When to Contact a Motorcycle Accident Attorney About Your Case
At the Morris Bart law firm, we like to go to work for our clients as soon as possible after their accidents. This allows us to build a strong case by uncovering as much evidence as possible, including some evidence that could disappear later. Contact us as soon as your injuries reach their maximum improvement or are stable, and you have an idea about your prognosis.
In general, we usually have up to three years to begin the process of taking a case to court under Miss. Code Ann. §15-1-49. However, this is not normally necessary, and our attorneys are often able to settle our clients’ cases out of court much sooner than this deadline.

Recoverable Damages in a Bay St. Louis Motorcycle Crash Claim
The negligence laws in Mississippi allow accident victims to hold the driver responsible for causing the accident accountable for their actions. The most common way the Morris Bart law firm team is able to do this for our clients is through an auto liability insurance claim. We outline the facts of the case for the insurer and demand a payout that is fair based on our client’s losses. The damages we seek vary depending on the client’s actual losses and expenses but generally include:
- Treatment for their accident injuries, related expenses, and future medical needs related to the accident
- Lost wages caused by time out of work, and any related losses
- Repairs or replacement of the motorcycle, protective equipment, and other personal items
- Any additional related expenses we document during our investigation
- Financial compensation for the physical pain, emotional suffering, and other intangible damages the victim suffered
Alternatively, if your spouse, parent, or child died from their motorcycle accident injuries in Bay St. Louis or a nearby area, Miss. Code Ann. §11-7-13 may allow you to recover wrongful death damages. Our team can explain these damages in detail during your consultation.
Mississippi Negligence Laws Allow Injured Motorcyclists to Hold the At-Fault Driver Responsible
The Mississippi Civil Code allows accident victims to file a civil lawsuit against the driver who caused their collision, recovering compensation for their documented losses, including non-economic damages. This action can be especially important in motorcycle accident cases when injuries are often serious, and the victim may suffer long-term or permanent injuries and impairments.
Motorcycle accidents are a problem in Mississippi, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The IIHS reports that 41 motorcyclists died in Mississippi in 2018, comprising 6 percent of the state’s total traffic deaths. Many more suffered injuries.
If you or a loved one was one of the motorcyclists hurt in an accident, you might have a case for compensation. The team from the Morris Bart law office in Gulfport may be able to help you build a case and recover compensation through the insurance claims process. Our trial lawyers can also take your case to trial if necessary.
