Each year, thousands of people are hurt as a result of motor vehicle accidents that occur in Mississippi. Far too often, victims have to go through several weeks or even months of medical treatment for the injuries they suffered. Some common injuries reported in car crashes across our state include:

  • Spinal Cord Injuries: Depending on where the injury occurs, victims may lose the ability to use their legs or both their legs and arms.
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries: Brain injuries can be extremely painful and cause a great deal of suffering. These injuries can result in mood instability, balance problems, and memory loss.
  • Broken Bones: These injuries often force victims to wear casts for several months after accidents. In severe cases, victims have to undergo surgery in order to heal from broken bones.
