Reckless Driving Accidents in Mississippi
No matter how safe of a driver you may be, there is little stopping a reckless driver from pulling you into a collision. Reckless driving is involved in nearly three out of every ten reported auto accidents and one-third of annual traffic fatalities. Statistics show that roughly 90% of reported collisions involve human error.
After being hurt in a Mississippi car accident, you have the right to pursue a negligence claim for your injuries and other damages. When a driver gets behind the wheel, he or she has to exercise reasonable care to obey the traffic laws and prevent causing serious injury. Failure to do so may constitute negligence, leaving the victim entitled to recover damages through an injury claim. The personal injury claim is a long and confusing process for those with little experience in the law.
