Mississippi Car Accidents
More injuries and fatalities happen in the United States due to car accidents than any other type of accident. According to statistics concerning car wrecks in the US, approximately 17,000 auto wrecks occur in the United States every single day. Each day, approximately 7,500 people sustain injuries in these accidents. When you or a loved one of yours has been injured in an accident, it is important to be able to determine who or what caused it.
Especially if you believe that driver negligence was the reason the wreck occurred, you may be eligible to collect compensation. Crash victims are often caught off guard by the injuries they sustain in auto accidents. These injuries can change their lives for the foreseeable future, and sometimes even forever, depending on their severity. A car crash lawyer can help you recover in more ways than one if you believe that you’ve been hurt by the negligence of another driver.
A car crash lawyer’s main goal is to help you figure out how your accident happened so you can get the financial compensation you need to make a full recovery. Unfortunately, those who sustain injuries in car wrecks are often forced to pay steep medical bills, vehicle repairs, and usually suffer wage loss that is difficult to come back from. An attorney can assist you in financially recovering after you’ve been severely injured in a collision. Some of the main reasons car wrecks occur in the US are:
- Driver error/negligence: Driver error can be demonstrated in many ways. Usually, negligent drivers act irresponsibly by speeding, texting, talking on the phone, or disobeying traffic laws.
- Poor road conditions: Broken roads, potholes, inclement weather, debris on the roadway, missing guardrails, and more can make for dangerous road conditions that can lead to accidents.
- Malfunctioning vehicle. Vehicle malfunctions can occur with bad brakes, steering wheels, tires, ignition switches, and more.
If you or a loved one of yours has been injured in an accident caused by driver negligence, you may be eligible to collect financial compensation. Compensation can help you recover financially after you’ve been hurt in a crash. The average cost of making a full recovery after being hurt in a wreck is around $65,000 in terms of hospitalization. The average American simply does not have this kind of money to dish out all at once.
