Car Accident FAQs

After a car wreck, it is normal to have lots of questions about the future. You may wonder about your rights or worry about getting your medical bills paid. Since 1932, the attorneys of Chatham – Pittman, PLLC, have helped accident victims find the answers they need and secure the compensation they deserve.

Here in our car accident FAQs, we have answered some of the most common questions we hear when representing people who have been injured in motor vehicle collisions. While this site provides general information, there is no replacement for a free initial consultation where we can discuss your unique situation.

Q: Who will pay my medical bills after an accident?

A: The responsible driver's insurance company should pay your medical expenses, but it will not do so until the conclusion of your case. If you are having trouble getting compensated for your medical expenses, an attorney can help.

Q: The insurance company wants me to give a statement. Do I have to?

A: You are required by law to cooperate with your insurance company's investigation, but you should not give any statement to another driver's insurer without first talking to a lawyer. When we represent you, we will communicate with all insurance companies on your behalf to make sure your claim is handled properly.

Q: I don't want to go to court. Can I pursue a settlement instead?

A: You have the ultimate say over how we handle your case, and we can certainly pursue a settlement with the responsible party if you prefer to stay out of court. However, the best way to get a fair offer is to prepare aggressively for trial. Insurance companies know which law firms will accept an inferior settlement offer rather than try a case, and they know that we are not one of those firms. They take our trial experience — and your case — seriously.

Q: How much is my accident case worth?

A: Every case is different, and we cannot promise specific results. However, we can promise that we will relentlessly pursue every dollar of compensation to which you are entitled under the law. This approach has resulted in numerous multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements for our clients in Mississippi and Tennessee.
