High-Speed Accidents in Mississippi
Drivers who speed are more likely to cause catastrophic car accidents. In Mississippi, an estimated 15% of roadway fatalities involve high-speed crashes. Across the country, speeding has been a factor in roughly one-third of traffic fatalities over the past twenty years, and thousands of people lose their lives each year in high-speed collisions. In 2018 alone, there were 9,378 reported deaths, with 25 people dying in high-speed crashes each day.
Dealing with the aftermath of a serious crash is a long and frustrating process, and many Mississippi car crash victims are unprepared to protect their rights. The financial impact of medical care, repair bills, and lost wages can be extremely disruptive to our lives and leave accident victims in a difficult financial and emotional situation. Unfortunately, when victims depend solely on insurance companies to recover lost compensation, they often feel even more alone and confused, making the situation even worse.
