Car Accidents in Mississippi
Officials estimate that tens of thousands of victims are hurt in serious Mississippi car accidents each year. Car accidents happen in many common areas throughout the state but our major highways are among the most common. Highways are known as dangerous areas because drivers are traveling at high speeds when they are involved in collisions, in most cases. They could also be engaged in any of the following negligent acts:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Driving while distracted
When a driver is not focused on the road in front of them, an accident could happen within seconds and affect every aspect of your life. This is why it is crucial that you have the help of a legal advocate on your side.
