Mississippi Auto Accidents
Car accidents are extremely common in Mississippi, happening over 100,000 times per year. Tens of thousands sustain injuries in these collisions yearly while thousands lose their lives. The main cause of auto collisions in the United States and throughout the state of Mississippi is driver negligence.
In the past ten years, driver negligence has been responsible for 9 out of 10 auto accidents in the US. Over-tired, intoxicated, speeding, and distracted drivers cause countless accidents every single year that end in injuries and fatalities for unsuspecting victims. When you or someone you love has been hurt in a car wreck caused by driver negligence, you may be able to work with a lawyer who can help you recover financially. Speaking with an auto accident attorney is in your best interest. Filing a personal injury claim for compensation can help you pay for the costs related to your accident.
Negligent driving is a selfish and dangerous act. More than 400,000 car accidents are caused by distracted driving every year, while approximately 3,000 people are killed annually due to this specific type of driver negligence. Choosing to divert your attention from the road in front of you while you’re behind the wheel of a vehicle is destructive and dangerous, not to mention potentially deadly.
