Speeding-Related Crashes in Mississippi
When drivers speed, they are more likely to be involved in a catastrophic car accident. Not only does exceeding the speed limit increase the likelihood of a crash, but it is also known to magnify the severity of resulting injuries. Each year, an estimated 15% of Mississippi traffic fatalities are caused by speeding drivers. Speeding has been a factor in roughly one-third of reported traffic fatalities over the past twenty years in the United States.
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. Unfortunately, when victims depend solely on insurance companies to recover lost compensation, they often feel even more alone and confused, making the situation even worse.
