What Compensation Can I Recover From a Motorcycle Accident In Mississippi?

Motorcycle accidents often lead to severe and life-changing injuries, making it important for victims to receive full and fair compensation. At Langston & Lott, we are committed to ensuring that every client understands the types of compensation available to them and receives the full amount they are entitled to.

Here’s a closer look at the different categories of compensation we pursue for motorcycle accident victims:

Medical Expenses

Medical treatment following a motorcycle accident can be extensive and costly. Compensation for medical expenses includes not only your current medical bills but also anticipated future medical costs. This can cover emergency room visits, hospital stays, surgeries, medication, rehabilitation, physical therapy, and any long-term care needs.

Our team works with medical professionals to accurately assess the full extent of your medical expenses, ensuring that your compensation reflects the care you require now and in the future.

Lost Wages and Earning Capacity

Many motorcycle accident victims are unable to work while they recover, resulting in lost wages.

Furthermore, if your injuries prevent you from returning to your previous job or working at all, you may also be entitled to compensation for lost earning capacity. This accounts for the income you would have earned had the accident not occurred, including consideration for raises, promotions, and other career advancements.

Langston & Lott calculates these losses to ensure your financial stability is maintained.

Pain and Suffering

Beyond the financial impact, motorcycle accidents can inflict significant physical pain and emotional distress. Compensation for pain and suffering is meant to address these non-economic damages. This includes compensation for physical discomfort, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, and the impact of permanent disabilities or disfigurement.

Though these damages are more subjective, our experienced attorneys are skilled at quantifying pain and suffering to ensure you are adequately compensated for these profound impacts on your life.

Property Damage

If your motorcycle or any personal property was damaged or destroyed in the accident, you are entitled to compensation for repair or replacement. We ensure that the value of your property damage is fully assessed and included in your claim, helping you to restore your possessions to their pre-accident condition.

Punitive Damages

In cases where the defendant’s behavior was particularly reckless or egregious, you may recover punitive damages. These are not related to your direct losses but punish the wrongdoer and deter similar conduct. Langston & Lott will explore the possibility of seeking punitive damages if applicable to your case.

Future Damages

Motorcycle accidents can result in injuries that require ongoing medical care and may impact your ability to earn a living. Compensation for future damages takes into account the estimated costs of long-term medical treatment, rehabilitation, and loss of future earnings.

Our firm uses expert witnesses to project these costs, ensuring that your compensation package includes provisions for your future needs.

At Langston & Lott, we understand the complexities involved in motorcycle accident claims and the profound effects an accident can have on every aspect of your life.

Our goal is to secure a compensation package that fully addresses both your immediate and long-term needs, allowing you and your family to move forward with the confidence and support you deserve.

If you or a loved one was in a motorcycle accident, contact us to learn how we can help you during this challenging time and fight for the compensation you are rightfully owed.

Where Do Accidents Occur in Mississippi?

The Mississippi Department of Transportation has identified several highways as particularly crash-prone, making them areas where drivers should exercise increased caution.

Here’s an overview of the seven most dangerous roads in Mississippi, highlighting where and why accidents frequently occur:

  • U.S. 98/Hardy Street, Hattiesburg: Leading with 7,649 crashes between 2010 and 2014, US-98 intersects with Hardy Street and is heavily influenced by traffic from nearby I-59 and US-49. The blend of urban congestion and exit traffic contributes to its high accident rate.
  • MS-25/Lakeland Drive, Jackson: With 7,229 crashes in the same period, MS-25 traverses through both urban and rural settings over 150 miles. The combination of high-speed rural sections and densely trafficked urban areas creates a particularly perilous environment for drivers.
  • MS-302/Goodman Road, Memphis: Located near Memphis and intersecting with six major highways, MS-302 saw 6,909 crashes, with its rural stretches posing significant challenges for law enforcement visibility and emergency response.
  • U.S. 90/Bienville Boulevard, Biloxi: This scenic coastal route experienced 4,209 crashes, attributed to its length and increased traffic through coastal towns, heightening the potential for accidents.
  • U.S. 45, Meridian: Spanning from the state’s northern border to Mobile, Alabama, US-45’s extensive length through both rural and urban areas resulted in 2,287 crashes, making it one of Mississippi’s most dangerous roads.
  • U.S. 49, Hattiesburg: A critical north-south route, US-49 witnessed 2,192 crashes. Its passage through 10 rural counties and 17 cities, plus an intersection with US-98, significantly contributes to its danger level.
  • U.S. 51, Jackson: Stretching from Mississippi to Illinois, US-51 cuts through a diverse mix of locales, leading to 1,552 crashes. The variety in driving environments complicates traffic enforcement and increases the likelihood of accidents.


