Mississippi Auto Collisions
Sustaining serious injuries in a car crash can be a difficult experience. Depending on how severe the wreck is, individuals involved may have to spend time in the hospital recovering. While there, they may have to undergo extensive and invasive medical procedures that can be costly and exhausting. Being stuck in the hospital can mean forced time off of work, which can result in lost wages and possibly even job loss. This can be extremely stressful for injured victims.
The number of people injured in serious car crashes in the United States continues to rise every year. On average, over 6 million vehicle accidents are reported annually in the United States. Of these wrecks, between three and four million people sustain injuries and more than 35,000 lose their lives. In one recent year, over 40,000 people were killed in annual auto accidents in the country. The causes of these wrecks vary, however, most of the time, they are caused by driver negligence. Driver intoxication, distraction, fatigue, and speeding lead to millions of collisions per year that injure and take the lives of millions of people.
