Mississippi Car Accident Attorneys Explain What Happens When Police Investigate A Car Crash

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Police called to the scene of a car crash are immediately swamped with numerous decisions to make. Accident scenes are emotionally charged and can be chaotic. Police must deal with people at their most vulnerable. Minutes pass like hours in the immediate aftermath of a crash, especially a violent crash in which people are severely and perhaps critically injured.  Police must quickly assess and triage the injured, perform life-saving measures, and provide first aid to those not critically injured. The officer must decide whether the ambulance must respond.

Once the dust settles, the officer will begin an investigation as to how the accident occurred.  The officer will interview the drivers if they are able, and any witnesses to the accident.  Witnesses may include passengers riding in the cars involved in the crash, pedestrians, and other motorists. Frequently, the officer’s investigation will be complete after reviewing the crash scene and interviewing witnesses.  The officer will then write a police report detailing the crash and listing any criminal or civil charges against a driver. If police suspect one of the drivers committed a serious crime causing the crash, then officers might call in a special unit, sometimes called an accident reconstruction unit, to determine how the crash occurred. An accident reconstructionist will respond if the crash results in a fatality and will also respond in other circumstances. An accident reconstructionist is a highly trained law enforcement officer who can use the physical evidence from the crash and make several determinations about what happened. The crash reconstructionist can determine the speed of the vehicles, the length of time the car was braking before the crash, and use the physical characteristics of the crash to determine what was going on inside the car seconds before the crash.

Technological advancements in motor vehicles also assist investigators. A vehicle’s data recorder aids an accident reconstructionist by storing pre and post-crash data. The data recorder is known as the “black box.” A car’s black box works like an airliner’s black box.  A vehicle’s black box records pre and post-crash speed, the amount of braking, the amount of steering, and as well as other factors.  Police must get a search warrant authorizing them to take the data recorder if the driver refuses to consent to police examining the item.

One thing police will want to know whether the driver or drivers were distracted at the time of the crash. The most obvious distraction is a cell phone. Most states have launched law enforcement campaigns to combat distracted driving. Many states now have “hands-free” laws, including Mississippi. Crash investigators will determine whether a driver was texting or using their cell phone immediately before the crash.

Where does the investigation lead? The police may charge a driver with a crime or a motor vehicle infraction if the investigation determines that a driver committed such an act. A person injured in the crash has a vested interest in seeing the police investigation through to the end.   Under Mississippi law, if a person injures another while breaking the law, the person who broke the law is “per se negligent.” The injured party might recover money damages if they were supposed to be protected by the law the other person broke that caused the crash. For instance, if a person driving under the influence of drugs or liquor crashes into another after swerving into the opposite lane and injures a person, the injured party does not have to prove the other was at fault. The injured party is certainly one whom the law was supposed to protect from harm.

Mississippi Personal Injury Attorneys Discuss Single Vehicle Accidents

Friday, May 6th, 2016

A recent single-car crash that claimed the life of one man serves as a somber reminder of the dangers of single-vehicle accidents. The accident early in the morning, on Highway 53. The vehicle left the roadway and caught fire. The driver could not exit the vehicle, and he perished in the blaze. The recent fatal single-car accident is, unfortunately, far from an atypical scenario. Single-vehicle accidents are deadlier than accidents involving multiple vehicles, accounting for sixty-five percent of all fatal motor vehicle accidents in the United States.

Because one-vehicle accidents are so often fatal, much effort has gone into studying the accidents and looking for the reasons why they happen. This research has led to a discussion of the things that drivers can do to prevent single-car accidents. Many single-vehicle accidents result from things that drivers have some degree of choice over, such as drinking alcohol, speeding, driving while drowsy, and texting or other distractions. The number of single-vehicle accidents could be reduced by drivers who make safe choices like staying sober so that they can drive home, calling a cab or riding with a designated driver if they choose to drink, getting sufficient rest before making a road trip, following posted speed limits, and choosing to focus on the road instead of allowing themselves to be distracted.

While some single-vehicle accidents could be prevented, research has also shown that other single-car crashes are caused by things that are completely outside of the driver’s control. For example, rainy weather brings with it slippery roads and poor visibility which can cause drivers to lose control. Mechanical defects can also cause sudden and unpredictable changes in vehicle function that could cause a driver to lose control.

