Frequently Asked Questions

Car Accidents

1. Can I sue even if I was partially at fault for causing the accident? An injured person can still sue a negligent driver even if he is partially responsible for causing the accident, but the amount of the injured person’s recovery will be reduced by the amount of his fault.

 

2.  Will my auto accident case settle out of court? Probably.  The large majority of auto and truck accident cases settle before trial.

 

3.  How soon must I file a lawsuit? The general statue of limitations in Mississippi is three years, but the time to bring a lawsuit may be shorter for medical malpractice cases, cases against public entities, or suits involving intentional acts.  The time period can also change in cases where a minor is injured.  There are other exceptions to the general three year rule.  Every year people lose their right to recover damages by not filing their lawsuit in a timely fashion.  It is extremely important that you seek the advice of an attorney as soon as possible if you have a serious injury resulting from an auto or truck accident or if a loved one has died.
