MOST IMPORTANTLY - FIRST THING TO DO AFTER AN ACCIDENT
- Go to the hospital or immediately to your doctor to get checked out. Insurance companies will try to say later that, "you really were not that injured" if you don't seek treatment early on.
- You may feel worse several days after your accident so follow up with your regular doctor or the specialist of your choosing. We know the best doctors so call us immediately for a referral.
- Take pictures, if you can, or have someone else do it for you.
When someone is killed due to the negligence or wrongful conduct of another person, the victim is not only robbed of his or her life, but a family is robbed of a cherished loved one. This is particularly devastating when that loved one is the main breadwinner and the family’s ability to survive financially is put in jeopardy. A wrongful death claim cannot bring someone back, but it can help lighten some of the financial burden caused by their death, it can hold wrongdoers accountable, and it can ensure that the same thing does not happen to anyone else.
Wrongful death claims can be made by surviving spouses, children, parents, grandparents or siblings on behalf of the deceased. We have handled hundreds of wrongful death cases, and have achieved record setting verdicts and settlements for our clients whose loved ones were killed by the negligent or wrongful conduct of others.
Do not hesitate. Call us today. We have handles numerous Wrongful Death cases that have resulted in substantial verdicts and settlements. We can help you understand your rights, present you with a realistic course of action, and help you move forward.

Dealing With Insurance Companies After an Accident
Insurance companies look out for their interests, not yours. That’s why it’s important to have an experienced attorney on your side who knows how to deal with insurance companies, what questions to ask, what tricks they use, and ways to stay ahead of the curve. The insurance company will evaluate your claim by reviewing:
- Recorded statements by the police, drivers, and any witnesses
- Hospital records
- Photographs taken of the accident scene and injuries sustained
Insurance companies will seek to obtain the lowest settlement possible, despite cause for a larger settlement, so be sure to consult an attorney to fight for your rights against insurance companies. Lott Law represents clients throughout the entire State of Mississippi and Louisiana who have sustained personal injuries and/or property damage due to automobile, motorcycle or truck accidents including, but not limited to:

Bicycle Accident Lawyers -- Mississippi
Over the past few decades, interest in cycling has grown tremendously. As a result, more and more communities are increasing their efforts to encourage automobile drivers to “Share the Road” with bicyclists. By law, bicycles on the roadway are entitled to the same rights, and responsibilities, as cars and trucks. Sometimes, however, despite a cyclist’s best efforts to safely operate his/her bicycle on a roadway, he/she can suffer injuries due to the negligence of another driver. The majority of the time the driver of the car is at fault, but insurance companies often misinterpret the facts and try to avoid paying out claims.
Because cyclists are more exposed than motorists, cyclists generally suffer much greater injuries in collisions. A biking accident often results in serious injury and even death. In 2014, 720 people were killed in bicycle/motor vehicle crashes—nearly two people a day in the U.S. 2% of all traffic deaths are cyclists. For more information regarding bicycle accidents in Mississippi, visit the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration website at www.nhtsa.gov
Many times cyclists can suffer severe head injuries during an accident. A traumatic brain injury or closed-head injury occurs when the brain experiences a sudden physical impact. Cyclists who have suffered a brain injury during a collision can experience symptoms such as headaches, difficulty with focusing on or completing tasks, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, and changes in personality or energy level.
