If another driver caused your Jackson County, Mississippi motorcycle accident injury, you might be entitled to receive compensation. The state’s personal injury laws allow you to hold at-fault motorists responsible for their actions and recover an insurance settlement or court award. A Moss Point motorcycle accident lawyer from the Morris Bart law firm may be able to help.
We provide complimentary case evaluations for accident victims to ensure they understand their rights and have their most pressing questions answered. The Morris Bart law office in Pascagoula represents Moss Point, Mississippi traffic accident victims, including many motorcyclists hurt in a crash.
Damages May Be Available in Your Motorcycle Accident Case
When our team represents an accident victim, we use the personal injury provisions of the Mississippi Civil Code to seek and secure an award or negotiate an insurance settlement. We do not always have to sue the at-fault driver. It is often possible to convince their insurer to compensate our clients fairly by showing their policyholder was guilty of negligence.
If the insurer still refuses to provide a fair and just settlement, we will file paperwork and begin preparing for trial. Our attorneys will pursue compensation through a lawsuit when necessary.
Wrongful Death Actions
If your loved one died as a result of motorcycle crash injuries, Miss. Code Ann. §11-7-13 provides for the survivor’s losses in these cases, as well. This statute only covers certain immediate family members, though, and there are additional limits on the types of damages recoverable.
Our team will evaluate your rights if your loved one passed away from motorcycle accident injuries suffered in Moss Point. We will determine eligible family members and a fair settlement value based on:
- Medical care prior to the death
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of consortium
A settlement or award is specific to that case and depends on the victim’s expenses, losses, and other factors. It may be possible to recover financially for:
- Current or future expenses, including health care, motorcycle repair, and more
- Lost income, related losses, and reduced capacity to earn
- Pain and suffering and other non-economic damages

Morris Bart, LTD Is Proud to Represent Accident Victims in Moss Point
In a motorcycle collision and injury case, our attorneys investigate what happened and determine responsibility. After assigning liability, we work to gather the evidence and present a convincing case to the insurance company. The goal is to prove their policyholder caused the collision and will be accountable whether they agree to a settlement or decide to settle the case in court.
We also present the evidence of our client’s damages, which supports our case for fair and just compensation.
This process often leads to a negotiated settlement agreement. If not, we generally have up to three years to sue the driver who caused the accident under Miss. Code Ann. §15-1-49.
