Mississippi Car Accidents

In Mississippi, car wrecks happen every single day. Most of these collisions are fender benders, however, some of them do result in serious injuries and even death for those involved. In 2016, almost 700 people lost their lives in auto accidents in the state of Mississippi. These collisions happen in many different ways, however, head-on accidents are some of the most catastrophic. Recently in the US, only about 2% of reported auto collisions were deemed head-on crashes, however, about 10% of those accidents were fatal. If you have recently lost someone you love in a fatal auto crash, working with a personal injury attorney could prove to be your saving grace in terms of financial recovery.
