Mississippi Car Crashes
Mississippi car wrecks happen all the time. The Magnolia State sees more than 100,000 car wrecks that injure approximately 60,000 people per year. Over 1,000 people are killed in auto collisions in the state of Mississippi every year.
Auto accidents take the lives of individuals ages 15-20 more than any other cause of death in the US. Car wrecks are among the top ten leading causes of death in the country. Driver negligence causes the majority of these collisions. Negligent drivers are responsible for more than 90% of American auto accidents. This means that close to 6 million car crashes are caused every year by negligent drivers. Currently, distracted driving causes more accidents than any other type of negligent driving. Over 400,000 vehicle collisions are reported per year as a result of distracted driving in the United States. Other prevalent forms of driver negligence include speeding, driver intoxication, and fatigue.
If you or a loved one have recently been seriously injured in a car crash, it is important to determine how the incident occurred and whether you qualify for financial compensation.