Although some information has been gathered regarding single-vehicle wrecks, many individual single-car crashes remain surrounded in mystery. It is harder for investigators and authorities to piece together what happened to cause any given single vehicle accident than it is for them to make sense of the aftermath of a multiple vehicle collision. One reason for this is that in many fatal, single-car accidents, the sole eyewitness is the driver who died in the wreck.  When this occurs, it can be challenging for police and investigators to be able to say with any certainty what happened. Also, the victim’s  family receives no meaningful explanation regarding the loss of their loved one, which can make mourning their loss even harder.

Mississippi Automobile Accident Attorneys Remind Drivers to Use Caution on Wet Roads

Friday, April 29th, 2016

A recent accident in Arkansas claimed the life of a Mississippi man. The crash occurred when the man lost control of his car and collided with a vehicle on the other side of the road. The weather might have played a role in this crash. It was raining and the road was wet at the time of the accident. Other accidents occurred throughout the nearby area that day, and wet roads may have contributed to causing those wrecks, too.

Rainy weather and wet roads are just two of the possible hazards that drivers may encounter on the roadway. Wildlife and highway defects are other examples of things that can contribute to causing automobile accidents. Rain increases the risk of car accidents in two ways. When it is raining, visibility is reduced, and drivers may have difficulty seeing nearby vehicles, intersections, road signs, and other things that they need to see to drive safely. Also, road surfaces may become slippery, which increases the likelihood that a driver will lose control of his or her vehicle. Some road surfaces provide better traction in wet weather than others do, and when there is water on the road surface, hydroplaning may occur.

When it is raining, and even after the rain has stopped and the road is wet, drivers can implement a few safe driving practices to increase their chances of arriving at their destinations safely. Slowing down can give you more time to see vehicles, signs, and other things and it can reduce the likelihood that your vehicle will hydroplane. Stopping a car on a wet surface requires more distance, so leave yourself plenty of time. Also, leaving plenty of room between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you will give you more time to react to that vehicle’s movements. Keeping a safe distance is always important, but it is even more crucial when the road is wet, and there is an increased risk that that vehicle will hydroplane, swerve, or make other unanticipated movements.

Other road hazards include potholes and rough patches, poor roadway design, inadequate lighting, and confusing signs. Older roads are more likely to contain road hazards because road design has evolved to create increasingly safer roads. Inadequate road maintenance can also increase the risk of automobile accidents. Road surfaces experience considerable wear and tear, and highway budgets do not permit state and local governments to repair and resurface all of the roads that need attention right away, so unsafe conditions may exist for some time before work crews can make the necessary repairs.

Mississippi Automobile Accident Attorneys Reveal the One Thing You Must Never Do After a Crash

Monday, February 29th, 2016

A recent incident in Mississippi is a tragic reminder of the one thing that no driver should ever do after a car accident. A man was arrested after he left the scene of an accident that killed two people. According to authorities, the accident occurred when the driver rear-ended a vehicle, pushing it into oncoming traffic where it struck a third vehicle, killing a mother and her son. The driver left the scene, and he was taken into custody later on after being located at his residence. He now faces charges as the result of his actions.

Drivers should know that there is never a situation where a driver should leave the scene of a crash. Leaving the scene of an accident is illegal, and you could face fines, jail time, and loss of your driving privileges. If you are involved in an accident that damages a vehicle and you leave the scene, you could face misdemeanor charges. If the accident results in one or more injuries or fatalities, the penalties are even more severe.

In addition to the penalties for leaving the scene of an accident, there may be other implications of a driver’s choice to depart from the location of a wreck. For example, that driver’s account of what happened will not be heard by the police officers who respond to the accident. As authorities attend to injured parties and get wreckage out of the roadway, they also gather information about what happened. Police and accident investigators examine physical evidence, such as the wrecked vehicles and any items that they may have collided with. They also speak with the people who were involved in the accident and anyone who may have seen the accident about what they saw, heard, or otherwise experienced at the time of the accident. The absence of a driver from an accident scene raises questions about that driver in the minds of the law enforcement officers who are investigating the accident. The absent driver may also have information about the accident that no one else has, and unless that information is obtained, many questions about the accident may go unanswered.

In addition to being illegal, it is not safe for a person to leave the scene of an accident. Whether a person has an obvious injury or not, they are probably at the very least shaken and disoriented. They may even have serious injuries that are not yet apparent but which could prove life threatening if they are not identified and treated quickly. If you are hurt, remaining at the accident scene is the best way to ensure that you are treated promptly for your injuries, because you are likely to be transported directly from the accident scene to the hospital. If you do not think that you are hurt, remain on the scene until you are told that you are free to leave, and then go to the hospital or a doctor’s office for a thorough examination, which could detect injuries that emergency personnel at the accident scene may not have been able to detect.

