Mississippi Car Crashes
Sustaining serious injuries in an auto collision can be a stressful experience. The lives of those injured in auto collisions can be totally altered by their wrecks and the injuries they sustain. Injured crash victims usually need immediate and sometimes long-term medical care. They are usually rushed from the crash scene to local hospitals by ambulance.
It can be extremely expensive to get the medical care you need to make a full recovery from a severe injury. Ambulance rides in the United States cost approximately $3,000, while the hospitalization needed to make a full recovery from a severe car crash injury can cost more than $50,000. This exceeds the amount of money the average US citizen has to spare on short notice.
If you or your loved one sustained injuries in an auto accident caused by driver negligence, depending on the nature of the crash, you may qualify for financial compensation. Even if you were partially at fault for the incident, as long as you are not more than 50% at fault, you will be able to collect financial compensation to help you recover. For example, if you were found to be 20% at fault for the wreck, you’d be eligible to collect 80% of the financial compensation available to you. A lawyer will negotiate a full and fair settlement from the insurance company for you so you can get the money you need to get your life back on track.
Each year, millions of auto accidents are caused by driver negligence in Mississippi and throughout the United States. These wrecks usually result in serious injuries, long-term hospital stays, and even death.
