Injured In A Car Wreck As A Passenger

Car Wreck as a Passenger

In Mississippi car wreck cases, an injured passenger has rights. In most cases, passengers of a vehicle are not at fault, and the amount of damages they can collect is not limited. A passenger has a valid claim against the driver of the car they were in during a car wreck. For example, a passenger who was injured in a single vehicle crash that was caused by the driver's negligence, such as speeding and losing control of the car, has the right to sue the driver for damages such as medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The driver...

Why You Should Never Settle With the Insurance Adjuster

Insurance Adjuster in Mississippi

Personal Injury cases in Mississippi are settled everyday with no lawyer involvement between an injured party and their assigned insurance adjuster. We see people quickly signing the insurance adjuster’s paperwork every day instead of getting free legal advice first before accepting a quick offer.   Some clients may be thinking that an Injury lawyer will take most of the money, or probably can’t get more for you after fees. Some clients don’t want to have to go to court, or have anxiety and are too nervous, or just don’t have time to be messing with Injury lawyers and the court system. Some...

The legislation, known as the Green Light Bill, expands access to driver’s licenses to an estimated 265,000 undocumented New Yorkers. Supporters say it will create safer roads, increase state revenue and keep families together by preventing traffic violations from turning into deportations. “This is life-changing, and we are proud to stand on the right side of history because every New Yorker should have the opportunity to contribute to their economies and communities without fearing that they will be separated from their family because of a routine traffic stop,” Eddie A. Taveras, state immigration manager for the advocacy group FWD.us, said in...
