What Compensation Can You Recover?

An accident victim may be entitled to many kinds of compensation, and it’s important to discuss your case with a Langston & Lott attorney to determine which applies to the specific details of your case. Langston & Lott attorneys are well-versed in recovering compensation related to car, truck, and motorcycle accidents, and mass tort claims. 

If you were partially responsible for the accident relating to a vehicle claim and/or the personal injury, Mississippi still allows you to claim damages.

Regardless of the party at fault, you may claim compensation for: 

  • Medical expenses include hospital visits, surgeries, therapies, follow-up appointments, medications, equipment, and anything that may aid in recovery medically, mentally, and physically. 
  • Property Damage is anything from your vehicle to the sneakers you were wearing the day of the accident and everything else lost or damaged. You are entitled to compensation. 
  • If your paycheck suffered after your injury or accident, you may be entitled to claim Lost Wages. If you needed time off from work for healing, appointments, or other reasons due to the accident, a compensation claim could result in reimbursement of these lost wages. 
  • Home Renovation Costs may be needed to update a home to accommodate a new disability or injury as a result of an accident or diminished earning capacity loss. 
  • You may experience the Loss of Enjoyment of Life after an accident and a catastrophic injury. 
  • Pain and Suffering due to the accident may affect one’s lifestyle after the accident, and compensation is a possibility. 
  • Humiliation and Embarrassment and the mental anguish they cause can leave lasting impacts on one after an accident. 
  • Scarring and Disfigurement leave physical reminders on the body of injuries from the accident. Talk to the personal injury attorneys at Langston & Lott.

Where Do Accidents Happen in Booneville?

Major roadways attract accidents. Booneville’s most dangerous roadways include highways and major city roads.  For example, U.S. Highway 45 runs through Booneville in Prentiss County, and continues north to Corinth, Mississippi, and is a major roadway to Jackson, Tennessee, and south to Tupelo and Meridian, Mississippi. Additionally, Mississippi Highway 4 and Mississippi Highway 30 run east to west through Booneville. Highways attract traffic, and traffic attracts accidents.

Insurance Companies and Claims

We understand how insurance companies operate and what we need to do to get you the compensation you deserve.

Protect yourself and your future claim by not speaking with your insurance company until speaking to a lawyer at Langston & Lott first. Inform your insurance provider you will communicate with them after consulting your attorney, especially if it is a personal injury claim. Your lawyer can manage the claim while you manage your health and recovery.

What to Do After an Accident

  • Get checked by a professional. Some injuries manifest later than an injury such as cuts or a broken nose. Consider the potential of head trauma, organ damage, or nervous system damage as possible reasons to visit a doctor if no visible injuries appear. 
  • Record the medical care you receive after the accident. Records can be used to build a case so you may receive the compensation relating to your injury.
  • Advocate for your health. Prioritize your health and make this clear to your doctors that your health is your priority after the accident. When your health could be at risk, don’t be concerned about health costs. The personal injury team at Langston & Lott may be able to help with the financial aspect of your recovery. 
  • Return to the doctor. Follow-up appointments are essential for your continued healing and future well-being, and these appointments may also help your case by providing additional documentation.
  • Contact your insurance provider by phone, website, or app, and file a claim. Additional information will be required if you are filing a personal injury claim. Keep all documentation about your medical assessments to yourself until you’ve spoken to a lawyer. 
  • Protect yourself and your future claim by speaking to a lawyer first. Your insurance company wants to maximize and retain profits. While your insurance provider may claim they have your best interests in mind, this may not be entirely true. Inform your insurance provider you will speak to them after consulting your attorney. 
  • Don’t talk about the details of your accident or health with others. Don’t apologize for your accident. Before discussing the accident in detail with others, speak to a professional about compensation possibilities. You may be entitled to financial compensation to help rectify the situation. 
  • Keep notes and a file on the accident. Compile all notes and documentation in one central location. The file may include medical statements, police reports, insurance claim information, driver and witness information, and personal entries documenting the incident and the accident’s effect on your health and lifestyle. Bring this documentation to your attorney meeting at Langston & Lott.
