Mississippi Car Wrecks
As a result of the consistently high incidence of automobile deaths in the state, Mississippi is regarded as one of the most dangerous to be a driver in the United States. Government figures indicate that around 22% of drivers in the state do not use a seatbelt when driving. Speeding and driver inattention are two of the most significant factors in fatal and serious accidents.
Victims of a Mississippi automobile accident caused by the carelessness or recklessness of another person may be entitled to compensation for their damages, and the party at fault for the accident should be held liable for his or her actions. The fact that Mississippi motorists are supposed to exercise reasonable caution and adhere to the state’s traffic laws does not deter many of them from driving recklessly and causing harm or death to themselves and others on a regular basis. Negligence can be shown when a driver fails to act reasonably behind the wheel.
