Mississippi Auto Accidents
In the United States, car accidents are a top cause of severe injuries and death. Over 40,000 people lost their lives in 2021 due to auto collisions in the United States. This is a 10% rise from the previous year and the largest yearly increase in fatalities recorded, according to the National Highway Traffic Association. The truth of just how dangerous vehicles can be often gets ignored due to how commonplace the use of cars and other vehicles is in American society.
Every year, tens of thousands of Mississippi residents are hurt in car accidents. Over 1,000 individuals reportedly lose their lives in auto accidents each year in the Magnolia State. Though auto accidents are totally unpredictable, these incidents occur constantly. Throughout the United States, approximately 13 auto collisions are reported per minute. About 27% of all car wrecks cause injuries, which is equal to about three injury accidents every minute.
Estimates by car insurance companies state that the odds of you becoming involved in an auto accident during a trip traveling about 1,000 miles are approximately 1 in 366. When you or someone you love is injured in a car crash, it is important to be able to figure out how the collision happened.
