Types of Injuries That Can Result from a Serious Accident

How Does a Serious Injury Claim Differ from a Regular Personal Injury Claim? 

Serious injury claims tend to be more complicated than regular personal injury claims due to a number of reasons. These include:

Types of Financial Compensation in Serious Accident Claims 

Depending on the severity of your injuries, you might be entitled to the following damages.

Economic Damages

Non-Economic Damages

In addition to this, you might also be able to seek punitive damages from the at-fault party – if they are found to have acted in a grossly negligent manner or without any regard for the safety of others. Depending on the circumstances, you might be awarded anywhere from 2% to 4% of the at-fault party’s net worth.

Mississippi’s Pure Comparative Negligence Law Can Affect Your Compensation 

Under Mississippi’s pure comparative negligence law, you have the legal right to recover compensatory damages from the other party even if you are found to be partially responsible for the accident. At the same time, the amount of compensation you are awarded will be reduced – depending on the extent to which you were responsible for the accident.

For example, if you are awarded a sum of $150,000 and you are found to be 10% at fault for the accident, you will only receive $135,000.
