Mississippi Auto Accidents
Hundreds of people are injured each year in Mississippi car accidents while thousands of others are killed. On many occasions, innocent people are injured due to the actions of negligent drivers.
Many car accidents in Mississippi are caused by drunk driving. Impaired drivers are usually unable to properly control their vehicles which often leads to severe and catastrophic accidents. We sometimes see impaired drivers crash into vehicles at intersections and engage in other dangerous behaviors like drifting into other lanes.
Car accidents are also caused by driver distraction. Whether you’re texting, talking on the or simply not paying attention to the road ahead of you, distracted driving is a dangerous act that leads to hundreds of thousands of accidents in the United States every year.
Failing to yield is another common cause of car accidents. When you’re turning or merging, make sure you yield to oncoming traffic. Don’t assume they’ll see you; make sure they do before you proceed.
