How medical evidence is used in car accident lawsuits

When Mississippi residents file lawsuits against negligent drivers after being involved in motor vehicle accidents, they must convince juries of two key elements if they hope to prevail. They must establish that they suffered injury, loss or damage in an accident caused wholly or partly by the negligent behavior of the defendant. Plaintiffs must also be able to justify the amount of the damages they are seeking, and this is generally done by providing juries with documents such as medical bills, bank statements and paystubs.

Filing a lawsuit after a tailgating accident

Most motor vehicle accidents in Mississippi and around the country involve some sort of human error, and rear-end collisions are often caused by motorists who failed to maintain safe distances. Tailgating drivers who cause crashes are often ticketed for motor vehicle infractions, and these citations can be used by personal injury attorneys who are representing injured victims in civil suits against the at-fault motorists.

The issue of distracted driving in Mississippi

Several recent studies have indicated that distracted driving is a growing issue. Distracted driving is considered to be anything that takes a motorist's attention off of the road. This can include everything from eating to changing the radio station. However, smartphones are a significant source of distraction for many people.
