Mississippi Car Wrecks
Car accidents happen constantly in Mississippi. More than 300 auto collisions are reported every single day in Mississippi, which is equal to around 125,000 per year. Most car accidents happen because drivers choose to act negligently while behind the wheel. Though other things can cause accidents, like inclement weather and vehicle malfunctions, driver negligence causes over 90% of the auto collisions reported in the United States.
Driver negligence is punishable by hefty fines and sometimes even jail time in Mississippi. When you or someone you love has been hurt by a negligent driver, you may be suffering in numerous ways.
