Reckless Driving Crashes in Mississippi 

Laurel, MS - Victims Injured After Car Accident at I-59 & US-11The state of Mississippi is known for its risky and irresponsible driving. According to the Mississippi Department of Health, more than 75% of mature drivers confess to chatting on their phones while driving, and over a third admit to reading, writing, or sending text messages while driving. Just minutes before a fatal car collision, over 21% of drivers aged 15 to 19 minutes were distracted by their iPhones.

If you or a loved one was injured in a car wreck caused by a careless driver, you may be entitled to compensation. Filing a claim for compensation after a vehicle accident in Mississippi might be difficult since the state’s legal system is focused solely on comparative blame. Wherever possible, insurance companies endeavor to deny claims or reduce compensation. Even if you feel the other person is totally to blame, the insurance company will almost certainly attempt to place blame on you to save money.

If you or a close member has been seriously injured in a vehicle accident or as a consequence of someone else’s negligence, it is critical to protect your rights.
