How to Spot a Drunk Driver on the Road

Driving on the road is inherently dangerous no matter how safe you’re being. Even though you can control your own actions to keep yourself safe when you’re behind the wheel, you can’t control everyone else on the road. This is what makes driving dangerous no matter what.

What Should You Do After an Ocean Springs Car Accident?

After the first few moments of a car crash, it can be difficult to think straight or know what to do first. Accidents can be traumatic regardless of whether they are minor or major, and you may feel a wide range of emotions you may not be accustomed to—like panic and anxiety—that can cloud your thinking and make it difficult to focus and process thoughts as you normally would.

Who Is At Fault in a Parking Lot Accident?

Many people think that when they exit the highway and pull into the parking lot, the danger of an accident is over. It’s common for drivers to begin dialing or texting, unbuckling the seatbelt, and reaching for objects in the car even as they prepare to park. But parking lot accidents are more common than we might think.

The following fact should encourage us to think twice before driving carelessly in a parking lot: Nearly 20% of car accidents happen in a parking lot or garage—that’s more than 50,000 crashes a year. Thousands of injuries and deaths result from parking lot accidents each year, and roughly 40% of those deaths are pedestrians, especially vulnerable individuals like children, infants in strollers, and elderly pedestrians.

How Can You Support a Family Member Who Has Been in a Car Accident?

Car accidents happen every day. You might not have been involved in the traumatic experience, but your friend or family member was. When someone close to you has been in a car crash and suffered injuries and other damages, you’re likely wondering what you can do for them to be supportive.

Common Tactics an Insurance Adjuster Will Use to Reduce Your Claim

Common Tactics an Insurance Adjuster Will Use to Reduce Your Claim

If your insurance company acts in bad faith—uses tactics to avoid fulfilling their contractual obligations—it’s probably time to consider finding an insurance bad faith attorney you can trust to handle your case. Insurance companies hold a reputation for having deep pockets and no qualms about stacking the cards when it comes to business practices. Unfortunately, that reputation is often proved accurate. But those who know their rights also understand the importance of protecting them—and what to look for to know if your insurance company is trying to take advantage of you.

As we discuss these common tactics, keep in mind that not every insurance company or adjuster (someone hired to review and make assessments on accident claims) is out to cheat you out of the compensation you deserve. That’s why it’s important to be aware of these underhanded maneuvers—to help you separate honest companies and adjusters from dishonest ones.

Should I Give the Insurance Adjuster a Recorded Statement?

Published on Aug 12, 2021 at 12:26 pm in Car Accidents.

As a car accident lawyer in Biloxi, one of the most common questions I hear on a regular basis is: “Should I give an insurance adjuster a recorded statement?” People who have been involved in an auto collision often have so many other important issues to deal with that taking the time to research effective ways to handle insurance adjusters is just impractical and sometimes impossible. Clients who have questions about giving statements to insurance companies are usually dealing simultaneously with contacting car rental companies, fixing their vehicles, asking for time off work, and coping with painful injuries. This question can apply to other types of insurance as well, but the issue most frequently arises in car accident cases.

Do You Have Delayed Car Accident Injuries?

Do You Have Delayed Car Accident Injuries?

After a car accident, you might not always know right away that you were hurt in the collision. You could leave the scene thinking you were in a minor fender bender, but days later realize you have pain in your neck and head, and it turns out that you suffered from whiplash as a result of the collision. When this happens, you might not know what to do because you didn’t get evaluated right away.

You might not even associate your injuries with the accident right away if they start showing up much later. Even though they’re delayed, they are still injuries that you suffered from the collision. A car accident lawyer will be able to help you hold the person who caused your crash legally responsible for those injuries once you discover they were delayed.

How Will Your Lawyer Negotiate a Car Accident Settlement?

After a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you could be dealing with injuries and damages. The medical bills, repair costs, missed wages, and regular bills might be piling up and getting harder and harder to pay, especially if you can’t get back to work anytime soon. You shouldn’t have to worry about all those costs when you weren’t the one who caused the collision.
