Mississippi Car Accidents
Serious car crashes happen daily across Mississippi and are the leading cause of death and serious injury for state residents. The state has had the highest vehicle fatality rate in the nation nearly every year since 1999. Hundreds are killed in vehicle collisions across the state each year, and nearly 30% of reported roadway fatalities are caused by drunk drivers. Nearly 22% of Mississippi drivers fail to wear a seatbelt while operating a motor vehicle.
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.
