Speeding-Related Crashes in Mississippi
The rate of speed involved in a collision can make a difference. When drivers exceed the speed limit, there is an increased risk of a crash, and the severity of resulting injuries is almost certain to be magnified. Over the past twenty years, speeding has been a factor in roughly one-third of reported traffic fatalities in the United States. Nearly 15% of annual roadway deaths in Mississippi involve speeding motorists.
In order to recover compensation after a crash, you have to determine that the negligence of another party directly contributed to your injuries.
