Car accidents in Mississippi are usually very minor and don’t even result in vehicle damage to either party, but they can sometimes be quite serious and even fatal, where one or more people involved in the accident are catastrophically injured or killed as a result of the crash. While “fender benders” are usually not something that causes great concern, a cataclysmic accident can steal the life you once knew away from you and your family. If you were injured or a loved one was killed in a car accident, your life has likely changed significantly. You are now facing lost wages, disability, surgeries and ongoing medical care.
Common injuries that result from car accidents include:
– Fractured or broken bones
– Whiplash and other neck injuries
– Open and closed head injuries
– Internal organ damage
– Brain injury
– Spinal cord and other back injuries
– Cuts and bruises
– Loss of limb
– Wrongful death
After a car accident, the next thing you must do after seeking medical care for your injuries is to speak with with an experienced personal injury lawyer who can stand up for your rights when you are in a vulnerable state. The person(s) at fault for your accident will likely try to suggest that the collision was really your fault, to keep from paying your costly medical bills.
