What type of compensation can you get in Mississippi and Alabama after an auto accident? It all depends on the extent of your injuries. Every accident is unique, which is why we treat every case individually and compassionately.

The person who causes an accident is considered “at fault”. Mississippi is an at-fault car accident state. This law seems simple, but Mississippi has another law that can change the amount of money you may receive in a case.
If you have some responsibility for what happened, your compensation will decrease. The court figures the amount using the “Comparative Negligence” rule. It calculates what percentage of fault belongs to you and deducts that percentage from your compensation.
