Personal Injury Lawyers Serving Southaven, Mississippi

Southaven, located in DeSoto County, sits just south of Memphis, Tennessee. In 1970, Southaven had about 9,000 residents but now boasts more than 56,000. That makes it the third-largest city in Mississippi.

The rise in population in Southaven has also increased the number of times negligent parties harm others in motor vehicle accidents or due to faulty products or unsafe properties. These events are stressful for victims and their families, who suddenly have to deal with unforeseen physical, emotional, and financial burdens.

This could include other drivers, manufacturers, government agencies, business owners, and others. 

Helping Those in Southaven Who Have Been Affected by Car Accidents

The population growth in Southaven has led to busier intersections and more vehicle accidents. Accident rates statewide are some of the highest in the country. In 2021, Mississippi motor vehicle accidents resulted in 3,562 serious injuries and 772 deaths

After a car accident, you should take some essential steps as soon as possible to protect yourself and your right to compensation, including:

  • Check for injuries and call emergency services if needed.
  • Move to a safe location, if possible.
  • Exchange contact and insurance information with the other parties involved.
  • Take photos of the accident scene, vehicle damage, and any injuries.
  • Report the accident to the police and obtain a copy of the police report.
  • Notify your insurance company and file a claim.
  • Seek medical attention, even if you don’t feel seriously injured.
  • Keep records of all medical treatment and expenses.
  • Avoid discussing fault or admitting guilt at the scene.

The quality of the evidence you gather can have a significant impact if you decide to seek compensation. An experienced Southaven personal injury lawyer can help you collect evidence and build the strongest possible case on your behalf. 

Dangerous Intersections in Desoto County

Areas around Goodman Road are dangerous, including at the intersections with Airways Boulevard, Tchulahoma Road, Swinnea Road, and U.S. 51. The intersection of Church Road and Getwell Road is also hazardous. 

If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident, you must be able to prove the other driver was at fault to collect damages. To do so, your attorney must prove that the other party owed you a duty to drive safely, that they failed to uphold that duty, that their failure caused your accident, and that the accident led to damages.

Seeking Compensation After a Car Accident in Southaven

You can ask for economic and non-economic damages following a Southaven car accident. These forms of compensatory damages may compensate for things like: 

  • Medical expenses and rehabilitation costs
  • Lost wages and future earnings
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Costs for modifying your home or vehicle to accommodate your injuries
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Disfigurement or scarring
  • Loss of consortium
  • Wrongful death

Settling a personal injury case involves negotiating compensation out of court. This process normally takes a few months but can take more, especially if the claim is complex or involves multiple parties. Opting for a trial also extends the timeline but may result in higher compensation. Either way, your personal injury attorney will stand by your side throughout your case.

Helping Those in Southaven Who Have Been Affected by Truck Accidents

Route 51 isn’t the only busy area around Southaven. Interstate 55 also runs through the city, making it an active trucking area. Truckers often take breaks by exiting at Stateline Road, making that a dangerous area for people in smaller vehicles. Truck accidents present unique challenges in personal injury cases. These accidents often result in catastrophic injuries due to the significant size and weight of trucks. 

Seeking Compensation After a Truck Accident in Southaven

Liability in truck accident cases may involve multiple parties, including trucking companies, manufacturers, and maintenance providers. Federal regulations governing trucking add complexity to cases, as do higher insurance coverage limits and jurisdictional issues. 

Preserving evidence is crucial, requiring expertise in gathering black box data and witness statements. Successful litigation demands an understanding of the trucking industry and common accident causes. Skilled legal representation is essential to navigate these complexities and pursue fair compensation for truck accident victims. If your accident involved a truck, our truck accident attorneys can help.

Comparative Negligence in Mississippi Auto Accidents

Mississippi is a pure comparative negligence state. That means you can collect even if you were 99 percent responsible for an accident. When there are more than two parties, courts assign fault to all to determine who must pay damages. For example, a court may hold you 30 percent responsible for an accident, the other driver 50 percent responsible, and assign 20 percent to a trucking company. In this scenario, your damages are reduced by 30 percent due to your level of responsibility.
