High-Speed Crashes in Mississippi
When drivers choose to exceed the speed limit, they may not understand how dangerous their actions actually are. Speeding can greatly increase the likelihood of a catastrophic car accident, and speeding has been a factor in nearly one-third of reported roadway fatalities over the past twenty years. Thousands of Americans are killed annually by speeding drivers, and speeding is involved in an estimated 15% of traffic fatalities in Mississippi each year.
Dealing with the aftermath of a serious crash is a long and frustrating process, and many Mississippi car crash victims are unprepared to protect their rights. The financial impact of medical care, repair bills, and lost wages can be extremely disruptive to our lives and leave accident victims in a difficult financial and emotional situation.
