Reckless Driving Accidents in Mississippi
The actions you take behind the wheel can have an impact on those around you. Mississippi drivers have a well-deserved reputation for reckless behavior on the road. Drunk driving and speeding are commonplace across the state, contributing to a significant number of fatal crashes each year. Statistics show that an estimated 22% of drivers in the state fail to wear a seatbelt while riding in a motor vehicle.
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.
