Jackson Uninsured Motorist Claims
Mississippi Law Requires Auto Insurance
All Mississippi drivers are required to carry auto insurance. Unfortunately, not all of them do. When you're involved in an accident with an uninsured driver, who pays your medical bills?
If you have uninsured motorist (UIM) on your own insurance policy, you can make a claim against your own insurance company. You can also sue the uninsured driver directly or go after the owner of the car.
Comparative negligence is a legal term for sharing the blame. Comparative negligence determines who receives compensation for losses and how much. Insurance companies may make you an offer based on what they think is your percentage of fault in the accident. Mississippi is a pure comparative negligence state: Even though damages may be reduced in proportion to the amount of negligence on your part, you can recover damages. Even if the accident is only 1 percent your fault, you can still make a claim.
