Mississippi Auto Collisions

Starkville, MS - One Killed, Three Hurt in Auto Collision on Hwy 12 near Bluefield Rd

Auto accidents are one of the main reasons individuals in the United States end up seriously hurt or dead. In fact, individuals aged 15-20 most often lose their lives due to severe auto accidents that occur throughout the country. Every day, over 17,000 car accidents are reported across the nation. Of these accidents, about 7,500 people end up seriously injured, and over 100 people lose their lives. Car accidents have historically happened for countless reasons; however, driver negligence has become the main contributing factor among most American road accidents. 

Driver negligence has become a problematic and dangerous issue in the United States, especially in the past decade. Drivers who choose to look down at their phones, GPS navigation systems, at the radio, or other individuals inside their vehicles instead of the roadway place themselves and everyone whom they come across on the road at severe risk of sustaining debilitating or even deadly injuries. Driver negligence takes more lives than gun violence every year in the United States. Over 400,000 reported auto accidents happen due to the actions of negligent drivers in the US, which is equal to the entire state of California’s national accident rate. 

When you or someone you love has been seriously hurt in a car accident, you deserve to know how it happened, and whether or not it was your fault. If you believe your crash was caused by the actions of a negligent driver, you should be able to recover financial compensation for the damages and losses you incurred in relation to your crash.
