Auto collisions are unfortunately very common in the United States and throughout the state of Mississippi.

In Mississippi, auto accidents happen more than 125,000 times per year.
Alarmingly, the majority of auto accidents that happen are caused by the negligence of drivers. Driver negligence has become a serious problem in the past ten years. With the popularity of smartphones and other devices rising, distracted driving is becoming more and more common, and more severe.
According to information from the NHTSA, distracted driving causes more than 260,000 injuries per year in the United States.
It is extremely dangerous to avert your attention from the road and your surroundings while you’re driving. You may think you’re safe if you only look away for a couple of seconds, however, depending on how fast you’re going, you could have driven the length of a football field or more without looking at the road. This is extremely dangerous and could lead to serious injuries or death for you or those you pass on the road.
The thought of seriously injuring another person should be enough of a deterrent, however, negligent drivers are everywhere. More than 400,000 auto wrecks are reported per year due to distracted driving, with more than 3,000 fatalities related to those accidents.
