The first step in bringing a successful claim for damages after an accident is proving fault. The individual deemed responsible for causing the accident—or their insurance company—is legally responsible for compensating the person injured in the crash and any passengers involved. In Mississippi, the fault may be assigned on a comparative negligence basis, meaning that each party involved is allocated an amount of responsibility proportional to their actions leading up to the accident. This means that even if you were partially at fault in the crash, pursuing compensation from other parties might still be possible.
Once the fault has been established and liability accepted by all parties involved, it’s time to calculate damages—the amount responsible parties will pay out as part of a settlement or judgment in your favor. Determining what constitutes fair compensation can be complicated. It often involves taking into account medical bills related both directly and indirectly to the accident (such as doctor visits and physical therapy), lost wages due to missed work days, reduced earning capacity caused by injuries sustained in the crash, and non-economic losses like pain and suffering caused by physical or emotional trauma from the event. Our attorneys can help you determine the total cost of the accident.
Negotiating With Insurance Companies
In many cases involving motorcycle accidents, one or more insurance companies will often be involved in negotiating a settlement for those found liable for causing injuries. Insurance companies are generally well-versed in negotiating settlements and will use tactics to pay the minimum amount. They know how much they can offer before going to court, so they can avoid paying more than they feel comfortable with. That’s why any injured victims must involve an experienced attorney when entering into negotiations with an insurance company; our attorneys at Pickard Law are familiar with these tactics and will fight hard on your behalf throughout every step of this process.
