You may end up being eligible for compensation since he was trying to flee. Typically, in these situations, there will be some interplay between the compensation act and the insurance company. I would highly recommend that you reach out to a lawyer that has experience in both areas so that they can...Read more »

We had to file police report, get them to acquire the video and get the video sent to them. I keep calling the other driver insurance to get the status of the claim but he hardly ever... Read more »
A Mississippi attorney could best advise here, but your post remains open for three weeks. I hope your son and the other driver are okay.

Likely not, as most people are not put in jail for tickets. That being said, as long as you are still paying towards your older charge, you should still be good to go.

Assuming you have insurance, the insurance company should be able to fund the defense on this case (assuming that it's civil); otherwise, you will have to hire a private attorney to represent you. That being said, these types of cases are incredibly fact-intensive.