Mississippi Automobile Accident Attorneys Discuss Pile-Up Accidents

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016

A third person has died from injuries that she sustained in a recent six car pile-up accident that had already claimed the lives of two Gulfport residents. The accident occurred when an SUV rear-ended the vehicle that contained the three people who have now died as the result of the accident at a stop light. Other vehicles collided with the wrecked vehicles in a sort of domino effect, until a total of six vehicles had crashed. In addition to the two people who died at the accident scene and the person who died in the hospital, two other people were injured in the wreck.

Most of the time when a driver goes out on the road, they share the road with other vehicles during their trip. Traffic conditions vary, from situations where there are virtually no other vehicles on the road to heavy traffic that sits at a standstill for minutes at a time as drivers inch towards their destinations. Pile-up accidents, or chain reaction accidents as they are often called, can happen in any kind of traffic situation. However, they are far more likely on busy roads during periods of heavy traffic. When an accident occurs on a busy road, other vehicles that are driving nearby may become involved in the wreck.

Heavy traffic is just one cause of pile-up accidents. When heavy rain, fog, ice, or snow results in low visibility, chain reaction accidents may occur if drivers do not see a collision in the roadway in time to maneuver around it. If the road is slippery, drivers may lose control of their vehicle and slide into an existing collision even if they are attempting to avoid it. Weather-related chain reaction accidents can ensnare many vehicles at once. For example, in Kansas City, a pile-up accident that was caused by snow involved twenty two vehicles.

Chain reaction accidents can be dangerous and deadly. Fortunately, drivers can take some preventative measures that could help them to avoid becoming entangled in them. It may seem obvious, but it is essential that you adjust your driving to weather and road conditions that you encounter as you go along. Surprisingly, some drivers do not make adjustments like slowing down when visibility is low, and this greatly increases the risk that they will have an accident or pile onto an existing wreck. Driving slow on slippery roads enables you to maintain better control over your vehicle, in addition to giving you more time to respond to the movements of the vehicles that are driving near you, changes in road conditions, animals in or near the road, or wrecked vehicles. In addition to adjusting your driving to the road conditions, you can reduce the risk that you will be involved in a chain reaction accident by leaving adequate room between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. A good rule of thumb is to give that vehicle a space of one car length for every ten miles per hour of your speed.

Mississippi Automobile Accident Attorneys Discuss Road Conditions and Accident Risk

Sunday, January 3rd, 2016

Have you ever noticed that certain intersections or stretches of roadway seem to be the sites of many accidents? For example, Highway 12 in Starkville is considered one of the most dangerous roads in North Mississippi. Unfortunately, not every dangerous intersection or stretch of road is redesigned or improved as soon as the increased risk of accidents in an area is apparent. Fortunately, Highway 12 in Starkville will soon undergo some changes that are likely to make it a much safer place to drive.

The Mississippi Department of Transportation plans to replace parts of the long two-way turn lane with raised, landscaped medians. Raised medians provide additional safety for pedestrians, and they also provide drivers with contrasting scenery that requires that they pay attention in order to know where to make their turns. The planned improvements to Highway 12 also include installing better traffic signals and reworking certain driveways. It is estimated that work on the Highway 12 project could begin in 2017.

Highway 12 is not the only dangerous road in Mississippi. There are other places throughout the state where, for any one of a number of reasons, an increased number of accidents occur. Some of these accident “hot spots” may be the sites of numerous accidents because of roadway defects. Roadway defects are not often discussed as a cause of motor vehicle crashes, but they actually do cause many accidents throughout our nation every year.

There are a variety of types of unsafe road conditions which can cause motor vehicle accidents, including design flaws, construction defects, and maintenance issues like potholes, cracks, and eroded shoulders. For example, Mississippi has many miles of roadways which require constant care and maintenance. While it is true that road crews work hard to keep up with the repairs, there are often more areas that need repair or maintenance at any given time than can be attended to promptly. Some roadway defects that could be considered design flaws under modern engineering standards were considered safe when the roads were designed many years ago. Redesigning roadways and doing the work that is needed to make them safer takes a great deal of time and money, so it is a continuous process.

