Auto Collisions in Mississippi
Car crashes have become a serious issue in the United States and in Mississippi. Information provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that more than 38,000 people lost their lives in traffic collisions in 2020, which is more than in 2019, despite fewer people on the roads due to the pandemic. Additionally, more than 4.4 million people sustained injuries in auto collisions in 2019.
In Mississippi, tens of thousands of people suffer injuries in car crashes every single year. Auto collisions not only pose a significant threat to public safety, but they also cause substantial economic costs, including lost productivity, medical care costs, and property damage. More often than not, auto collisions happen due to the actions of negligent drivers. Some of these actions may include driving while intoxicated, distracted, or at unsafe speeds. All drivers owe one another a reasonable duty of care, and when this duty is breached, serious injuries and even fatalities may result.
