Mississippi Auto Accidents
According to information provided by the Centers for Disease Control, more than 32,000 people lose their lives, and over 3 million sustain injuries every year in American car crashes. These collisions have the potential to have a devastating impact on victims and their family members. People may suffer life-altering injuries that force them to miss time off of work, struggle to pay steep medical bills and worry about where they can turn for help.
The aftermath of a serious crash can be confusing and overwhelming. You may wonder about the fairness of the settlement offered to you by insurance companies. While you may be able to estimate the value of your claim based on your medical care costs or your pay stubs, some crash victims and their family members may not be aware that they can also collect compensation for future rehabilitation fees, future medical care costs, future wage loss, pain, suffering, and other damages.

Auto crash injuries may be mild or significant, however, all injuries may negatively affect your life. The most severe collisions may result in traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries. Some of these types of injuries can impact victims for the rest of their lives. For example, the cost of medical care associated with high tetraplegia, a condition associated with damage to the brain and/or spinal cord which causes the full or partial loss of function in all four limbs, can be over $1,000,000 for the first year alone.
