Mississippi Car Crashes
When you or your loved ones sustain severe injuries in an auto accident, it can be difficult to recover. The consequences can be painful and scary, not to mention serious and long-lasting. Every year, over 3 million people are hurt in car wrecks in the United States, the majority of which are caused by driver negligence. In the state of Mississippi alone, over 100,000 auto collisions happen per year. In these accidents, more than 55,000 individuals are injured badly enough to have to spend time recovering in the hospital. Each year, more than 30,000 individuals lose their lives in accidents in the United States. Alarmingly, the majority of these collisions are caused by driver negligence. The car crash rate in the United States is the highest in the entire world.
To operate or ride as a passenger inside a vehicle can be dangerous due to the existence of negligent drivers. Being unable to trust the drivers you encounter on the roadway creates an imminent risk of traffic accidents. Drivers must remain sober, alert, and aware while they operate their vehicles.
Every year, more than 4,000 kids lose their lives in car crashes, as reported by the New York Times. This is hard to accept, especially knowing that the majority of the auto accidents reported in the United States are the result of driver negligence. Driver fatigue, distraction, and intoxication can cause severe accidents that seriously injure those involved.
