Q: In Mississippi can you dispute a at fault claim if no witnesses

I was involved in an auto accident that involved a parked lightweight commercial lawn mowing service vehicle in the state of Mississippi on a residential Rd They had no insurance however I was considered at fault. I was the only witness. THey claim i hit the vehicle from behind, when i got out of hospital i looked at skid marks and they matched my story that i hit the vehicle on side The police report was adjusted after i told police what happened but still showed me at fault. no citations even though I was insured and the other individual wasn't and a commercial vehicle when asked the police officer about why he didn't give them a citation he informed me that he couldn't give a citation to a question mark because he did not know who drove the vehicle there.

A: You should consider speaking with an experienced personal injury lawyer about this matter. Just because you hit the vehicle from behind, does not necessarily mean that you are at fault. For example, if you turned a corner during the night (or even day) and the commercial vehicle was parked in a place to where it was foreseeable that someone would hit it, then the company that owns the vehicle may be considered partially at fault.
