Tupelo Bicycle Accident Lawyers

Although a completely different form of transportation, under Mississippi law, bicyclists still have many of the same rights to the road as other operators of motor vehicles. If you have been hurt in Tupelo while riding a bicycle due to the negligence of another, the experienced Tupelo bicycle accident attorneys at Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz may be able to help you pursue damages for the injuries you sustained.

Know the Law and Protect Your Rights After a Bike Accident

Mississippi law allows for bicyclists to recover similar forms of compensation as if they were involved in an automobile accident. A victim may pursue property damage claims, which include compensation for either repairs or the total loss value of the bicycle. Additionally, any personal property items damaged in the accident may be compensable as well, such as sunglasses, helmets, cell phones, water bottles, and clothing. If the bicyclist suffers physical injuries in the accident, he or she may also be compensated for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, permanent disfigurement, loss of consortium, and mental anguish caused by the impact. Bike accident injuries are often severe, such as scarring, road rash, or disfigurement.

It is important to note that in Mississippi, a bicyclist typically has three years from the date of the accident to either settle his or her claim or file a lawsuit in court. That being said, it is of utmost importance to contact a bicycle accident attorney in Tupelo soon after the accident to avoid any unnecessary delay with your claim. Furthermore, an injured bicyclist needs to be aware that even if he or she does not think there is a valid claim, our attorneys can utilize our knowledge of the law and explain your legal options. Mississippi follows a pure comparative fault rule. This means that even if the victim bears a portion of responsibility for the wreck, he or she may still possess an avenue for recovery. However, the injured bicyclist will only be able to recover based on the degree of fault of the other party.

For example: a bicyclist traveling east comes to a stop sign at a two way stop. He sees a car in the distance traveling north towards the intersection. The bicyclist, thinking he has enough time to clear the intersection, proceeds to go through the stop sign. The motorist, distracted by his cell phone and speeding down the road, collides with the bicyclist. The court rules that the bicyclist is 20 percent at fault and the motorist is 80 percent at fault. In this situation, the victim could recover 80 percent of the total damages.
