Whether you’re headed to your vacation destination in Mississippi or you’re just passing through the state, it’s important to know the rules of the road. Traffic laws and vehicle requirements are established at the state level. This means that as you cross state lines, the laws can change. If you’re planning on driving in or through Mississippi, here are five facts out-of-state drivers should know.
When you’re about to have a baby, you want everything to go perfectly according to plan. You hope to leave the hospital with a happy, healthy baby, but that isn’t always the case. Some newborns are born with birth injuries that can affect development.
Seizures can be a sign that your baby suffered from a birth injury, especially to the brain. Some specific injuries cause seizures, but they can also be a result of a condition the baby had before birth. If you suspect your baby has suffered a brain injury, you’ll want to know what to look for.
Driving requires constant attention. When we get older, sometimes we can’t focus like we used to. While driving allows senior citizens independence, it’s not always safe. There are signs that your loved one’s health could be declining that directly affect their driving abilities. Even if they don’t realize they’re dangerous behind the wheel, they could get into a car accident and injure themselves and others.
According to Consumer Reports, about 14 million Americans a year are in car accidents caused by senior citizens. And the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that nearly 300,000 people over 65 years of age were injured or killed in a car crash in 2016. Those high numbers prove the need for caution when it comes to senior citizens driving.
Playgrounds and parks are great places for children to get outside, play, and exercise. While skinned knees and bruised elbows are commonplace, more serious injuries are possible—especially when negligence is involved. Poorly maintained equipment, broken parts, shattered glass, inadequate supervision, or aggressive playmates can cause injuries that require emergency care.
There are a number of steps you and your child can take to avoid injuries. For example, they should only play on equipment that’s positioned over wood chips, rubber surfacing, or sand. Falling on concrete, blacktop, or grass is more likely to result in severe injuries. As a parent or guardian, it’s important to look for small spaces where your child’s head could get stuck, ensure they don’t attach jump ropes or other ropes to playground equipment, and look for places they might trip and fall.
Even when you take precautions, injuries are still possible. Understanding the most common park and playground injuries and how they happen can help you avoid potentially dangerous situations.

There’s plenty of places to buy a car in Biloxi. Test driving a car can be nerve wracking experience because you’re driving a vehicle that is new to you. You want to look at all the unfamiliar features that you can even though doing so may be a distraction. Cars can also have different sensitivities for the gas, brakes, steering, and other features, which may take the driver by surprise.
If you’ve been involved in a car accident while test driving a vehicle at a car dealership, it will help you to know how liability is handled in these situations. The first thing to know is that no matter what, you want to file a police report after any collision, but especially during a test drive. This proves that the incident happened, and the officer might write down who they find responsible in their report. This can help you if anyone takes you to court for the accident in a vehicle you were test driving.
Slip and fall accidents are sudden and can have many consequences that affect your life. Your injuries have the potential to cause chronic pain and could make you miss work while you take time to heal. These preventable accidents may not have happened if the people in charge of the premises hadn’t acted negligently. Your safety shouldn’t have been jeopardized. But you can seek justice. A slip and fall lawyer from Corban Gunn, Attorney at Law will do everything to get you the compensation you deserve.
Before getting in touch with your lawyer, you may be thinking that your claim will be a cut and dried deal. Someone was negligent, you were hurt as a result, and deserve compensation. However, not everyone will see it that way. You’ll need to prove that negligence caused your injuries and you weren’t responsible in any way.
When a commercial truck is in an accident, an investigation is often conducted to determine the cause. While the majority of crashes are the direct result of human error, there are some that are caused by defective automotive parts. When evidence suggests a truck could pose serious harm to others, it’s crucial for it to be recalled so accidents can be prevented.
When a commercial truck is defective and equipment fails, the truck driver could have a difficult time maintaining control of their vehicle and an accident could result. Just like with car companies, truck manufacturers are required to inform the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of defects, so a recall can be issued.
When a woman goes into the delivery process, there are many factors to keep track of. The medical team needs to monitor the mother and the baby’s vitals. They need to make sure their oxygen levels are normal and that the baby faces no complications when being delivered through the birth canal. However, issues during the pregnancy can also put the child at risk of being born with a birth injury.
If your child was born with a birth injury, they may have severe health complications that they’ll live with for the rest of their lives. It can be frustrating to know that it could have been prevented. If a medical care provider acted negligently, they should be held accountable for their actions.
Depending on where you live, you might travel on highways on a daily basis. If this is the case, you’ve likely seen a number of negligent drivers on the road. When drivers are unaware of how to drive on a highway, they can cause serious accidents. Part of understanding how to operate on freeways involves recognizing how the different lanes work and which lanes are the most dangerous to drive in.
Lane Selection on High-Speed Roadways
Part of what makes driving on highways so dangerous is that not all drivers are aware of how the different lanes are supposed to function. On a typical freeway, there are five types of lanes: the acceleration lane, merging area, through lane, passing lane, and deceleration lane.

Corban represented my wife and I in a personal injury case. He briefed us at the very beginning as to what to expect and lived up to all of our expectationsHe proved to be expeditious and thorough throughout the whole process. We highly recommend him to anyone needing legal representation.
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.
