Car Accidents in Mississippi
Automobile accidents have a devastating impact on the lives of people in our state every day. Unfortunately, thousands of people are hospitalized each year as a result of collisions. There are many reasons why accidents continue to occur. The majority of accidents take place as a result of negligence.
One major cause of car accidents is distracted driving. This can include anything from talking on the phone to eating while behind the wheel. It’s important to always stay focused when driving, as even a momentary distraction can lead to an accident.
Another common cause of car accidents is speeding. Speeding is one of the leading causes of fatal car accidents nationwide, and Mississippi is no exception.
Drunk driving is also a major cause of car accidents in Mississippi. Drivers who are impaired are often unable to control their vehicles in a responsible manner. We see many accidents happen as a result of vehicles drifting into other lanes or failing to stop in time to avoid a collision.
Weather can also contribute to car accidents, particularly during severe weather events such as thunderstorms, tornadoes, and hurricanes. If possible, try to avoid driving during these times or use extra caution if you must be on the roadways.
If you were hurt as a result of a crash that was caused by a negligent driver, you may be able to file a personal injury case against them. A car accident lawyer in Oxford can help you pursue legal action following your crash.
