Mississippi Reckless Driving Crashes
The dangers of careless driving are more than evident on Mississippi roadways, and statistics show that around 31% of all traffic fatalities in the United States are thought to be caused by driver distraction. Over 13,000 people are killed each year by reckless motorists.
In fact, three out of every ten car accidents are caused by distracted driving. Even if you drive as cautiously as possible on the road, you could still be involved in an accident caused by a negligent driver.
You have the right to pursue a negligence claim for your injuries if you were harmed in an accident caused by the conduct of a negligent party. All drivers in Mississippi are obligated to act in a way that does not put others in danger. Failure to do so may be construed as negligence, and injured parties may be entitled to seek compensation for their injuries. An experienced attorney can help victims pursue a personal injury claim.
For people with little legal knowledge, pursuing a personal injury claim can be a long and difficult procedure. You don’t have to go it alone. A skilled Madison personal injury attorney can help you get the most money possible under the law.
