Damages That Can Be Recovered in Your Claim
The value of your car accident claim is the total sum of the damages owed to you. Damages are the costs you have endured because of the accident and your injuries, and they can be economic or non-economic in nature. Economic damage relates to tangible costs and non-economic relates to abstract costs. As your chosen Jackson car accident lawyers, we will work diligently to figure out every single damage you are owed and pressure the insurer to pay every cent.
You might be able to recover damages related to:
- Medical treatments
- Future medical care
- Lost wages
- Lowered income capacity

- Permanent disability or disfigurement
Car Accident Injuries You Might Have Suffered
Car accidents are traumatic in pretty much every sense of the word. Injuries can be physical, mental, and emotional. Your damages should reflect all of them, which is why it is so important to get a good understanding of all your injuries and how your life has been changed for the worse because of them.
Some of the most common injuries reported in severe car accidents are:
- Brain injuries
- Back and spine injuries
- Broken bones
How is Fault Determined in Mississippi?
Mississippi uses pure comparative negligence rules when determining how much a plaintiff can be paid for their damages. Under this set of rules, your recovery will be reduced by a percentage equal to your percentage of fault or liability. For example, if you are 20% liable for your car accident, then your recovery total will be reduced by 20%.
To make the most of your claim and pursue the best amount of damages, it is important to prove fault with convincing evidence. Mama Justice and our team of attorneys are nothing if not tenacious. We take pride in our abilities to investigate a crash, use evidence, and call upon outside experts for assists for complex cases. Everything from eyewitness interviews to police reports could be beneficial for your claim.
Statute of Limitations on Car Accident Claims
There is a three-year statute of limitations for car accident claims filed in Mississippi courts. The statute usually begins on the date of the accident unless there is a reasonable explanation as to why you didn’t at first notice the injury and its symptoms. When the three-year time period ends, you cannot file a claim without expecting it to be rejected outright by the court.
Why You Should Hire a Car Accident Lawyer in Jackson
Hiring a car accident attorney in Jackson should be at the top of your to-do list after being in a crash that was not your fault. Insurance companies use various strategies to smash perfectly valid claims. Without an attorney guiding your case and acting on your behalf, you could be far more vulnerable to their tactics and inadvertently hand them a significant advantage the moment you file your insurance claim.
Mama Justice recommends you hire a lawyer within a day or two of your crash. Even if you don’t think we’re the right fit for your case, we still suggest you find a law firm that is. Although, we’re really confident that when you speak with a member of our firm, you’ll know right away that we’re the team you want on your side, through thick and thin.
