Maximizing Compensation in a Mississippi Car Accident Case
To succeed in a car accident case, you must prove that the other driver(s) involved caused your accident, but in order to do that, you must prove the elements of negligence since Mississippi law places the burden of proof on the injured victim. Negligence, which is the failure to use reasonable care which results in injury or damage to another, is the primary cause of most car accidents in Starkville. This means that the plaintiff must prove:
- That there was the presence of a duty owed by one person to another
- That the other person breached that duty by failing to act reasonably
- That the breach directly caused the injuries
- That they have suffered damages
For example, let’s say you and three other drivers are approaching a four-way stop from each direction in a suburb of Starkville. You arrive at your stop sign before the other three cars reach theirs. Mississippi traffic laws tell you that you let each vehicle go one at a time in the order by which they arrived at the stop signs, so you naturally expect for them to stop and proceed in order, one by one – meaning, in this instance, you get to go first. However, as you are almost halfway through the intersection, you notice the vehicle to your right did not come to a complete stop at its stop sign and has now barreled into front of your car from the side, causing your head to smack the window. This should be an easy case for you to prove, right?
But what do you do if the man who hit your car tells the police that you are the one that did not make a complete stop at the sign and smacked into his car? Now you are in the middle of the blame game. This is a prime example of when you should retain an experienced car accident attorney in the Starkville area to help navigate you through this ordeal, see if there were any witnesses, assert your rights, and develop the best approach for proving your case. However, without a skilled lawyer, you could fall victim to not only the accident, but the other driver’s conflicting story as well.
Your odds of asserting a successful case and being awarded the damages you need and deserve can increase with a skilled attorney representing you in a car accident case. If you suffer serious injuries, such as paralysis, your condition could result in future trips to the doctor, possible surgery, or even permanent disability.
