Building a Car Accident Case Based on Failure to Yield in Biloxi
If someone else’s negligence caused you injury in Harrison County, the Mississippi Civil Code allows you to hold that person legally responsible for your injuries, expenses, and losses. This legal responsibility applies to car accidents as well as other types of negligence accidents. Any incident that occurs due to careless or reckless actions while driving will likely support a civil case.
A motorist has a legal obligation to yield in several scenarios:
- Turning left in front of oncoming traffic at a green light or unmarked intersection
- When there is a stop sign or red light, and the driver is making a right turn
- When the driver approaches a yield sign
- When the driver is leaving a parking space, side street, driveway, or other location
If a driver failed to yield and you collided with them, or if they hit you because of their careless actions, you will need to collect evidence to prove what happened and document their negligence. The evidence in this type of case generally includes:
- The accident report filed by law enforcement officers
- Any video of the accident
- A survey of the accident scene
- Eyewitness statements
- Accident reconstruction information
- Your medical records
- Testimony from experts, as needed
- Proof of your losses and the value of your case
If we represent you, we will investigate your accident and build a case from this evidence or other available documentation of your accident and injuries. To show the driver acted negligently and is, therefore, liable, we need to use this evidence to prove:
- The driver had a responsibility to yield.
- The driver did not yield.
- Their failure to yield caused the accident.
- You suffered injuries in the accident and financial losses as a result.

Seeking Damages After a Biloxi Failure to Yield Traffic Accident
Most car accident cases do not require victims to go to court. We can often negotiate a settlement with the insurance company representing the at-fault driver without needing to file a personal injury lawsuit in a Harrison County civil court or any other jurisdiction. However, we will not accept a settlement that does not compensate you for your expenses just to avoid court.
If necessary, we will file a civil lawsuit and present an argument for holding the negligent driver accountable. We will seek damages that include:
- Treatment of injuries and any related expenses now and in the future
- Past income and lost benefits
- Reduced earning capacity for long-term injuries
- Property damages, including damages to your car
- Pain and suffering
- Other non-economic damages
We also accept wrongful death cases and seek damages on behalf of those who qualify. We could review your case for free if your family member died due to a Biloxi failure to yield collision.
You Have a Limited Time to File a Civil Suit If Necessary
If there is a problem reaching an out-of-court settlement agreement with the insurer and we need to take the case to court, we will do so. Our trial lawyers investigate every case and gather evidence as if it might go to court. If it becomes apparent that we will not reach a fair settlement without taking legal action, we are ready.
Mississippi Code Annotated §15-1-49 puts a time limit on how long we can try to reach an out-of-court settlement before we need to file paperwork, name the driver as the defendant, and begin a lawsuit. This limit is generally three years from the day of the accident.
