Ignoring Changing Weather Conditions While Driving Can Lead to Traffic Accidents
Every year, rain, flooding, and wet roads contribute to serious and fatal traffic accidents in Biloxi and across Harrison County. Drivers have a responsibility to slow down, navigate these areas carefully, and avoid unnecessary risks that could harm them or others. However, many ignore the risks and drive without heeding the change in weather conditions.
Weather can affect drivers in many ways, making it more difficult for them to maintain control of their vehicles, thereby increasing accident risk, according to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). If drivers fail to account for the effects weather has on driving and they cause a collision, the Mississippi Civil Code allows accident victims to hold them liable. This is often possible through an insurance claim based on their automobile liability coverage.
In some cases, proving negligence and liability and recovering compensation may require filing a personal injury lawsuit in a Harrison County civil court. To learn more about this process and to find out if you qualify, contact our law firm today.

Pursuing Damages in a Biloxi Weather-Related Traffic Accident Case
When a driver acts negligently and causes a car accident, Mississippi law allows them to be held liable. As a part of this process, the victims can recover compensation for the expenses and losses they incurred from the accident. If we represent you, our legal team will put a fair value on your losses and demand the insurance company compensate you fairly.
This could result in compensation that includes damages such as:
- Current and future treatment, care, and other medical expenses
- Current and future lost income and benefits
- Diminished earning capacity
- Property damages
- Pain and suffering losses
- Reduced quality of life
- Other non-economic damages
- Wrongful death damages for surviving family members
Mississippi Law Limits Your Time to Take Legal Action
Suppose the insurance company representing the at-fault driver refuses to agree to a fair settlement based on your damages. In that case, we may need to file a personal injury lawsuit that names that driver as the defendant. In most cases, this will occur in a Harrison County civil court for Biloxi traffic collisions.
Under Mississippi Code Title 15 §15-1-49, we generally have three years to take this type of legal action following a traffic accident. It is important that we meet the deadline that applies in your case. Missing this time limit could jeopardize your ability to take your case to trial to pursue compensation.
