Povall & Jeffreys, P.A.: Automobile Accident Attorneys Serving Mississippi
Car crashes remain one of the leading causes of injury-related deaths in Mississippi. In fact, Mississippi’s motor vehicle fatality rate ranked highest in the nation in 2007 and remains well above the national average today.
With over 60 years of combined experience, the attorneys of Povall & Jeffreys have been successfully representing the victims of automobile and trucking accidents to help them recover from injury and lost property. Helping you overcome the stresses and trauma resulting from an auto accident is our top priority. Here are just some of the ways our representation can help assist you:
- Thoroughly investigating your accident – Sometimes, accidents are caused by simple negligence by failing to watch the road. In other instances, they are caused by more reckless behavior such as driving while intoxicated or texting while driving. The circumstances surrounding your accident can affect the amount of recovery and potentially entitle you to punitive damages in the case of extremely egregious behavior. Our staff will provide a thorough analysis of your case and help you recover the maximum amount possible.
- Negotiating on your behalf – Having to negotiate with the other parties, their attorneys or insurance companies can be an intimidating and daunting task on your own. While Mississippi requires each driver to carry minimum levels of insurance, the insurance companies can sometimes be reluctant to offer full and fair compensation in order to properly reimburse you after an accident. Without proper representation, accident victims can be pressured into accepting settlement offers that are well below what they otherwise would be entitled to. The attorneys at Povall & Jeffreys provide you with a skilled advocate who will negotiate on your behalf to obtain the maximum amount of damages and reimbursements that you are entitled to.
- Holding the proper parties fully responsible – If you are involved in an auto or truck accident, there may be instances where are other parties beyond the negligent driver might be responsible. If a driver was operating a vehicle for work on behalf of a company, the employer might be held responsible too under certain circumstances. Whether it is a solo driver, one who acts as an agent for a large company, or an insurance company acting in bad faith, we will hold all responsible parties accountable in order to ensure that you receive the most compensation available for your accident.
- Helping you obtain financial recovery – Damages from a car or truck accident aren’t always limited to the costs of repairing your vehicle. If physical injuries are involved, you can be entitled to medical expenses, compensation for pain and suffering, lost earnings, physical therapy and rehabilitation costs, and potential punitive damages if circumstances allow for them. The knowledgeable lawyers at Povall & Jeffreys can assist you in a thorough evaluation of your claim to assist you in obtaining compensation for your accident.
