Mississippi Underinsured and Uninsured Motorist Coverage Laws

Mississippi has more uninsured drivers than any other state in the U.S. To keep yourself and your loved ones safe on our roads, be sure you are familiar with Mississippi underinsured and uninsured motorist coverage laws.

Uninsured motorist (UM) and underinsured motorist (UIM) auto insurance exists to help you in the event you get in an accident with a driver who doesn’t have adequate vehicle insurance. If the other driver’s insurance policy isn’t sufficient to cover your losses, your UM/UIM coverage can kick in to make up the difference.

What You Need To Know About Speeding Cameras in Mississippi

You’ve likely heard the saying “speed kills” before. It, therefore, shouldn’t come as a surprise that National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data cites speed as the primary contributing factor to at least 26% of all car accidents.

While many jurisdictions use these cameras to enforce established traffic laws, many drivers in Biloxi, Gulfport, and other parts of Mississippi continue to violate the law, endangering the lives of fellow motorists. This happens because there’s no concern about a camera catching them recklessly driving if a police officer isn’t nearby.

What Is Informed Consent in Medical Care?

No matter the type of medical care, a patient always has the right to receive information and ask questions before undergoing treatment. Communication with a medical professional allows the patient to make decisions about their own health care. It educates the patient about risks, benefits, and alternative treatment options. It gives the patient the chance to voice concerns and gain a fuller understanding of medical terms and concepts they may not be familiar with. Informed consent is a fundamental component of any successful patient-physician relationship.

A health care provider has a legal and ethical obligation to facilitate this exchange of information prior to testing or treatment. If you visited a health care provider and there was no process of informed consent prior to your procedure, you may have faced an instance of medical malpractice.
