How is fault determined in a Mississippi auto accident case?

In Mississippi, as in many other states, there’s this concept called rules of the road. All drivers are required to operate their vehicles under the rules of the road. In other words, maintain a safe speed, maintain a safe distance between you and the driver in front of you, stop at stop signs, obey the traffic signals, those types of things.

If any of those rules of the road are violated and it causes injury, then that is who would be determined at fault.
