High-Speed Crashes in Mississippi
When drivers exceed the speed limit, they are at greater risk of causing a catastrophic collision. Speeding has been a factor in nearly one-third of reported traffic fatalities over the past twenty years in the United States, with thousands of Americans dying annually in high-speed collisions. In 2018, nearly 25 people were killed daily by speeding motorists, contributing to 9,378 traffic fatalities that year.
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.
