Reckless Driving Accidents in Mississippi
Driving can be particularly dangerous when sharing the road with a reckless driver. Unfortunately, reckless driving runs rampant in Mississippi, and many drivers in the state are prone to engaging in negligent actions behind the wheel. There are more than 13,000 traffic fatalities reported annually attributable to reckless driving, accounting for roughly one-third of roadway deaths nationwide.
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.
