Our highly regarded law firm has been negotiating with insurance companies for decades. Located in Biloxi, Mississippi, we provide competent counsel to clients in Gulfport and throughout the state.

Mississippi insurance laws

Because MS is an at-fault auto insurance state, anyone injured in an automobile accident may seek compensation from the at-fault driver. In fact, the state also allows an accident injury victim to file a claim against the insurance provider of the at-fault driver. Following are the minimum required amounts of auto insurance coverage in the state:

  • $25,000 per person for bodily injury
  • $50,000 per accident for bodily injury when more than one person is hurt
  • $25,000 per accident for property damage

What happens if you are injured in an accident with someone uninsured or underinsured?

In Mississippi, your insurance company is required to offer you coverage for uninsured and underinsured motorists. In the event that you are involved in an accident with an underinsured motorist, you can file a claim against your own insurance company. However, since this type of action can cause your insurance company to treat you as a hostile claimant, you should consult with an experienced team of car accident lawyers. At Corban • Gunn • Van Cleave Law Firm, we know how to deal with the insurance company. Our attorneys work diligently to help you secure fair compensation.

An accident with an uninsured motorist can lead to debt

If you sustain a disabling injury in a car accident, you face costly medical bills and, possibly, extensive therapy. Depending on the extent of your condition, you may also be unable to work. As bills add up, you could find yourself overwhelmed by debt. Even if the other driver had no insurance, a skilled lawyer may be able to help you obtain compensation to cover lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.

Hit and run accidents

Accidents happen. However, a driver who hits a car or pedestrian is required by law to stop. If you are the victim of a hit-and-run accident, you may be concerned about obtaining compensation. However, even if you are unable to locate the driver responsible for your accident, a lawyer can help you file a claim against your own insurer.
