Fighting For Distracted Driving Accident Victims in Mississippi

Driving is one of the most dangerous activities you can do. Every time you get behind the wheel, you are taking a risk. You are trusting your life to the engineering and design of the vehicle, the skill of the manufacturer, and your own ability to operate the vehicle. You are trusting that other drivers will obey the rules of the road and that they won't make mistakes. Unfortunately, the reality is that all of these assumptions are wrong.

People make mistakes. People don't always follow the rules and sometimes they do things that are dangerous and even deadly. This happens every time someone takes their attention away from the road in order to write a text, make a call, or adjust the infotainment console of their car.

At Gulf South Law Firm, we believe that no one should have to suffer an injury because of someone else's carelessness. That is why we fight for the rights of injury victims. If you were injured in a car accident, you should be compensated for your injuries and the damage to your property. You shouldn't have to pay for the damage to your car, the medical bills, or the pain and suffering you are experiencing. You shouldn't have to struggle to get by on a limited income when you should be able to focus on your health and your family.

We can help you if you were injured in a car accident caused by a distracted driver. We are ready to fight for you. Call (228) 231-3989 to learn more about your legal options.

How Do We Prove That Distracted Driving Caused the Accident?

Distracted driving accidents are difficult to prove. This is because distracted drivers often deny that they were doing anything that could be considered dangerous.

hey might say that they were just talking on the phone. They might say that they were just eating or grooming. They might say that they were just adjusting the radio or watching a video. They might say that they were just doing something that is perfectly legal and perfectly safe. The problem is that many of these things are not perfectly safe when you are driving.

Even something that is perfectly legal can be dangerous when you are driving. That is why distracted driving is dangerous. That is why distracted driving causes car accidents. That is why distracted driving causes fatal car accidents.
