Speeding-Related Crashes in Mississippi
Drivers who speed are more likely to be involved in catastrophic car accidents for many reasons. Exceeding the speed limit makes it more difficult to control a vehicle properly and magnifies the severity of resulting injuries. An estimated 15% of traffic fatalities in Mississippi reported annually are caused by speeding drivers. Nationwide, thousands are killed by speeding drivers each year.
In order to recover compensation after a crash, you have to determine that the negligence of another party directly contributed to your injuries.
