Car Wreck Lawsuit including UnderInsured Motorist Claim against State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company – In another one of our recent car wreck cases, a personal injury lawsuit was filed in the Circuit Court of Prentiss County, Mississippi. The Plaintiff was a passenger in a vehicle traveling northbound on U.S. Highway 45 when a vehicle that had been stopped at the intersection of U.S. Highway 45 and Mississippi Highway 145 pulled into the lane of the vehicle in which the Plaintiff was riding, causing a motor vehicle accident. The Plaintiff suffered serious injuries, including a broken leg, in the collision. The lawsuit included a claim against the negligent driver of the other vehicle, whose insurance was insufficient to compensate the Plaintiff for her significant injuries. The lawsuit therefore also named the underinsured motorist insurance carrier State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company as a defendant so the Plaintiff could recover additional funds from the UM policy of the owner of the vehicle in which she was riding.
Rear end motor vehicle collision in Coahoma County, Mississippi – The Plaintiff was injured when his vehicle was rear ended by another vehicle on Highway 322 in Coahoma County, Mississippi.
