Mississippi Auto Accidents
Most of the car wrecks that happen in Mississippi involve multiple vehicles. Auto accidents happen over 100,000 times per year in the Magnolia State. More than 55,000 people suffer injuries in these wrecks per year. Unfortunately, the majority of these collisions are caused by the actions of negligent drivers.
These accidents can happen in minutes and affect the lives of injured victims for years to come. Auto accidents can take place anywhere, however, many of them happen at intersections and on highways.
Every year, the United States sees millions of auto collisions. Per year, around 6 million collisions are reported in the country that injure over 3 million people. More than 35,000 people are killed in these collisions per year. As previously referenced, a large percentage of these wrecks occur at intersections and on highways. In one recent year, over 2.5 million accidents occurred at intersections alone in the United States.
When you’re hurt in a car crash, it is important to figure out how or why the wreck happened, especially if it was not your fault. Financial compensation could be awarded to you in the event that you suffer significant financial, physical, and mental losses/damages in relation to your accident. If another person caused the crash that you were injured in, you do not deserve to have to pay to recover. In fact, the law says that you are eligible to collect financial compensation for a number of different damages. These include medical care, vehicle repairs, lost wages, and more.
A lawyer can help you file a personal injury claim for compensation, particularly if you have suffered significant injuries.
Included among these injuries are the following:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Bone breaks
- Organ damage
Injured victims are usually stuck in the hospital for prolonged periods of time where they have to go through invasive, expensive, and extensive medical care. While stuck in the hospital, they will probably miss a lot of work and maybe even lose their job. This can cause financial burdens, stress, and problems in a person’s life.
