Reckless Driving Crashes in Mississippi
When drivers behave negligently, they are more likely to cause a catastrophic collision. Each year, an estimated 90% of reported car crashes are caused by human error. The most prominent form of reckless driving in Mississippi is driver intoxication, which is involved in nearly 30% of the state’s traffic fatalities each year. The state’s drivers also have a bad habit of speeding, accounting for around 15% of roadway deaths in Mississippi.
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.
