Injury Accidents in Mississippi
Negligent motorists who deliberately choose to ignore the rules of the road are a threat to themselves and to those around them. In the past two decades, speeding alone has been responsible for about 34% of all fatal car accidents.
If you are attempting to recoup your financial losses following a car accident, you will have to prove that the carelessness of another person was the direct cause of your injuries. This can be hard to accomplish alone, and a lot of road accident victims find themselves overcome by the technicalities involved in the personal injury legal process.
Drivers who behave recklessly or carelessly are more prone to causing serious car accidents. Each year, around 13,000 fatal car wrecks are caused by these careless drivers. This accounts for around one-third of all fatal accidents. Sadly, human error plays a role in nearly 90% of all Mississippi car accidents.
