Mississippi Car Wrecks
The state of Mississippi sees more than 125,000 auto accidents per year. Over 55,000 people are hurt in these accidents and more than 1,000 lose their lives. Mississippi car wrecks happen more often than auto accidents in many other states. The alarming fact concerning car wrecks in the United States is not only the large number of them but the most common cause.
Currently, driver distraction is the leading cause of car crashes in the United States. This means that the majority of the millions of auto collisions that happen in the US every year are preventable. Every year, over 400,000 people are injured in accidents caused by driver distraction in the US. On average, there are about 6 million car crashes in the United States every year. Three million people total sustain injuries in these accidents annually.
The fact that millions of people choose to look at their phones or pay attention to anything else other than the roadway for long enough to cause an accident is disheartening. If you or someone you love has been hurt by a negligent driver, you should contact a car crash lawyer who can help you figure out how to financially recover so you can focus on your well-being.
