Reckless Driving Collisions in Mississippi
Drivers who engage in reckless actions behind the wheel are a threat to roadway safety. Mississippi drivers have the unfortunate reputation of acting negligently on the state’s roadways. Statistics reveal that an estimated 22% of motorists in the state fail to wear a seatbelt while riding in a motor vehicle, greatly increasing the risk of suffering serious injuries in the event of a collision.
If you have been injured in a Mississippi car accident, you have the right to pursue a negligence claim for your injuries. Anyone who gets behind the wheel has to exercise reasonable care to obey the traffic laws of the State of Mississippi. Failure to do so may constitute negligence and give rise to a claim for lost damages for the injured party. The personal injury claim is a long and confusing process for those with little experience in the law, but you do not have to do it alone.
