According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 43,443 people were killed and an additional 2,699,000 injured in an estimated 6,159,000 police-reported motor vehicle accidents in 2005. Each year, thousands of car, truck, and motorcycle accident victims do not receive fair compensation for their injuries. In fact, it is standard practice for insurance companies to offer low initial settlements to victims. At Ingram│Wilkinson, an experienced car and motorcycle accident lawyer can determine the value of your case and help you obtain the compensation you truly deserve. Without such legal assistance, many victims are left responsible for most of the expenses resulting from an auto accident, even if they were not at fault. Serving Hattiesburg, Jackson, and other Mississippi communities, a car, truck, and motorcycle accident lawyer from our firm can help with your case. Contact our practice today for a free consultation.
The NHTSA reports that in 2005, an average of 119 persons were killed in motor vehicle crashes each day — an average of one every 12 minutes. Given the amount of time we spend on the road, a certain number of auto accidents are inevitable. Too often, victims are left bearing financial responsibility for an accident that was not their fault. At Ingram│Wilkinson in Hattiesburg, a car accident lawyer can determine the true value of your case and help you achieve a favorable outcome. Our motor vehicle accident attorneys will protect your rights and help you obtain compensation for medical bills, lost wages, physical pain and suffering, and emotional trauma.
Injuries: Car accident injuries can vary in type and severity, but many of the most common are quite serious. For example, motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of brain and spinal cord injuries. Serious car accident injuries may include:
If you have been involved in an auto accident, it is important that you seek medical attention immediately. Often, the full extent of a car accident victim's injuries are not apparent until days, even weeks, after the accident.
Causes: Many serious auto accidents are the result of cell phone use, defective automotive products, substance abuse, and reckless driving. Courts look to a number of factors in determining whether a driver was negligent. Some of these factors include, but are not limited to, the following:
We can help determine who is at fault and make sure you receive just compensation for your injuries. Our legal team will carefully and thoroughly investigate your claim; contact our Hattiesburg and Jackson, Mississippi-area car and motorcycle accident lawyer today for a consultation and case review.
With the help of qualified engineers and accident reconstructionists, our auto accident attorneys can gather ample evidence to show jurors what really happened and who is at fault. Our investigative team begins by surveying the car accident scene. We take photographs, measurements, and witness statements. When all the available evidence is collected, our reconstructionists then carefully review the findings.
We recognize that, if you have been injured in a car accident, there are many lawyers to choose from. However, what distinguishes our auto accident attorneys is their extensive experience and proven skill in this legal area, combined with their meticulous investigative talents. Early auto accident scene investigation may be integral to your lawsuit's success. If you have been injured in a car and motorcycle accident, contact a lawyer at Ingram│Wilkinson.
Note: Accident reconstruction is not required for every case. If a lawsuit involves a simple rear-end collision, it would not be in the client's economic interest to conduct a full car accident reconstruction. Accident reconstruction is useful in more complex cases, such as instances of vehicular rollover, seatbelt failure, or unsafe road design.
Although Mississippi state law requires drivers to purchase insurance so that they are able to pay for personal injury or property damage in the event of a car or auto accident, many drivers cannot afford or simply ignore this obligation. Similarly, many drivers choose to purchase the lowest amount of coverage permitted by law. These underinsured motorists are also unable to bear the cost of a serious car accident. The result is that responsible drivers are sometimes required to pay damages for an auto accident that was not their fault.
If you are involved in a car or motorcycle accident in which the at-fault driver is underinsured or has no insurance at all, you may be able to pursue a claim with your own insurance company. Accident victims should not be responsible for the negligence or carelessness of another driver. We can help you obtain compensation for your medical expenses and property damage. At Ingram│Wilkinson, we have the knowledge and experience necessary to help with your case. Our attorneys provide clients across the state with effective legal representation.
Crashworthiness refers to a motor vehicle's ability to endure a collision while causing only minimal injuries to its occupants. Automotive manufacturers have a legal responsibility to ensure that their vehicles are crashworthy. Our product liability attorneys also handle claims involving structural design flaws, tire tread separation and blowouts, seatbelt defects, air bag failure, roof crush, and defective fuel systems.
When a motor vehicle does not perform as safely as an average consumer would reasonably expect, the manufacturer can be held liable for a victim's injuries. Serving Hattiesburg and Jackson, Mississippi, a car and motorcycle accident lawyer at our firm is prepared to represent your case and take a stand against the motor vehicle manufacturers; contact Ingram│Wilkinson today for a consultation and case review.
All motorists have a responsibility to exercise a reasonable level of care when sharing the road with motorcyclists. However, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were 87,000 motorcycle accident injuries in 2005. Often, the driver of the other vehicle involved in the collision did not see the motorcycle before the accident, or until it was too late to avoid the collision. Our attorneys boast decades of collective experience and will work closely with motorcycle accident investigators and other experts to help you achieve justice.
Injuries: Because motorcycles do not offer the physical protection that cars do, motorcycle riders are much more susceptible to catastrophic injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken limbs, road rash, or even wrongful death.
Causes: Motorcycle accidents may be caused by a number of factors, including defective roadway design, poor weather conditions, defective products (tires, helmets, etc.), and the recklessness of other motorists.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 64,000 pedestrians were injured and nearly 5,000 killed in auto accidents in 2005. Tragically, children age 15 or younger accounted for more than a quarter of these victims. Pedestrian accidents may result in brain and spinal cord injuries, amputation, and even wrongful death.
Motorists have a responsibility to drive in a safe and observant manner and to adhere to all traffic laws. However, every day pedestrians are killed or seriously injured as a result of driver negligence. Often, drivers fail to notice a pedestrian in the road because their attention is diverted by a CD player, a cell phone, or some other distraction. Other common pedestrian accident causes include:
