Why Do I Need an Attorney?
Many auto accident cases require a skilled and experienced Mississippi car attorney for the following reasons:

The car accident is too complex to handle without an attorney due to the facts.
Often times it is unclear exactly what happened in a car accident, especially if there were no eye witnesses. What was the speed of each of the cars involved in the accident?  Did any of them run a stop sign?  Who got to the intersection first?  Can you answer these questions with certainty?  Barrett Law, PLLC can conduct a full investigation on your behalf and, if necessary, hire an accident reconstructionist to determine what happened.  Even if there is a preliminary determination of fault in a police report, police reports are frequently wrong or misleading. 

The process of identifying responsible parties can be complicated.
You know the facts involved in the accident.  Do you know who is legally at fault?  There may be issues only an attorney can resolve through the use of interrogatories and depositions.  These are written and oral questions answered under oath by the parties to determine who caused the accident.  The legal process in a Mississippi car accident lawsuit provides many tools for obtaining information to prove your case, but they are governed by technical rules regarding procedure and form.  Many Mississippi car accidents involve multiple responsible parties including other drivers that are negligent, public entities that fail to adequately design or maintain roadways and companies that manufacture defective vehicles or parts.  There are special rules and legal standards that apply to each of these types of parties.  Barrett Law, PLLC can ensure that all appropriate parties are identified and the specific requirements are met for pursuing a claim against all appropriate parties.

There are severe or numerous injuries.
Certain injuries such as minor sprains, cuts or bruises are often not complicated.  They will be treated, heal and go away.  However, there are injuries that are more complex and require much more extensive treatment and a longer recovery time.  Some injuries may require stitches and leave scars leading to the need for plastic surgery.  Broken bones may require surgery, pins, and extended physical therapy.  Many serious injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and internal organ damage require the gathering of large amounts of documentation and lifelong rehabilitative and supportive care.  For these types of complicated and traumatic injuries, you would be best served by utilizing the experienced Mississippi car accident lawyers at Barrett Law, PLLC.  We know what information is appropriate to provide to the insurance company and what questions to ask the doctor regarding your condition, treatment, diagnosis and prognosis for recovery.  We also have 75 years of experience handling cases where catastrophic injuries merit substantial sums into the millions of dollar to compensate a car accident victim in Mississippi.

The insurance company is not on your side and will try to avoid paying your claim or minimize the amount of the claim.
What is fair?  Are the insurance companies involved going to pay a fair settlement of your claim?  Barrett Law, PLLC has extensive experience with similar cases, jury verdicts and past settlements.  We will skillfully evaluate your claim and present a demand for settlement to the insurance company.  We will aggressively litigate your claim if the insurance company refuses to pay you the actual value of your claim.  It should not be surprising that insurance companies rarely offer what a claim is worth and frequently deny the liability of their insured.  The skilled legal team at the Lexington law firm of Barrett Law, PLLC will carefully investigate, gather evidence and develop an effective litigation strategy to help you obtain the maximum value of your claim.

Damages can be very difficult to quantify and prove to the insurance company or court.
Some types of damage are relatively easy to establish, such as the cost of repairing your vehicle or wages lost due to being off work.  However, the process of determining and proving other damages can be much more complicated.  If you suffer some level of permanent disability, a complicated economic analysis must be applied to determine the total value of your future lost income over a lifetime, which may need to be adjusted to present value.  Other damages are hard to calculate including pain and suffering, decreased enjoyment of life or loss of companionship and services of a loved one.  We often use economic experts to help a jury understand the value of these intangible losses.
