Speeding-Related Crashes in Mississippi
Speeding is a serious safety concern on Mississippi roadways. Thousands of people are killed annually in high-speed crashes across the United States, with a total of 9,378 people dying in 2018 alone. Mississippi drivers have a bad habit of speeding, and an estimated 15% of the state’s traffic fatalities involve speeding drivers. Over the past twenty years, speeding has been a factor in roughly one-third of traffic fatalities nationwide.
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.
