ATTORNEY AT LAW
Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer for Mississippi’s People
According to the Mississippi Department of Public Safety, the overall traffic fatality rate for Mississippi drivers has been steadily decreasing since 1990. Despite this, every year, since 1993, there have been over 18,000 crashes that have resulted in injuries. These accidents occur for a variety of reasons. Sadly, most accidents occur because of one driver’s careless or reckless actions. For instance, drinking and driving is one major cause of car accidents every year. Over 7,500 drivers are arrested in Mississippi for driving while under the influence. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, many of these drivers are repeat offenders. In 2009, 700 fatalities occurred because someone chose to drink and drive. Yet, drinking and driving isn’t the only cause of accidents in Mississippi. Cell phone use, driver distraction, fatigue, speeding, failure to follow traffic laws, and road rage are other causes of car and truck accidents every year. If you or a loved one has been a victim of someone else’s negligence, an accident lawyer can help you recover money from responsible parties. Victims of car and truck accidents sometimes face long rehabilitation periods, burdensome medical bills, and may even have to take time off from work to recover from their injuries.

Our firm prides itself on providing an honest assessment of your case and pursuing your case using the most effective means possible—either inside court, or through the settlement process.
