Reckless Driving Crashes in Mississippi
The actions of a reckless driver are unpredictable and are known to contribute to serious collisions. Mississippi drivers have a reputation for behaving recklessly behind the wheel. Drunk driving is a particular concern in the state and is involved in nearly 30% of annual traffic fatalities statewide. Speeding is another predominant factor in deadly Mississippi car wrecks, accounting for roughly 15% of deadly crashes in the state.
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.
