Comparative Negligence in Personal Injury Cases
Different states have different laws in regards to the ability to claim damages for injuries based on who was at fault in an accident. Mississippi is a pure comparative negligence state, which means the defendant is liable for their percentage of fault. Even if you were the at fault party, you may still be able to claim damages from the other party based on their percentage of fault.
The opposing party will likely try to minimize or eliminate their liability for the injuries they caused, by attempting to prove that they did not cause the accident or injuries. Diaz Law Firm is aware of such tactics and will diligently argue your case to ensure the best possible outcome. This may involve calling eye witnesses, expert witness and accident reconstructionist.
