Car Accidents in Mississippi
Every day, innocent people throughout Mississippi are left injured as a result of motor vehicle accidents. In many cases, people are hurt as a result of car crashes where motorists engage in negligent actions while behind the wheel.
There are several types of motor vehicle collisions that are reported statewide every year. One of the most common types of crashes reported annually is head-on collisions. These accidents occur when two vehicles crash into each other front to front. These accidents can result in severe damage to the involved vehicles, almost always resulting in them being totaled due to the airbags being deployed. Victims involved in head-on crashes often suffer severe injuries.
Another type of vehicle collision commonly reported is the rear-end accident. These accidents occur when the front of one vehicle plows into the rear of the second vehicle. Tailgating and speeding are some of the leading factors identified in rear-end crashes. Distractions can and often do cause these collisions as well.
Finally, T-bone crashes are another type of collision commonly reported here in Mississippi. These accidents often result from drivers running red lights or passing stop signs at intersections. These accidents occur when a vehicle crashes into the side of another vehicle. In many cases, T-bone collisions result in rollovers.
