Reckless Driving Crashes in Mississippi
It is exceedingly dangerous to do things like texting, talking on the phone, changing the music, interacting with passengers, eating, or drinking while driving. If you are moving at 55 mph and take your eyes off the road for only five seconds, your car will travel the length of a football field. There is definitely more than enough time for anything to go wrong. Distracted driving occurs often in the state of Mississippi.
An insurance adjuster for the party who caused the accident in which you were injured can get in touch with you after the incident occurs. What you say in that discussion may be used against you in the future in an effort to reduce your capacity to get compensation for the losses caused by your injuries. Before you discuss the matter with an opposing party's attorney or insurance adjuster, you need to first confer with your very own legal counsel.
The majority of collisions involving cars and trucks in Mississippi and everywhere in the world are caused by the negligent actions of one or more drivers. The plaintiff has the burden of proving that it is more probable than not that the defendant had a duty to drive safely but did not satisfy that duty, and that the accident happened as a result of the defendant's violation of that duty in order to demonstrate negligence on the part of the defendant.
