Passenger Vehicle Accidents Can Cause Serious Personal Injuries for Victims

- Neck and back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Head injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Limb amputations
- Lacerations and contusions
- Internal injuries
- Broken bones
- Soft tissue injuries

All injuries could require medical attention and could lead to lost wages at work. Vehicle repairs, car rental, and other expenses will also add up quickly.

Recoverable Damages in Biloxi Passenger Vehicle Accident Cases
It is not always easy to identify and document the damages you suffered due to your Biloxi traffic accident. Our injury attorneys know the expenses and losses incurred by accident victims and can apply that knowledge to your case. We can gather proof of your damages and seek compensation based on your losses. Recoverable damages in Biloxi traffic accident cases may include:
- Medical evaluation, treatment, and care-related costs
- Ongoing and future care costs
- Lost wages and benefits
- Reduced earning capacity
- Loss of services
- Property losses and car repairs
- Related expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Other intangible losses
According to Mississippi Code Annotated § 11-7-13, wrongful death losses are a particular class of damages for the loss of a loved one available to qualifying family members. Suppose your immediate family member died from their injuries or related complications. In that case, we might be able to recover your financial losses, such as funeral and burial costs, as well as intangible damages you endured because of the loss of your loved one.
Time Is Limited to Take Legal Action Against the At-Fault Driver
Mississippi law sets a statute of limitations on how long you can wait to file a lawsuit after a traffic accident. Under Mississippi Code Annotated §15-1-49, we usually only have three years to begin the legal process of challenging the at-fault driver in court. If necessary, we will name that driver as the defendant in a personal injury lawsuit in Harrison County court or another appropriate jurisdiction.
If we miss the deadline that applies in your case, you will likely lose the right to take the case to court. This could result in a settlement that does not compensate you for your losses or no compensation at all. We must follow the timeline established by Mississippi law if we need to escalate your case to civil court.
