High-Speed Car Accidents in Mississippi
When a driver is hurtling down the road at a high rate of speed, the danger of a car accident is increased significantly. Excess speeds can magnify the severity of resulting injuries and increase the risk of losing control of a vehicle. Across the United States, thousands are killed annually by speeding drivers, and nearly 15% of annual traffic fatalities in Mississippi involve high-speed crashes.
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.