The danger on Mississippi roads is further underscored by statewide statistics highlighting safety issues:

  • Impaired driving remains a significant concern, with drunk driving fatalities making up 18% of total traffic deaths in the state.
  • Distracted driving, especially involving text messaging or using electronic devices, has become a leading cause of accidents, underscoring the need for greater awareness and preventative measures.

Our Focus on Mississippi Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents can occur in a variety of situations, each presenting unique challenges for the victim.

At Langston & Lott, we handle cases involving:

  • Left-turn collisions: When a vehicle turns left in front of a motorcycle, often due to failing to see the motorcyclist or misjudging their speed.
  • Lane-splitting accidents: Occurring when a motorcycle navigates between lanes of slow-moving or stopped traffic and a collision happens.
  • Rear-end collisions: Even at low speeds, these can result in serious injuries for motorcyclists.
  • Hit-and-run incidents: Leaving victims without immediate recourse and requiring strategic legal action.


Common injuries in these accidents include road rash, fractures, head and brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries. Our team is equipped to handle each of these types of injuries, fighting for the rights and recovery of our clients.

Fighting the Insurance Company

At Langston & Lott, we understand the strategies insurance companies use to minimize their payouts and how to effectively counteract them. Here’s a deeper look into the tactics used by insurers and how our firm protects the rights and interests of our clients:

Delay Tactics

Insurance companies are notorious for using delay tactics to wear down claimants. This might include long periods of silence, repeated requests for unnecessary documentation, or slow responses to claims submissions. The goal is to push the claimant into a state of desperation where they might accept a lower settlement just to get some relief.

Our firm recognizes these tactics for what they are and maintains persistent pressure on insurance companies to process claims in a timely and fair manner.

Disputing Medical Treatments and Costs

Another common tactic is disputing the necessity or cost of medical treatments. Insurers may argue that certain treatments were not necessary or that the costs are higher than usual, attempting to reduce the amount they have to pay.

Langston & Lott collaborates with medical professionals to provide evidence that supports the necessity and costs of your treatments, ensuring your medical expenses are fully covered.

Blaming the Victim

Insurance companies may try to shift some or all of the blame onto the motorcycle accident victim to reduce their liability. They might suggest that the victim was speeding, not wearing a helmet, or otherwise acting negligently at the time of the accident.

Our attorneys are skilled at collecting and presenting evidence that accurately represents the circumstances of the accident to protect our clients from unfair blame.

Offering Quick, Lowball Settlements

Shortly after an accident, insurers often offer a quick settlement that is far less than the claim is worth. Victims facing mounting medical bills and financial stress may be tempted to accept.

Langston & Lott advises clients on the true value of their claims, considering current and future medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more to ensure any settlement offer is fair and comprehensive.

Misrepresenting Policy Terms

Insurance companies may attempt to misinterpret or misrepresent the terms of their policies to limit payouts. They count on the complexity of insurance language and the likelihood that victims are not fully aware of their rights under the policy.

Our legal team meticulously reviews policy terms and relevant laws to challenge any misrepresentations and advocate for the full benefits to which our clients are entitled.

Surveillance and Social Media Monitoring

Insurers may also conduct surveillance or monitor a claimant’s social media accounts in an attempt to find evidence that contradicts the claim, such as photos or posts suggesting the victim is not as injured as claimed.

Langston & Lott counsels clients on how to manage their social media presence and protect themselves from such tactics.

At Langston & Lott, we are dedicated to fighting for the rights of motorcycle accident victims against insurance companies’ attempts to undermine their claims. 

Our experienced attorneys use their knowledge and skills to overcome the challenges posed by insurance companies, ensuring our clients receive the compensation they need to recover and move forward with their lives.

If you have difficulty with an insurance claim after a motorcycle accident, trust Langston & Lott’s Mississippi motorcycle accident attorneys to advocate on your behalf.
