Biloxi Lawyers Helping Clients Injured in Car Accidents
Auto accidents can cause life-threatening injuries
If you or a loved one is in a car accident, first seek medical attention. However, after your injuries are treated, you should also speak with a lawyer. While whiplash is one of the most common motor vehicle injuries, auto collisions often cause catastrophic injuries and even death. At Corban Gunn Van Cleave Law Firm, our experienced legal team has a well-earned reputation for getting results. Our Biloxi attorneys work diligently to serve clients in the Gulf Coast and throughout Mississippi. We review your case, provide you with an honest and straightforward assessment and determine the best way to help you obtain compensation.
What are the common causes of auto accidents?
Some accidents occur as a result of defective vehicles or equipment. Many happen as a result of drunk driving or driver distractions. Regardless of how they happen — and despite today's required safety devices, such as seatbelts, shoulder harnesses and airbags — tens of thousands of people are seriously injured as a result of automobile accidents every year. During unfortunate times like these, you need responsible representation from a dedicated injury lawyer. Our team of skilled lawyers frequently assists clients injured in the following types of auto accidents:
- Intersection accidents — When an accident occurs at an intersection, assigning fault can be difficult. If you suffer serious injury, however, determining liability is vital to your legal case. Our lawyers scrutinize every detail of your case to find out who is responsible and what legal options you have.
- Text/phone use accidents — Whether using a cellphone to text or talk or fiddling with a GPS unit, distracted drivers pose a danger to everyone on the road.
- Drunk driving accidents — Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol is illegal and extremely dangerous. If you or a loved one is injured by an inebriated driver, seek help from a competent accident lawyer.
Child passengers may suffer the worst injuries in an accident. Child car seats, even the safest and most technologically advanced ones, simply cannot protect children from the worst automotive accidents.
Types of injuries
In addition to damage to the vehicles and other property, injured drivers and passengers may incur substantial medical and hospital bills, lose wages and suffer severe physical pain and mental anguish. Common injuries that occur in auto accidents include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord and neck injuries, broken bones, burns, and amputations. Obtaining fair and reasonable compensation for such injuries requires a skillful and knowledgeable Mississippi car accident lawyer fighting on your behalf. Whether you suffer catastrophic injury or lose a loved one in a fatal car accident, our attorneys are ready to fight tenaciously for you.
How an attorney can help
Immediately after you suffer an auto accident injury, your time to file a lawsuit starts running out. In fact, in Mississippi, you only have three years to file a claim. The moment our attorneys take your case, we begin investigating the circumstances of your accident. Our lawyers gather evidence, contact witnesses, reconstruct the scene and calculate the total amount of damages. If you are in an accident with an underinsured or uninsured driver, we may be able to help you file a claim against your own insurance provider for compensation.
If you receive a lowball settlement offer from an insurance company, we move swiftly to see that your best interests are protected. Upon retaining our services, you gain the support of a veteran legal team that has extensive experience negotiating with insurance companies throughout the state.
