Reckless Driving Accidents in Mississippi
Mississippi is well-known for its risky and irresponsible driving. According to the Mississippi Department of Health, over 75% of adult drivers confess to talking on cell phones while driving. More than 30% of adult drivers admitted to reading, writing, or sending texts while behind the wheel of a car. An estimated 21% of motorists aged 15 to 19 were sidetracked by a smartphone before a fatal car accident.
If you or someone you care about was hurt in a car accident perpetrated by someone else, you may be entitled to compensation. Because Mississippi is a pure comparative negligence state, bringing a damages claim after a car accident might be difficult. Insurance firms try to deny claims or decrease compensation wherever feasible. Even if you believe the other party is entirely to blame, the insurance company will almost certainly claim that you bear some of the blame to save some cash.
If you were hurt in a Mississippi car accident caused by a negligent driver, you have the legal option to sue for lost compensation. The incident’s perpetrators must be held responsible for their acts. At Germany Law Firm PLLC, we are committed to obtaining justice for our clients.
