You don’t Have to Prove the Other Driver Was Speeding to Have a Strong Case
It is not always necessary to prove a driver was speeding at the time of an accident to hold them responsible. In many cases, exceeding the posted speed limit was only a contributing cause of the collision. It may have been why the driver made another careless or reckless mistake behind the wheel, and this directly caused the accident.
For example, imagine a driver is approaching a red light but is exceeding the posted speed limit and cannot slow down enough to stop before the intersection. Running the red light directly caused the accident, but their speed played a significant role. They may have citations for both offenses, depending on how the responding officer handled the incident and the evidence to show their previous speed.
File Your Lawsuit Before Your Time Runs Out
Act quickly to determine your next steps following your Pascagoula traffic accident. While Miss. Code Ann. §15-1-49, the Mississippi statute of limitations on personal injury cases, has a limit of three years, you have many steps to navigate before your lawyer files a civil suit and prepares your case for trial.
Some evidence does not last long following a traffic accident. Nearby businesses record over video from the day of the collision, eyewitnesses’ memories fade, and some evidence, such as tire marks on the street, are lost as soon as it rains or there is heavy traffic in the area. The sooner we can begin to look into an accident, the better the chance of recovering key evidence to prove the case.

Recoverable Losses in a Mississippi Traffic Accident Claim
The goal of filing an auto liability insurance claim or pursuing a civil case against a speeding driver is to hold them accountable and recover compensation. This compensation is based on the damages you suffered as a result of the collision they caused.
Without this type of financial recovery, you might have to pay for your medical treatment, car repairs, time away from work, and other expenses on your own. In addition, you would not receive payment for the intangible losses you sustained, including pain and suffering, diminished quality of life, and the emotional stress you endured.
When we investigate a Pascagoula traffic accident for a client, part of our investigation centers on identifying their recoverable damages and determining a fair settlement value for their case. We use this total during our settlement negotiations to know if an offer adequately compensates our clients for their losses. We also use this evidence of losses if we need to go to trial.
