Car Accidents in Mississippi
Year after year, Mississippi has the highest rate of vehicle fatalities in the nation. In fact, the state has had the highest traffic fatality rate in the United States all but three years since 1999. The leading cause of serious crashes in the state is intoxicated driving, which is involved in roughly 30% of reported traffic fatalities in Mississippi each year. The second-most common cause of collisions in the state is speeding, which is involved in around 15% of traffic fatalities in the state.
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.
