Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Those who ride motorcycles know all too well the dangers they face out on the road. Compared to car and truck drivers, motorcyclists are left almost completely exposed. With only a helmet, pads, and sometimes thick leather gear to protect them, motorcyclists often end up severely injured in wrecks even when other cars or trucks are not involved. When motorcyclists are hit by other vehicles, the results can be downright disastrous. If you find yourself involved in a motorcycle crash in Tupelo or the surrounding area, you will need an attorney by your side who can help protect your legal rights.
At Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz, our Tupelo personal injury attorneys are ready to fight for you. With over 30 attorneys and over 100 staff members in our firm, we have the knowledge, skill, and resources to handle your case, no matter how serious your injuries may be.

Proving Your Case, One Element at a Time
In motorcycle accident cases, as in other types of car accident cases, there are specific elements that must be satisfied to prove negligence under Mississippi law. To do this, you must be able to prove that:
- The other driver had a duty towards you.
- The other driver breached that duty.
- The other driver’s breach was both the actual and proximate cause of your injury.
- You sustained damages.
For most people, their wreck will be the first time they ever come across the above legal standard. However, being able to prove each element is essential to your ability to recover for your losses. In order to ensure that you obtain fair compensation, you will need a Tupelo injury lawyer experienced in motorcycle accidents to argue for your side. Our attorneys are prepared to do exactly that for your case. We will use our knowledge of the legal standard to match the facts of your case to each element, and we can use our skill and experience to counter the defendant’s arguments against your case.
Going the Extra Mile to Recover for Your Losses
Once each element of negligence has been established, one of the next steps in your case is the search for a source of recovery. Most often, the car insurance carrier for the driver that hit you will be the primary source of recovery for your losses. However, unfortunately, we often see cases where the driver of the defendant’s vehicle does not have any auto insurance at all, even though Mississippi law requires all drivers to possess valid liability coverage. If that happens in your case, the services of our motorcycle accident attorneys will become even more invaluable.
Our firm has experience in dealing with this situation and understands the importance of investigating all avenues of potential recovery. If the defendant possesses minimum insurance limits, it may be appropriate for the victim to assert a claim under the uninsured/underinsured motorist portion of his or her policy. By handling bike crash cases for over 30 years, our office understands the different types of insurance coverage that may be able to cover your losses.
