Reckless Driving Incidents in Mississippi
The actions of a reckless driver can put even the safest motorist at risk of being injured in a collision. Reckless driving is involved in nearly three out of every ten reported vehicle collisions, and human error is a factor in roughly 90% of reported auto accidents. Recklessness on Mississippi roads can take many forms, and drunk driving is a particular concern in the state. Nearly 30% of annual traffic fatalities in the state involve an intoxicated motorist.
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.
