Bicycle Accidents

There is a misconception by some member of the public in Mississippi that bicyclists do not belong on the road with cars and trucks. But under Mississippi law bicyclists have an equal right to the roads and drivers have a duty to avoid cyclists who are obeying the rules of the road. Bicycle-motor vehicle collisions are often devastating for the cyclist and result from negligence on the part of the vehicle driver.

Philip Thomas has experience representing cyclists who were injured as a result of driver’s negligence. Details of representative case results can be reviewed on the case results section of this website. When necessary we hire experts with specific expertise in bicycle accidents as well as the best medical experts available.
