Mississippi Car Crashes
Car accidents in the state of Mississippi happen more than 100,000 times per year, leaving over 60,000 people with injuries. Oftentimes, these wrecks are the result of drivers who choose to engage in negligent and reckless behavior while behind the wheel. When drivers are distracted, intoxicated, or overly fatigued, they put their lives and the lives of those they are sharing the road with in grave danger. Unfortunately, thousands of people involved in collisions are left with severe, debilitating injuries that require immediate and long-term medical care. Some of the most prevalent injuries that occur in car crashes include:
- Compound fractures that require casting and surgery
- Severe spinal cord injuries that may result in paralysis
- Traumatic brain injuries may result in overwhelming pain, memory loss, and reduced quality of life
- Internal organ damage that may be life-threatening
When individuals suffer severe injuries like these, it is essential that they act in a timely manner in order to preserve their legal rights. Usually, injured victims who have been hurt by the negligent actions of another are eligible to collect compensation for the damages they face.
