Mississippi Auto Collisions

Covington County, MS - James Jackson, Christine Gardner, Marian Winn Killed in Fatal Accident on MS-35

Mississippi sees an alarming number of auto collisions. In fact, every year, tens of thousands of accidents occur across the Magnolia State. Some of these end in injuries and even fatalities for victims. Crashes that end in injuries and fatalities are usually caused by driver negligence. Every year, in the United States, over 93% of the reported auto collisions are caused by the actions of negligent drivers. 

On average, approximately 600 individuals end up dying per year in auto collisions throughout the state of Mississippi. Unfortunately, the majority of these accidents happen due to driver negligence. 

In the past ten years, driver negligence has risen to the top of the list of reasons why American car accidents happen. Drivers in the United States display negligence in several different ways, ranging from distraction to fatigue and intoxication. These types of negligence, and any form of careless or reckless driving end in injuries and loss of life more often than anyone would like to admit.
