Damages Include Expenses and Losses You Suffered in Your Waveland Motorcycle Crash
After a motorcycle collision, we can hold the negligent driver responsible by filing a lawsuit or liability claim and seek compensation for the injured motorcyclist’s damages. These damages vary from case to case, both in value and in the types of damages. This commonly includes:
Financial Expenses & Losses
After a motorcycle accident, many injury victims worry about how they’re going to pay their bills.This includes the added medical care costs and related expenses. Additionally, lost wages due to missed time at work following an accident. These expenses and losses are recoverable.
Intangible or non-economic damages include the losses you suffered that do not have a direct monetary value. This includes your physical suffering, emotional pain, distress, loss of quality of life, and more.
Wrongful Death Cases
Unfortunately, many motorcyclists suffer terminal injuries or otherwise pass away as a result of the accident. If your family member has passed away due to the motorcycle collision, our team may be able to use the provisions provided by Miss. Code Ann. § 11-7-13 to hold the other driver accountable and recover wrongful death damages.

Motorcycle Accidents Are Among the Most Deadly Traffic Crashes
Unfortunately, a Waveland, Mississippi motorcycle accident can cause serious or permanent injuries and even death. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, only about two out of every ten motorcyclists walk away from an accident uninjured.
Motorcycles do not provide the safety features that help keep occupants of passenger vehicles safe, such as seat belts and airbags. Motorcyclists are often ejected from their bikes and strike other surfaces. They may suffer injuries that include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, serious soft tissue burns, lacerations, broken bones, internal injuries, and more.
Under the Mississippi Civil Code, motorcyclists can develop a case against the driver who caused their accident and hold them accountable for their carelessness if there is evidence to support the allegations against them. The team from the Morris Bart law office in Gulfport may be able to help with building your case. Call (228) 357-9621 today for your free case consultation with a team member.
