Reckless Driving Crashes in Mississippi

An estimated 13,000 fatal accidents each year are attributable to reckless drivers, making up nearly one-third of traffic fatalities nationwide. Drivers in Mississippi are notorious for recklessness behind the wheel, and nearly 22% of motorists in the state fail to wear a seatbelt while traveling in a car.
If you have been injured in a Mississippi car accident, you have the right to pursue a negligence claim for your injuries. Anyone who gets behind the wheel has to exercise reasonable care to obey the traffic laws of the State of Mississippi.
