High-Speed Crashes in Mississippi
Speeding is a roadway safety concern that can greatly increase your risk of being involved in a collision. Each year, thousands of people are killed in high-speed crashes across the country, and over the past two decades, speeding has been involved in nearly one-third of traffic fatalities in the United States. Speeding is prevalent in Mississippi and is involved in roughly 15% of the state’s traffic fatalities each year. Drivers who speed are more likely to lose control of their vehicles and cause catastrophic accidents.
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.
