Pursuing Recoverable Damages in a Biloxi Aggressive Driving Accident Case
When we file a car insurance liability claim on behalf of a client, we seek to hold the at-fault motorist accountable for their negligent actions that caused the collision. By proving the other driver caused the accident, we can often recover a payout for our client from the at-fault driver’s insurance carrier.
This payout could include compensation that covers a wide range of current and future damages our client suffered as a result of the accident. We will need to take steps to gather evidence to document these damages and losses during our investigation into the accident.
Some recoverable damages we commonly seek on behalf of clients include:
- Initial triage, ambulance transportation, and emergency department care
- Current and future injury treatment and related costs
- Ongoing care costs
- Current and future lost wages and benefits
- Diminished earning capacity
- Property damages
- Loss of services
- Pain and suffering
- Additional types of non-economic damages
- Wrongful death damages
Building a Case Based on Aggressive Driving in Biloxi
Aggressive driving often violates a number of traffic laws, in addition to specific laws against the act itself. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), aggressive driving occurs when one driver’s action “endangers or is likely to endanger” others. Therefore, aggressive driving could include almost any type of intentional violation of traffic rules, such as excessive speeding, running red lights, following too closely, failure to yield, and many more reckless actions.
If you believe an aggressive driver caused your Harrison County traffic accident, there may be evidence to point to this traffic violation or others. This evidence would support our insurance claim and help us hold the driver accountable for your injuries.

Proving Negligence in Your Biloxi Car Accident Case
Under the Mississippi Civil Code, you do not have to prove the driver acted in an aggressive manner or even acted intentionally. While this may be possible depending on the evidence in the case, all you need to do is show that their careless or reckless action led directly to your collision and injuries.
For example, imagine a speeding driver passed you on the shoulder and came back into your lane too quickly, sideswiping you. When this occurred, the speeding driver had an obligation to pass you in a safe and legal way. The speeding driver failed to follow the rules for passing another motorist, and this led to your accident and injuries.
Your attorney will still need to gather evidence to prove your injuries, prognosis, and losses, as well as document how the accident occurred. Then, you and your attorney could file your insurance claim and seek a payout based on the fair value of your case.
To learn more about this process, contact the Morris Bart law firm’s Gulfport office now by calling (228) 357-9621.
Deadline for Taking Legal Action Against an Aggressive Driver in Mississippi
Per Mississippi House Bill (HB) 1257 §15-1-49, car accident victims usually have three years to file a personal injury suit based on their collision case. This deadline applies to the filing of the initial paperwork to begin the lawsuit, generally in a Harrison County civil court for a Biloxi traffic accident. You will likely not be able to pursue legal action against the driver if this time limit expires. By contacting our team early and letting us handle your case if you qualify, we can ensure you meet all applicable deadlines in your case.
