Texting and driving is a form of driver negligence that is inexcusable and totally preventable.

Proving Driver Negligence in Mississippi
In Mississippi, it is illegal to text while driving. Sadly, many people still do, and often get away with it until they cause an accident. When texting while driving is the cause of a car crash, it provides an opportunity to hold the driver responsible for your injuries. If necessary, our firm can request the court to grant access to the driver’s phone records to prove that he or she was using a cellphone at the time of the crash.
