High-Speed Crashes in Mississippi
Speeding is a primary factor in deadly car accidents across the country. On average, nearly 15% of traffic fatalities in Mississippi involve speeding drivers. Speeding was involved in nearly one-third of traffic fatalities across the country in the past twenty years. In 2018, 9,378 people were killed by speeding drivers, an average of 25 deaths per day. When drivers speed, they are more likely to lose control of their vehicles and cause serious collisions.
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.
