Mississippi Auto Collisions
Each year, there are over 5 million reported car crashes in the United States. Throughout the Magnolia State, hundreds of thousands of yearly auto accidents occur per year. These accidents send about 2 million individuals to the hospital per year and end the lives of over 40,000. One of the most alarming facts related to these wrecks is that they are mostly caused by negligent drivers.
In the past decade, driver negligence has become more prevalent throughout the country. A Stanford Law School report estimated between 90 and 99% of car accidents in the U.S. are caused partially or completely 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.
