Speeding-Related Crashes in Mississippi
Thousands of people are killed every year in high-speed car accidents. When a driver exceeds the legal speed limit, maintaining vehicle control becomes more difficult. Speeding-related collisions killed 9,378 people in Mississippi last year, accounting for nearly a quarter of all traffic deaths. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, speeding has been linked to the deaths of roughly one-third of all motorists in the last two decades.
To be eligible for compensation after an accident, you must show that another party's negligence was a direct cause of your injuries. On your own, this can be difficult.
