High-Speed Crashes in Mississippi
Speeding is a common factor in deadly car accidents across Mississippi, being involved in nearly 15% of the state’s traffic fatalities each year. Thousands of people are killed nationally by speeding drivers in the United States. In 2018, a total of 9,378 people lost their lives in high-speed crashes nationally, an average of 25 deaths per day. Over the past two decades, speeding has been a factor in nearly one-third of reported fatalities across the country.
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.
