Reckless Driving Crashes in Mississippi
When drivers engage in reckless actions behind the wheel, they are more likely to cause catastrophic car accidents. Nearly one-third of deadly collisions in the United States are caused by reckless drivers, contributing to nearly 13,000 traffic fatalities each year. Drunk driving is a serious safety issue in Mississippi, and nearly 30% of the state’s deadly collisions are caused by drunk drivers. An estimated 90% of reported car accidents in the United States are caused by human error.
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.
