer can investigate the accident, gather evidence, and determine the percentage of fault that lies with the other driver.  This is crucial in maximizing your compensation.
