Mississippi Car Accidents
Every year, thousands of people are hurt in car wrecks throughout the Magnolia State. All too often, victims must spend days, weeks, or longer in the hospital recovering after they sustain injuries in vehicle accidents. Some of the most common injuries suffered in auto accidents include:
- Spinal Cord Injuries: Depending on the location of the injury, victims may lose the ability to walk or use their arms.
- Traumatic Brain Injuries: Brain injuries may cause extreme pain and a lot of suffering. These injuries can result in mood swings, balance problems, and memory issues.
- Broken Bones: Crash victims who break bones often have to wear casts for months after their wrecks. Depending on the severity of the incident, victims may need to undergo surgery so they can fully heal from broken bones.
In Mississippi, a substantial number of crashes happen due to the negligent actions of drivers. Leading factors include:
- Running stop signs/red lights
