Jones Law Firm Blog

If you’re going west on I-20 to Alabama, or heading up north on I-55 to Memphis, you are bound to see billboards for car wrecks and for injury lawyers; some specifically calling out truck accidents. These signs can range from showing a dramatic accident, to millions of dollars supposedly being won, to just having a lawyer’s number printed in a massive font. They can be quite obnoxious, and some truck companies have even tried to get these signs taken off the interstate. We know most of these signs are from “big box” lawyer corporations, but the signs do have a good point: an 18 wheeler truck ..read more

Yes and No You’ve probably seen people on TV or in movies claim they are going to sue someone for emotional distress after an incident or argument. Sometimes lawyers are even belittled for considering mental issues associated with a wreck or accident. But can you sue someone for solely emotional distress or mental harm? Like most cases, you have to investigate thoroughly to see if mental harm has been committed and if it can be proven in court. For starters, any accident or wreck is going to take a mental toll on your health. Laws can be confusing, insurance companies are hard to reach, and th ..read more

Will filing a claim increase my premiums? Filing an insurance claim can indeed impact your premiums, but the extent of the increase depends on various factors, including your insurance provider, the type and frequency of claims, and your individual circumstances. Most of the time after an accident, if anyone involved files a claim, then everyone involved will have their premiums will go up, regardless of who is at fault. How much of an increase in my insurance will a wreck cause? Depending on the damage done, like whether it is a minor fender bender or a total loss, and who was at fault, among ..read more

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU POST ONLINE – You never know who is lurking Almost anything posted via social media is public use, and you might not think twice of a video or photo of you hanging out with friends or traveling, but if you have an injury claim, these photos of you being “relaxed, happy, and fun” could be used as “evidence” that you are healthy and not injured. Insurance companies are digging through your photos, videos, and anything else to try and prove that you are fine, healthy, and fully functional, and that they should not be required to pay the full amount of damages. This is not som ..read more

How to talk to the police after a car wreck
Jones Law Firm Blog
by Baskin Jones
4M ago
The more accurate the police report, the more it helps your claim ALWAYS assess the situation after getting into a car wreck, and if there are any injuries, immediately call 911. But if there are no seeable injuries (or at least none that require immediate attention) you need to call the police. You might hesitate if the wreck is very minor or if the car has seemingly no damage, but something could still be wrong on the inside. The same goes for your body. You might not think you have an injury, but symptoms could take a while to show up. Plus, even in minor accidents, the other driver could ..read more

Quick Guide to securing key claims after a car crash Even small car wrecks can be traumatic, disorienting, and painful. You would think an insurance company would go out of its way to make sure you are fully covered and try to make you feel at ease.

You are legally required to have insurance, and they know it.  Because of this, people hire attorney’s to ensure they are getting everything that is ..read more

You’ve filed your claim. You’ve taken photos of the accident. You’ve received treatment from a doctor and documented everything. So why is your insurance taking so long to pay your claim? It’s easy to think that an insurance company will slowly start paying off your bills and that money will start trickling in. In reality, an insurance company has an adjuster to try and lower your claim as much as possible, and they will typically use one of two strategies: Quick, LowBall Offer: They know your accident is complicated and could cost them more money than you realize. They also know you have bil ..read more

We are in the business of protecting our clients and ensuring they are accurately represented in any accident or situation. Car crashes are traumatic events; however, and it can be hard to remember what to do in the event of one. That’s why we always say to DOCUMENT everything following a wreck, including the surrounding area. Although cellphones are critical to any documentation, (see our video here on documentation) there is one piece of evidence that is nearly irrefutable, and that is footage of the wreck itself. This can be provided through dash cams. Dash Cams can provide definitive proo ..read more
