Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents, though not as common as other vehicle crashes, can be devastating. Even with the best protective gear, a forceful impact with another vehicle can lead to life-altering injury.

If you are injured in a motorcycle accident through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to compensation in the form of damages to help you pay for medical bills, cover lost wages, and pain and suffering.

At Ben Bowden, Attorney at Law, we can help you get the compensation you need to care for yourself and your family. We understand that filing a lawsuit is likely not your top priority. Let us handle the insurance companies and legal obstacles that stand in your way of recovery while you focus on getting better.

Damages to Recover after a Motorcycle Accident

If you suffered losses after a motorcycle accident in Mississippi, you deserve full compensation for all your losses and damages. Your personal injury lawsuit may include compensation for both financial and non-financial damages. You can recover:

Economic or financial damages:

  • Lost wages
  • Cost for repairs of your motorcycle and other personal properties
  • Current and future medical costs
  • Loss of property
  • Loss of earning capacity

Non-economic Damages:

Non-financial damages are hard to calculate. In Mississippi, there is no standard damage value for non-economic damages like emotional trauma or pain and suffering, making it difficult to measure their exact value. It helps to hire a skilled Mississippi motorcycle accident attorney who can precisely evaluate and quantify your non-financial damages. Non-economic damages include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of compassion
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment for life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Permanent scarring or disfigurement

Do You Need the Help of a Motorcycle Accident Attorney?

It is always a good idea to hire a lawyer if you have been involved in a motorcycle accident. Without legal representation, you risk losing the money you deserve to insurance companies, their adjusters and their attorneys. A motorcycle accident attorney can help you establish liability, build your case, and maximize compensation.

Insurance companies may make a quick settlement offer. While it may be tempting to accept the offer, remember that their job is to limit the value of your case. They may try to diminish the value of your case, or attempt to prove that you were at fault.

Don’t sign anything until you have talked with an attorney. A motorcycle accident attorney can fight legally to ensure insurance companies do not take advantage of your situation and that you get a fair settlement.

Our motorcycle accident lawyers at Ben Bowden, Attorney at Law, are committed to giving you personalized legal representation to help you achieve the best possible outcome. Be sure to contact us immediately if you are involved in a motorcycle crash.

Mr. Bowden has been a very good choice for us. He's taken care of things when we didn't have any idea where to turn. We highly recommend him.

Former Client | Personal Injury

Ben was awesome to work with. His assistant was able to address most of my questions during my case. Ben always found time to explain in layman’s terms how the court process worked. We won the case.

Former client

Mr. Bowden handled my workers' compensation case through trial and won big. He then filed a bad-faith case on the way my workers' compensation claim was wrongfully handled by the insurance company. I didn't even know I had that claim before he told me. I highly recommend Mr. Bowden. He took it to the other side at trial.

Former client | Workers Compensation

Ben has handled things for me for years. He has always done a great job. He comes to Lucedale to meet and that's been important to me.
