Mississippi

Bicycling in Mississippi has become progressively safer in recent years. In part, this is due to the passage of a “3’ passing law” for motorists coupled with new bicycle education programs for police departments. The Magnolia State is on track to continue this positive trend with the future implementation of the Complete Streets policy, which will ensure that transportaion planners and engineers design and operate roadways with bicycles in mind.

Representation in Mississippi bicycle injury cases

Mississippi lawyer Charlie Thomas has fond memories of riding his bicycle in Missisippi from a young age. Whether this involves screaming down the Mississippi River bluff in Natchez during a stage race or mountain biking in Clear Springs in the Homochitto National Forest, Charlie enjoys the diverse landscapes that Mississippi offers to cyclists.

Charlie’s analysis of Mississippi bicycle laws can be found here.

Charlie has covered over 40,000 miles on his bicycle in the Gulf Coast region. He served as the president of the Texas A&M Cycling Team, where he led the team in appearances in the U.S. Collegiate National Championships. Additionally, Charlie raced in the Professional/1/2 category until law school, where studying took priority. As an attorney, Charlie now rides for recreation and focuses his practice on representing cyclists injured by motorists, unsafe road conditions, or defective cycling products.

In addition to his background of cycling throughout Mississippi and the Gulf Coast, Charlie also incorporates his decade of professionally assembling and repairing bicycles into a comprehensive understanding of product failures and dangerous defects. Charlie passionately represents bicyclists against insurance companies, at-fault motorists, unsafe big-box retailers, and negligent manufacturers. He is proud to support Bike Law’s unique mission of client and cause advocacy.

If you have been injured in a Mississippi bike accident, by a defective bicycle product, or because of an unsafe road condition and would like to discuss your case with a Mississippi bicycle accident attorney who is also an avid cyclist, Charlie welcomes your call for a free consultation. He may be reached at 844-531-7540 or charlie@bikelaw.com.
