Mississippi Law Outlines How Drivers Should Change Lanes Properly
If a driver who made an improper lane change caused your Harrison County traffic accident, the resulting injuries, and your related expenses and losses, the Mississippi Civil Code allows you to hold them responsible. You will need to prove they were at fault in the collision by providing evidence to demonstrate four things:
- The driver had a responsibility only to change lanes lawfully.
- They failed to follow proper traffic rules.
- Their failure led to a collision.
- You suffered financial losses as a result of the collision.
The first factor is simple to demonstrate thanks to Mississippi Code §63-3-603, which outlines the proper way to change lanes under Mississippi traffic laws. Under this statute, drivers are responsible for ensuring the next lane is clear, using a turn signal, and taking other steps before moving into another lane.
The second and third factors may be more difficult. If we represent you, we will gather evidence from several sources. This includes the accident report filed by law enforcement, accident reconstruction, witness statements, and more.
For the fourth factor, we gather proof of our client’s injuries and damages to calculate a fair settlement value.

Recovering Damages for Accidents Caused by Drivers Improperly Changing Lanes
Once we have the evidence to show the at-fault driver acted negligently while improperly changing lanes, we can approach their liability car insurance provider for compensation. We will present them with the proof of negligence and the documentation of your damages. We then request an appropriate settlement based on this evidence. It may be possible to negotiate a fair settlement at this time.
If it is not possible, we will need to consider taking additional steps to hold the at-fault driver responsible for their negligence, such as a personal injury lawsuit in civil court. If this occurs, we will present the judge and jury with the evidence we collected in your case and ask the court to decide if you deserve an award for your losses.
The recoverable damages in a Biloxi improper lane change accident may include:
- Current and future medical care and related expenses
- Lost income and benefits
- Diminished earning capacity
- Damages to the vehicle and other property damages
- Loss of services
- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Pain and suffering damages
- Other intangible losses
We also accept wrongful death cases. These are legal actions based on the fatal injuries suffered by a member of your immediate family. If you lost a loved one in an improper lane change accident, we can review your claim.