When motorists encounter roadway defects, there is a risk that an accident may occur. Poorly designed on and off ramps, busy intersections, confusing signs, improper road drainage, potholes, cracked pavement, and inadequate lighting are just a few of the roadway defects that have been shown to cause accidents. Additionally, roads that are under construction are some of the most hazardous places to drive. Work zones are constantly being rearranged as road repair projects proceed towards completion. Lane closures, detours, and other changes can make traveling on a road one day a completely different experience than it was the day before.

Giddens Law Firm, P.A.: Help for Mississippi Accident Victims

When a road defect is fully or partially to blame for an accident, the state and local government entities that are responsible for maintaining the road could possibly be held liable for the victims’ injuries. Pursuing a claim against a governmental entity can be daunting and time consuming, unless you have a Mississippi automobile accident attorney as your ally.

Mississippi Automobile Accident Attorneys Talk about Rollover Accidents

Saturday, October 3rd, 2015

A recent accident involving a tractor trailer and an SUV illustrates just how serious rollover accidents can be. After the two vehicles, which were traveling in the same direction, collided, the SUV rolled over. The driver of the SUV and the four passengers were all injured, and one of them suffered a head injury so severe that she had to be airlifted to the hospital.

Rollover crashes often cause severe injury and/or death. Rollover accidents can be caused by many things, such as weather, road conditions, vehicle type, and driver skill. Fortunately, this means that there are multiple things that drivers can do to decrease the risk that they will be involved in a rollover accident, including improving their driving skills and choosing not to drink and drive.

In some rollover accidents, the vehicle that rolls over has physical features that actually made it more prone to rolling over than other vehicles on the road. For example, vehicles that are tall and narrow have the greatest rollover risk. The shape of these vehicles, which include many SUVs, vans, and pickup trucks, gives them a high center of gravity. This means that it takes less force to roll them over than it would take for other vehicles with lower, wider stances. Some vehicles have features like stability control, which reduce rollover risk. Stability control features detect overcorrections and compensate for them by braking automatically. Variable ride height suspensions help vehicles adapt to changing driving conditions and make automatic adjustments to reduce the likelihood of a rollover.

Excessive speed can cause rollover accidents, and, unfortunately rollover accidents that are caused by excessive speed are often fatal. Alcohol consumption greatly increases the likelihood that you will make poor choices while you are driving, which may cause you to lose control of your vehicle and roll it over. Approximately half of all fatal rollover accidents involve alcohol. Road conditions can play a role in rollover accidents, too, with rollover crashes happening more frequently on rural roads, where the dividing lines are not as clearly marked and where the speed limits may be high, even though there are curves.

Since many of the causes of rollover crashes are directly related to driver behavior, drivers can greatly reduce the risk that they will have a rollover accident by making better choices while they drive. Some choices that reduce risk include following posted speed limits, choosing not to drink and drive, choosing not to drive while tired, avoiding distractions, properly inflating and maintaining tires and loading vehicles properly.

Mississippi Personal Injury Attorneys Talk about Seeking Medical Care after an Accident

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

People who have been involved in automobile accidents often wonder whether they should bother with seeing a doctor after their accident if they do not feel any pain. As personal injury attorneys, we can say with confidence that regardless of whether you are currently in pain, it is crucial that you see a doctor as soon as possible after your accident.

There are several important reasons to get checked out by a doctor immediately after an accident. You may not feel any differently than you did before the accident, but your health could be at risk. Some of the injuries that often occur during car accidents, including some types of serious and life-threatening injuries, are not always noticeable right away. Doctors have training and experience in detecting and treating injuries, and they know how to examine accident victims in order to thoroughly assess their condition.

Another reason why you should see a doctor as soon as possible after you are involved in an accident is that it could cost you money later on if you do not. When insurance adjusters assess the value of a claim for injuries and damages that resulted from a car accident, they consider many variables. One of these variables is how long the injured party waited after the accident to get seen by a doctor. If you wait too long, it could be considered a “delay in treatment” which could reduce the amount that the insurer is willing to pay on your claim.

It is possible that your regular primary care physician may not be able to see you immediately after your accident. Fortunately, you have options. You can ask to be seen by someone else in their practice, go to an urgent care facility, or even get an appointment with a chiropractor. Because of the aforementioned insurance company calculation, being seen by a doctor as soon as possible is more important than being able to see a specific doctor. Likewise, do not forego a visit to the doctor because you do not have health insurance. Let the people at the doctor’s office know that you are not insured, and ask them what your payment options are. They may be able to find a way to help you with the cost of the visit.

