Intersection Accidents in Mississippi
When you enter an intersection, you are more likely to be involved in a car accident. Even with traffic signals and stop signs, intersection accidents are incredibly common, with more than 2.5 million occurring each year according to the Federal Highway Administration. Roadway crossings have become increasingly more dangerous over the past 25 years, and these crashes are responsible for an estimated 25% of roadway fatalities.
In order to recover compensation after a crash, you have to determine that the negligence of another party directly contributed to your injuries. This can be difficult on your own, and many crash victims find themselves overwhelmed by the personal injury process. An experienced Mississippi personal injury lawyer can help you construct a strong case, make sure your legal rights are secured, and ensure that the liable party is held accountable for their role in the accident.
