Auto Accidents in Mississippi
In 2020, there were significantly more serious injuries caused by car accidents in Mississippi than in previous years. From 2014 through 2018, there were less than 1,000 injuries each year, with the lowest number occurring in car accidents (633 injuries in 2014) and the highest amount (781 injuries in 2016). But according to the statistics, the number of people hurt in car accidents grew to 1,579 in 2019 and then more than doubled to 3,603 in 2020. The state’s issue with serious injuries from auto accidents appears to be growing worse, according to this pattern.
Even the most cautious drivers can get into vehicle accidents, therefore, it’s important for people who are hurt in collisions to pursue the compensation to which they are entitled if a negligent driver was to blame for their injuries and caused the incident. In Mississippi, many individuals must drive in order to get by, therefore, the chance of being in an accident is an unfortunate but inevitable part of being on the road. Our attorneys wish to assist you because many victims of auto accidents have received full and just compensation following a collision with them.
