Mississippi Car Crashes
Every year, more than 5 million car crashes are reported in the United States. Across the Magnolia State, hundreds of thousands of yearly auto accidents take place. These collisions send about 2 million people to the hospital per year and take the lives of more than 40,000. One of the most alarming facts about these accidents is that they are mostly caused by driver negligence.
In the past ten years, driver negligence has become more common throughout the United States. A Stanford Law School report estimated between 90 and 99% of American auto accidents are caused partially or totally by driver error/negligence. In today’s world, a driver’s attention may be diverted in far too many ways. From GPS to cell phones to radios, drivers have numerous places to avert their eyes.
If you or a loved one of yours has been injured in an auto accident, you can file a personal injury lawsuit against the liable party. This is the best way to collect compensation for the damages and injuries you may be facing.
