Speeding-Related Crashes in Oxford
Speeding is a common factor in deadly car accidents across the country, and Mississippi drivers have a bad habit of exceeding the speed limit. Each year, an estimated 15% of the state’s traffic fatalities involve high-speed collisions. Thousands of Americans lose their lives annually in high-speed crashes, with a total of 9,378 people dying in 2018 alone. That year, an estimated 25 people were killed annually by speeding drivers.
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.
