A Biloxi, MS, improper lane changes attorney with the Morris Bart law firm can help you seek compensation following a Harrison County collision. If you suffered injuries in this type of car accident, we will review your case at no cost to you. If a negligent driver caused your crash and resulting damages, we will fight for financial recovery with an insurance claim or lawsuit.
We Can Hold Drivers Liable for Improper Lane Change Accidents
If you or your loved one suffered injuries in a traffic accident in Biloxi because of a driver who made an improper lane change, you can hold them financially responsible. However, you will need to prove they were at fault in the collision by demonstrating four things:
- The driver had a responsibility to change lanes lawfully.
- The driver failed to follow proper traffic rules.
- Their failure led to a collision.
- You suffered financial losses as a result of the lane change accident.
The first factor is simple to demonstrate, thanks to Miss. Code Ann. § 63-3-603, which outlines the proper way to change lanes under Mississippi traffic laws. Under this statute, drivers must ensure the next lane is clear, use a turn signal, and take other steps before moving into another lane.
We Will Investigate to Uncover Evidence that Supports Your Claim
Our Biloxi lane changes attorney will gather evidence from several sources to establish that the driver who caused your crash made an improper lane change. Evidence may include the accident report filed by law enforcement, accident reconstruction reports, witness statements, and more. Our attorneys will also gather proof of your injuries and damages to calculate a fair settlement value.
We can tell you more about how our law firm approaches this type of accident claim with a free, no-obligation case review.

Recovering Damages for Accidents Caused by Improper Lane Changes
Once we have evidence showing 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 proof of negligence and documentation of your damages. We will then request a settlement and negotiate to secure fair compensation for you and your family.
If an insurance settlement is not possible, we can consider additional steps to hold the at-fault driver responsible, such as a personal injury lawsuit in civil court. If this occurs, we will present the judge and jury with the evidence and ask the court to award 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 fatal injuries suffered by a member of your family. If you lost a loved one in an improper lane change accident, we can review your claim.

Deadlines for Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Biloxi, Mississippi
There is a three-year deadline for filing most personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits in Mississippi, per Miss. Code Ann. § 15-1-49. However, individual factors could shorten this window.
If we do not file a lawsuit before the time limit passes, you may lose the right to take the case to court and seek a verdict and financial award. Likewise, insurance agents may use an expired statute of limitations to reduce or deny your settlement, knowing you no longer have the option of taking legal action.
We recommend contacting our team for assistance as soon as possible following your lane change accident. This allows us to meet legal deadlines and gives us the best changes to obtain and preserve evidence while the case is fresh.
