Mississippi Car Accidents

Mississippi Car AccidentsCar accidents happen all too frequently in the United States and across the state of Mississippi. Per year, the country sees millions of car crashes that cause injuries and fatalities for countless people. Averagely speaking, more than 3 million people are hurt in car crashes throughout the nation each year. In the state of Mississippi alone, over 100,000 car crashes occur each and every year that injure tens of thousands of people. 

Alarmingly, most of these traffic collisions happen due to the actions of negligent drivers. Distracted driving has become a prevalent issue in the United States over the past ten years. Smartphones and other technology like GPS, tablets, and radios have added to the long list of distractions drivers may experience while behind the wheel. The number of drivers in Mississippi who admit to reading or sending text messages while driving is unnerving; over 75%. 

When you or a loved one have been seriously injured by the actions of a negligent driver, it is important to know where to turn for help. You should not have to go broke paying for injuries that were imposed upon you by a negligent party. The costs related to your medical care, vehicle repair costs, and other expenses that may stem from your accident could be difficult to pay for on your own. A car crash lawyer will help negotiate a full and fair settlement from the opposing driver’s insurance company so you can focus on your recovery without worrying.
