High-Speed Crashes in Mississippi
Speeding is a predominant factor in deadly car accidents across the country, including right here in Mississippi. An estimated 15% of the state’s traffic fatalities involve speeding drivers. Thousands of people are killed by speeding drivers each year across the country, with a total of 9,378 people dying in 2018 alone. Over the past twenty years, speeding has been a factor in nearly one-third of reported roadway fatalities nationwide.
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.
