Understanding Rollover Accidents
Any time a rollover accident occurs in Harrison County, the risk of injury to any occupants of that vehicle is high. Rollovers cause those inside the car to experience several impacts, even after airbags have gone off. These dangers could include hitting structures inside the vehicle or the passenger compartment of the vehicle itself collapsing on them.
There are several causes of rollover accidents. Some occur when a driver has to make a sudden maneuver to miss an accident, object in the road, or another hazard. This type of movement in a top-heavy truck, van, or SUV can cause the vehicle to flip.
Other rollovers occur when a vehicle runs off the road or another driver forces it off the road. The car may hit a guardrail or dig into the dirt on the shoulder, tripping the car until it falls over. In addition, a vehicle may roll when hit by another vehicle.

Morris Bart, LTD Represents Biloxi Accident Victims from Our Gulfport Office
In addition to serving Gulfport and Biloxi, our team has 15 offices to serve all the Gulf South, including Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, and Arkansas. If we accept your case, a Biloxi rollover accident lawyer from the Morris Bart law firm will not ask for any upfront fees or payments.
You will not need to pay us anything out of your own pocket. Instead, we work based on contingency, meaning we will receive our fee from the settlement or financial award we recover for you. Before we begin, we will clearly explain our fee schedule so that you know what to expect, and then we will handle the rest. If you do not receive a payout, we do not receive our fees.
Pursuing Damages in a Rollover Accident Case
In most cases we handle, we can file an insurance claim on behalf of our clients and negotiate a settlement that we feel fairly compensates them for their injuries and damages. However, occasionally we need to file a personal injury civil suit and prepare the case for trial. These cases may also end in a settlement agreement, but some go before a judge and jury.
The damages recoverable in an insurance claim or lawsuit are usually very similar. They include a wide range of losses and expenses the victim incurred as a result of the accident:
- Past treatment for injuries and any future related costs
- Lost income and reduced earning potential
- Property damage to your vehicle and other personal items
- Related expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Other non-economic damages
Timeline for Taking Legal Action in Your Car Accident Case
Under Mississippi Code Annotated §15-1-49, we have three years from the day your Biloxi rollover occurred to file the documents to begin a civil lawsuit against the at-fault driver. If we cannot reach a settlement with the insurer before this deadline approaches, we will need to prepare to take your case to court.
An out-of-court settlement may still be possible after filing a civil suit, but we cannot let the deadline pass without submitting the paperwork and ensuring your rights remain intact.
