Mississippi Auto Collisions
It can be terrifying to sustain injuries in a car crash. Not only is it scary, but it can also be extremely overwhelming and stressful. Financially, it can cost a lot of money to get hurt in an auto accident. The average cost of an emergency room visit in the United States is about $3,300, while the average ambulance ride costs about $900. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you could be paying upwards of about $10,000 to fully recover from your injuries.
The majority of car wrecks in Mississippi and throughout the United States are caused by driver negligence/error. Things like distraction, intoxication, and fatigue contribute to millions of car wrecks every single year. These types of accidents usually result in more severe injuries, like broken bones, neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, head trauma, disfigurement, and more.
Sustaining a severe injury can land you in the hospital for days, weeks, or even months. You may have to undergo invasive and exhausting medical procedures in order to successfully recover. On top of all of this, you may not be able to return to work for an extended period of time, rendering you unable to make a living for yourself and your family members.
