Is There Any Money To Get?

As the ole saying goes – you can’t get blood out of a turnip! The same principal is true when it comes to a personal injury lawsuit. The person who is at fault must have insurance or assets to get, or it is not financially worth the trouble of bringing a lawsuit against them. Otherwise, even if you get a judgment against them, you will never get compensated because they have no money to pay you. A good Personal Injury Attorney will be able to quickly determine is there any money to get.

Insurance is the primary source of money to recover damages when a person suffers bodily injuries. A good personal Injury Attorney will find all the available insurance coverage available, and often times there is more than one policy with coverage.

Show Me The Money

The civil justice system in the United States revolves around money.  I have heard it said that “If someone harms you, money is the language which is spoken to say ‘I am sorry.’” I must agree with that, for as an Attorney who specializes in Personal Injury, money is the way our clients are made whole, or at the very least compensated for the harm they have suffered from someone.  If you are involved in motor vehicle collision, there is a good chance in the State of Mississippi that the tortuous party will have minimum limits liability insurance, which is $25,000.00 per person and $50,000.00 per accident with $25,000.00 property damage.

Mississippi law requires that drivers to be insured if they are operating on the state roadways with those minimum limits. However, people often break the law and operate their vehicles without it. In that case, I would like to see a law enacted that ties the insurance with the vehicle tag.  In other words, to get your vehicle tag each year, you have to show proof of insurance.


The Smart Driver

If someone rear-ends you and causes you a great deal of damage, those minimum policy limits will be gone in a blink of an eye.  The smart driver carries underinsured motorist and uninsured motorist coverage which acts as additional coverage in case the person who rear-ended you does not have enough liability coverage to cover your damages.  I would say the smart driver carries medical payment insurance coverage as well.  These insurances should cover you if you are hurt in a motor vehicle collision through no fault of your own. Having these types of insurance coverage make the answer to the question “Is there any money to get” be YES. Read our blog to see if you have the right insurance coverage.


Getting the Money

Simply call the Law Firm of Pepper & Odom, for if there is money to be gotten, we will get it for you.  Insurance companies care about their profit margin, not you when it is time to pay claims. It is the insurance adjusters job to pay out as little as possible when a person brings a claim. The less the insurance company has to pay out, the more profits they get to keep. The job of a personal injury Attorney is to get YOU the most money possible, or as we like to call it – the maximum recovery.

Statistically, most claims can be negotiated and settled without having to go to court at all. However, it is just as important that you hire a law firm that has the resources to fight the big insurance company. Simply put, some Attorneys and law firms don’t have the staff or financial ability to go up against the big insurance companies. Pepper & Odom Law Firm does! So, when you ask the question “Is there any money to get” Our Injury Lawyers will find it if there is any.
