Reckless Driving Crashes in Mississippi
Mississippi is well-known for its dangerous and reckless driving. Texting while driving is admitted by more than a quarter of senior drivers. More than a third of individuals admit to reading, writing, or sending messages while driving, according to the Mississippi Department of Health. Only minutes before a fatal vehicle accident, over 21% of 15- to 19-year-old drivers were distracted by a smartphone.
You may be eligible for compensation if you or a loved one was hurt in a vehicle accident caused by a reckless driver. When you consider that Mississippi's legal system is based on comparative blame, pursuing a claim for damages on your own after a car accident might be challenging. Insurance firms try to dismiss claims or decrease reimbursement wherever feasible. Even if you feel the other party is at fault, the insurance company will almost probably try to blame you in order to save money.
If you were injured in a Mississippi car accident caused by a careless driver, you may be entitled to compensation. The individual who caused the accident should be held accountable for their actions. We are dedicated to securing justice for our clients at Germany Law Firm PLLC.
