Speeding-Related Crashes in Mississippi
A speeding motorist is more likely to be involved in a catastrophic collision. Over the past twenty years, speeding has been involved in nearly one-third of reported traffic fatalities nationwide. Mississippi drivers have a bad habit of exceeding the speed limit, and an estimated 15% of annual roadway deaths in the state are attributable to speeding drivers.
If you have been injured in a Mississippi car accident, you have the right to pursue a negligence claim for your injuries. Anyone who gets behind the wheel has to exercise reasonable care to obey the traffic laws of the State of Mississippi. Failure to do so may constitute negligence and give rise to a claim for lost damages for the injured party. The personal injury claim is a long and confusing process for those with little experience in the law, but you do not have to do it alone.
