Car Accidents in Mississippi
Tens of thousands of people are hospitalized as a result of car crashes that take place in the state of Mississippi every year. Many of these accidents are entirely preventable. We often see innocent people suffer debilitating spinal cord injuries, internal organ injuries, and even severe compound fractures as a result of driver negligence. Some leading factors in vehicle crashes across the state include:
- Drivers who are impaired by drugs or alcohol while operating their vehicles.
- Drivers who are using their cell phones to talk or text other people.
- Driver inattention due to eating or messing with the radio.
- Drivers who fail to yield to others.
- Drivers who recklessly switch between lanes.
- Drivers who run red lights or even pass stop signs at intersections.
When drivers engage in these and other acts of negligence, they continue to cause harm to innocent drivers and passengers on the road nearby. If another driver’s negligent or reckless actions have caused you harm, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit to hold them accountable.
