After a car accident, you call your insurance company so an adjuster can come evaluate your vehicle for your claim. You think they’ll inspect your damages honestly, but instead they report that there is less damage to your car than is visible. When you make an auto insurance claim, you expect the insurance company to operate within your contract. So what happens when they don’t? That’s called bad faith.
Traffic laws exist to maintain order on the road and prevent accidents. Breaking any one of those laws results in consequences. When a driver violates a traffic law, they’re often issued a moving or non-moving citation.
A moving violation happens when a traffic law is violated when a car is moving. Non-moving violations also tend to happen when a car is moving, which can confuse some drivers. The difference is the way the violations are treated by the court and the Department of Licensing (DOL). In general, non-moving violations are not reported to the DOL. The violation, however, determines the type of citation the driver is issued. The more severe the broken law, the higher the fine or penalty.
While drivers all over Mississippi break a variety of traffic laws every day, there are some that are more common than others. Let’s take a look at the top five.
If you’ve been keeping an eye on the news, you’re likely aware that our state will embrace some new laws in 2020. While more laws will be implemented as the year progresses, there are definitive changes being made in January. For example, the Mississippi bar exam rules are changing. And while no official decisions have been made, the state is looking into the implications of county redistricting and the possibility of legalizing medical marijuana. Let’s take a look at what law changes are coming in 2020 to Mississippi.
When you’re on vacation, you might expect to spend more money than you planned, or to go out to eat more often than not. But the last thing you expect to happen is an accident that leaves you seriously injured. If you’re vacationing out of state, that could make your personal injury claim even trickier.
While undergoing treatment for an injury or ailment, you’ve probably placed your trust in your health care provider. They’re the person to answer your questions, address concerns, and they know all about you and your health issue. In some cases, a health care provider may abandon their patient. This can be devastating to anyone, but it can also be life-threatening. If a health care provider unexpectedly stops treating a patient without a reason and does not give the patient adequate time to choose a new provider to take over, the patient’s health problems could progress. In these situations, this may be considered medical malpractice.
Many people are aware of the dangers of distracted driving. Whenever something takes a driver’s attention away from the road, they can get in an accident. Drivers may know of some common distractions, like cell phones and eating, and can take certain precautions to avoid them. While keeping a phone out of arm’s reach as well as keeping any food out of the driver’s lap or passenger seat are great methods to prevent these distractions from getting their attention away from the road, there are other forms of distractions that the driver may have not prepared for. Let’s take a look at some of these surprising distractors a driver can encounter.
Truck accidents can be debilitating for everybody involved. But it can also be hard to determine fault in an accident involving such a large vehicle. Sometimes pictures of the scene alone cannot tell the story of what happened to cause an accident. Black box data can be helpful to the case.
You might be familiar with black box data from airplanes that aid in piecing together what caused a crash. Eighteen-wheelers have them as well for similar reasons. In a commercial truck accident, black box data is used to figure out what happened and prove who was at fault for the collision.
Whenever you’re dealing with a serious matter, you typically go to an expert. If you’re feeling ill or have an injury, you consult a doctor. If you’re planning on moving, you work with a reputable real estate agent. If you’re looking to invest your money, you go to a financial advisor. Working with experts in the field who can look out for your best interests provides peace of mind so you know you’re making fully informed decisions. However, some may not take this approach with the legal process.
Driving is a necessity when you need to get from point A to point B. But you can’t just get in a car and drive. Like many states, you need auto insurance before driving in Mississippi. If you plan on cruising around Biloxi, you need to know the basics of the state’s automobile insurance laws so that you’re protected legally and have peace of mind if an accident occurs.
Medical professionals group pain into two categories. Acute pain, which is what you’re likely to experience immediately following a car accident, is a sharp or sudden pain that decreases over time. Chronic pain, however, lasts for an indefinite amount of time and doesn’t improve on its own.
If you’re experiencing chronic pain after an accident, you’re not alone. Many car accident victims find themselves in similar situations. Part of dealing with chronic pain is understanding why is happens and how it can affect you.

I highly recommend Corban Gunn. I am from Chicago and I while I was vacationing in Biloxi, I had an injury to my foot. I needed an attorney to assist with getting the medical bills paid, and a friend of mine, suggested I contact Corban Gunn.I contacted Corban and he was immediately responsive and opened a case on my behalf regarding my claim. Corban and his paralegal, updated me frequently with the case status. I never needed to worry about my case falling through the cracks. They were in full control, very attentive and it was a smooth process. I attended a deposition with Corban, and he was very polite, not just to me but opposing counsel too. It was a very comfortable setting, Corban spent time with me the day before prepping me with questions that may be asked by opposing counsel. The deposition was stress free and nothing to be nervous about.Corban was able to reach a fair settlement on my behalf.
Mr. Corban Gunn really helped my husband and family! He was very informative, easy to work with, and on top of everything! He kept us informed every step of the way. We would highly recommend him to anyone.
Corban is an outstanding lawyer with extensive experience and knowledge of personal injury. Our case was complicated, but he was committed to our case and worked through the fine details. He helped us move forward from the accident and gave us a positive outcome.
I was home bound after a car accident and Mr. Gunn made a house call to meet with me. When another attorney turned me down, Mr. Gunn gave me hope when he agreed to represent me. It was a long process but Mr. Gunn and Brandi kept me apprised of my case. Down to earth, fair, fought for me when I was being unfairly blamed. Highly recommend their services.
Demonstrating true integrity and compassion for the circumstances, Mr. Gunn did an excellent job handling a complex and lengthy case for our family. He and his office staff are extremely professional, knowledgeable, diligent, and dedicated to obtaining optimum results, which he most certainly did for us. Definitely five plus stars! Thank you!
Excellent negotiator...had to turn to my own uninsured motor vehicle coverage when I was injured by an uninsured, impaired driver...my own insurance company ignored me...Corban did a good job...I did not get a lot because of the $25K limit on my coverage, and I had to repay Medicare...but what I got was better than nothing.
Mr Gunn is the best. My wife was hit by a Truck in August 2017 and we hired Mr Gunn to represent us. We were more then satisfied with the settlement Mr Gunn got us and the deep concern he had for my wife and me. I would recommend Mr Gunn to anyone that needs a great lawyer to represent them.
Mr. W. C. Gunn was the most helpful attorney and provided the best information to me in order to understand the knowledge about each step i should take. Unfortunately, does not represent the type of legal services i am needing, however, this very intelligent attorney went above and beyond to inform me of each step to take including a next day trial without any legal representing me yet and gave me step by step to inform judge. Then Mr Gunn, took more time out of his own day to locate and send me his personal reference in the correct attorney that would do me the best! To top it off, wow how genuine, he even followed up with me. Now that a true genuine and absolute amazing lawyer and friend who my case has nothing to benifit him. You honestly dont see that very much!!! Thank you, Mr Gunn!!
I asked Mr. Gunn to represent me in an aviation case. Though the case meandered along for quite a while due to the other party's actions - or lack of actions, Mr. Gunn represented my interests well, updated me of progress along the way, and was professional during all aspects of the case. I would hire Mr. Gunn again if the need were to arise.
