Mississippi Car Accidents
Mississippi car wrecks happen constantly. There are over 100,000 car wrecks reported in the Magnolia State per year. Over 1,000 people are killed in these accidents annually while more than 50,000 sustain injuries.
People ages 15-20 are killed by car wrecks more than any other cause of death in the nation. Auto collisions are one of the top ten causes of fatalities in the United States. Alarmingly, driver negligence is the main reason most of these accidents occur. Negligent drivers cause four out of five accidents reported in the country. This means that almost 6 million auto wrecks happen due to the actions of negligent drivers every single year. Currently, distracted driving is the most commonly seen form of driver negligence. More than 400,000 car accidents are caused by distracted drivers every year. Other common types of driver negligence include speeding, driver intoxication, and fatigue.
If you or a loved one have recently sustained injuries in an accident, it is vital to figure out how/why the wreck occurred, especially if you know it wasn’t your fault. If you believe your wreck was caused by the actions of a negligent driver, you deserve to collect compensation for the damages you endured. You may be eligible to collect financial compensation that can help you pay for lost wages, repairs to your vehicle, and more.
