Speeding-Related Crashes in Mississippi
Speed matters when dealing with auto accidents. Not only does speeding increase the risk of a crash, but it can also magnify the severity of resulting injuries. Thousands of Americans lose their lives each year in high-speed crashes, and an estimated 15% of annual traffic fatalities in Mississippi involve speeding motorists. Nationwide, nearly 25 people were killed daily in speeding-related impacts in 2018.
In order to recover compensation after a crash, you have to determine that the negligence of another party directly contributed to your injuries. This can be difficult on your own, and many crash victims find themselves overwhelmed by the personal injury process. An experienced Mississippi personal injury lawyer can help you construct a strong case, make sure your legal rights are secured, and ensure that the liable party is held accountable for their role in the accident.
