Reckless Driving Crashes in Mississippi
The rules of the road are intended to keep everyone safe, but when drivers fail to follow them, there is a greater risk of a serious injury collision. An estimated three out of every ten car accidents involve reckless driving, and nearly 90% of vehicle collisions are due to some form of human error. Drunk driving is a prevalent safety concern in Mississippi and is involved in nearly 30% of traffic fatalities in the state each year.
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.
