James Dean, Steve McQueen, Marlon Brando – let’s face it. Motorcycles have always been cool.

How Mississippi’s motorcycle laws affect your injuries
Riders in Mississippi are required to wear a helmet, to purchase at least the minimum of liability insurance and to undergo periodic safety inspections. They are not, however, required to do much else. Because of this, riders in Mississippi could face more serious injuries, such as:
- Vision loss
- Limb amputations
- Internal bleeding
- Broken bones
- Lacerations and bruising
- Organ damage
- Traumatic brain injuries
Without protective eyewear, a rider’s vision is at risk. Because the law mandates that riders do not need signals – and most car drivers promptly forgot which hand signals to use once they start driving a car instead – oncoming traffic as well as the cars and trucks behind you may not realize you are changing lanes or making a turn. Not requiring mirrors means a rider must turn his or her head all the way around to see what is happening behind him/her, which means extra time spent not looking ahead. Mississippi does not even require headlights on motorcycles for night time driving.
Add all of these dangers to a road with tired truck drivers and distracted car drivers, and you find yourself in a world that can be very dangerous to bikers. If you do not have additional personal injury protection insurance, you face an uphill battle trying to get the money you need to heal. If you lose a loved one in a motorcycle accident, a wrongful death lawsuit may be the only way to protect your family from further harm.

The lawyers often work together, utilizing a team approach to practicing law that helps them create strategies designed with your best interest in mind.
