Reckless Driving Collisions in Mississippi
Mississippi drivers are notorious for engaging in reckless actions behind the wheel, and negligent driving is a substantial contributor to catastrophic crashes across the state. An estimated 90% of reported vehicle collisions are attributable to some degree of human error. Driver intoxication is a serious issue in Mississippi and is a factor in nearly 30% of annual traffic fatalities in the state.
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.
