Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Due to the size of a motorcycle compared to a car or a truck, motorcyclists are particularly at risk for accidents and serious injuries.

Motorcycle accidents are often caused by:

  • Drivers making left turns into the path of a motorcyclist
  • Vehicles switching lanes into a motorcyclist’s path
  • Inattentive or negligent drivers
  • Head-on collisions
  • Intoxicated drivers
  • Faulty motorcycle parts or mechanical errors

Whether another driver or the motorcycle manufacturer is at fault for your accident, you need financial support during this difficult time. The Oxford motorcycle accident attorneys at Brad Morris Law Firm, PLLC can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.

Mississippi Motorcycle Laws

As a motorcyclist, it's important that you understand the laws that affect you while riding in Mississippi. At times, these laws can even play a part in pursuing a personal injury lawsuit.

What is the Mississippi Helmet Law?

In 1974 Mississippi enacted the universal helmet law which requires all motorcyclists, regardless of age or type of motorcycle, to wear a helmet while riding. All helmets must be in compliance with the specifications set forth in Mississippi Statute Title 63, Ch. 7 §63-7-64.

Is Lane Splitting Legal in Mississippi?

"Lane splitting" refers to when motorcyclists drive between lanes (i.e. on the white line) in order to get around or between other cars on the road. While some states explicitly forbid lane splitting, Mississippi legislature (as of September 2019) neither protects, nor forbids, lane splitting.

Going Farther than Your Insurance Company

You cannot always count on your insurance company to keep your best interests at heart. After an accident, your insurance company may try to help you seek damages but may also urge you to settle for less than what you are legally owed.

When you are seeking damages from another driver or a manufacturer, you are going up against their insurance company, too. Insurance companies are powerful, for-profit businesses that will do everything in their power to avoid paying you the compensation you are entitled to. With a skilled attorney on your side, you are better equipped to fight back and make sure you walk away without leaving money on the table.
