MISSISSIPPI FAULT LAWS

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. 

If a court finds that you were 30 percent responsible for the accident, then your compensation will go down by 30 percent.

Pepper & Odom will help you figure everything out and determine the best course of action to get you the most money you deserve.
