Mississippi Car Wrecks
Every day, car wrecks that end in injuries take place in the state of Mississippi. These collisions occur over 300 times per day and injure thousands of people per day. Over 125,000 people are hurt in car crashes every year in the Magnolia State. Over 55,000 individuals are injured in these wrecks and more than 1,000 lose their lives. Some of the most commonly seen injuries that result from car crashes in the United States include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Internal organ damage
Sustaining severe injuries can be painful, difficult, and exhausting. When you’re seriously hurt in a car wreck, your mental, physical, and financial states can all be threatened at the same time. This may be extremely strenuous. Drivers who act negligently cause the majority of the auto accidents reported in the United States. Each year, around 4 million people are hurt by car crashes in the United States. Driver negligence is responsible for more auto collisions than bad weather and car problems combined. Most auto collisions happen due to these common forms of driver negligence:
- Driver distraction
- Driver intoxication
- Drowsy driving
When innocent drivers sustain injuries in auto accidents caused by driver negligence, there are usually legal options available to them to help them recover. A car crash lawyer can help you recover financial compensation that can help you pay for repairs to your vehicle, the costs associated with medical care, wage loss, and more.