Automobile accidents can cause serious injuries, some of which can take a long time to heal. If you have been injured in an automobile accident, see a doctor as soon as you can.

Mississippi Personal Injury Attorneys Discuss ATV Accidents

Tuesday, July 28th, 2015

A recent ATV accident in Pass Christian has claimed the life of one boy and has injured another. The thirteen year old boy who died in the accident had sustained blunt-force trauma to his head. This tragedy has shaken the entire community, and has brought the issue of ATV safety to the forefront.

ATVs are popular, in Mississippi and elsewhere. They have both recreational and practical uses, and they can be safe if riders wear helmets and ride properly. ATV accidents can cause many different types of injuries. Head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, are very common in ATV accidents because of the high likelihood of ejection. The risk of ejection has been reduced somewhat, because some of the newer ATVs on the market are equipped with seatbelts. ATV accident victims can also suffer spinal cord injuries, paralysis, neck injuries, facial injuries, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones. Unfortunately, because ATV riders and their passengers can be injured so seriously, fatalities are not uncommon, especially when riders or passengers are not wearing helmets.

Just as there are a variety of injuries associated with ATV accidents, there are many things that can cause ATV accidents. Alcohol is a leading cause of ATV accidents, which is not surprising since alcohol slows riders’ reaction times and impairs their judgment. Other ATV accidents are caused by riders who are inexperienced, or by those who are too young to be able to operate them safely. Sometimes, even experienced riders can get into trouble when they ride too fast or operate ATVs in an unsafe way. Challenging or unfamiliar terrain, unexpected obstacles, and defective ATV design or repair are other things which may cause ATV accidents.

When ATV accidents happen, accident victims who survive may be left with serious injuries that could involve a lengthy recovery. This can add financial strain to the physical pain that they are experiencing, especially if they have to be out of the workplace for any length of time. The sudden and unexpected nature of ATV accidents can leave families struggling to cope with the loss of a loved one while trying to manage funeral expenses, lost wages, and other costs associated with their loss.

Fortunately, ATV accident victims and families who have lost loved ones in ATV accidents can often recover for their injuries or loss. There are a few parties who may be fully or partially responsible for the injuries or death caused by any given ATV accident. For example, an ATV owner may have been negligent in some way, such as failing to maintain it in a safe condition. The person who was operating the ATV at the time of the accident may also be responsible for some or all of the injuries and damages caused by the crash. In some cases, land owners, ATV manufacturers, and companies that make parts for ATVs may be responsible for some or all of the injuries or losses related to the accident.

Mississippi Personal Injury Attorneys Want You to Know All About Settlement Offers

Saturday, June 20th, 2015

If you were hurt in a car accident or some other type of accident, you may be surprised to receive a settlement offer from an insurance company soon after your accident. In fact, you may feel relieved that the insurance company appears to be willing to settle your claim quickly and without issue. Unfortunately, all too many people misjudge these initial settlement offers as gestures of goodwill on the part of insurance company. With this in mind, some people accept the initial settlement offer because they feel that they may not get paid if they ask for more money. Others accept them because they fear that it will take a long time to resolve their claim, and they will be in a very difficult financial position should they delay their decision.

It is true that being injured in an accident can be very costly. However, it is also true that accepting an inadequate settlement offer could cost you even more. If you receive an initial settlement offer, be sure to read it very carefully. As you read it, keep in mind that someone whose interests are contrary to yours wrote it. In other words, the settlement offer that you hold in your hands is designed to maximize the benefit to the insurance company by convincing you to settle your claim quickly, and for as little money as possible

 If you have been involved in an accident, please remember that you deserve to be fully compensated for all of the damages that you have sustained, including harm to your body and/or property.  It is entirely possible that at this time, especially if not much time has passed since the accident, you may not know the full extent of your injuries and damages. In other words, accepting an initial settlement offer right now could put you at risk of settling your case for less than what it is truly worth.

Fortunately, you may choose to accept or reject any settlement offer. You can also receive qualified advice about whether to accept or reject a settlement offer from a seasoned Mississippi personal injury attorney. An attorney can help you understand what your case is worth and whether the proposed settlement offer would adequately compensate you for your damages. Your attorney can also take over the task of corresponding with the insurance company, and they can pursue a better offer if you choose to decline the offer that you have received. While your attorney negotiates with the insurance company and obtains additional settlement offers, you remain in control of which offer you will ultimately accept.

If you have been injured, qualified Mississippi Personal Injury Attorneys can help you obtain the settlement that you deserve.
