High-Speed Accidents in Mississippi
The rate of speed involved in a crash can determine the severity of the resulting injuries. When drivers exceed the speed limit, they are at risk of causing a catastrophic collision. The injuries related to a high-speed collision are typically much more severe than low-speed crashes, and thousands of Americans are killed annually by speeding drivers. Nearly 15% of annual traffic fatalities in Mississippi involve speeding-related crashes.
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.
