Mississippi Speeding-Related Crashes
There is a reason why speed limits are imposed on the state's roadways. Unexpected crises can occur at any time while behind the wheel, and drivers must have ample time and space to respond appropriately. However, if you drive too quickly, you may not have the same ability to dodge a hazard on the road. You may not be able to see it until it's too late. During a recent five-year period, the Mississippi Office of Highway Safety reported an average of 103 speeding-related deaths taking place each year in the state.
When you or someone you care about is hurt in a car accident caused by someone else, you may be entitled to compensation. It might be difficult to pursue a claim for damages following an automobile accident, particularly because Mississippi is a pure comparative negligence state. insurance firms try to dismiss claims or decrease payouts whenever they can. Even if you believe the other person is entirely to blame, the insurance company will almost certainly argue for a share of culpability against you in order to save money.
