Car Injury Lawyer | Nicks Law Firm


We all have been there. Being annoyed at another driver for cutting you off, or speeding up to run a stop light. But sometimes when other drivers fail to follow the rules or to behave reasonably in traffic, they can cause collisions and you might find yourself the victim of a car crash. In Mississippi, and the entire United States, the most common cause of a car crash is the same – distracted driving. This is why you need a local and experienced lawyer on your side. An attorney who knows the local laws, the area traffic, and someone you can trust.

Gulfport’s streets and highways are crowded and busy, making car crashes an inevitable fact of life in the city. There are hundreds of injury accidents in Mississippi every day, and Gulf Coast area car accidents make up nearly a third (1/3) of all injury accidents in the state. Distracted driving endangers drivers, passengers, and pedestrians alike. Three quarters (3/4) of all Mississippi drivers reported that talk on a cell phone daily while driving, and one third (1/3) admit they text while driving. Of those calls and texts, a whopping 39% are work related. 


  • Distracted Driving – Think texting and playing on a cell phone while driving! It’s incredibly dangerous!
  • Drunk Driving – driving while intoxicated is negligent. If you have been hurt by a drunk driver call today.
  • Driving too fast for conditions – sometimes people just plain drive too fast or too reckless for the road conditions. This can be the basis of your case.
  • Failure to scan the roadway ahead – often times people forget to see what’s going on ahead of them on the road leading to the dreaded rear ender! If you’ve been rear ended, don’t delay, call today!
  • Vehicle vs. Pedestrian – sometimes vehicles hit people that are sharing the road. We can make a strong case for driver negligence if you’ve been hit by a car!
