Mississippi Car Wrecks

Vicksburg, MS - Four Killed in Head-on Crash on US 61 near Warren CountyAuto accidents happen in Mississippi constantly. The state sees over 300 vehicle collisions happen per day. Throughout the country, there are millions of vehicle collisions that happen every year that injure and take the lives of millions of people. Car crashes have become a leading cause of serious injuries and death in the United States in the past decade. This may be partially due to the advent of smartphones and other handheld technology. The main leading cause of car crashes is currently driver negligence. In the United States, driver distraction is the most commonly seen type of driver negligence that leads to accidents and injuries. 

In one recent year, over 400,000 auto collisions were reported as a result of driver distraction. That same year, more than 3,000 people lost their lives in vehicle collisions caused by distracted drivers. Drivers who choose to look at their phones, talk to other people in the car, eat, or do anything else other than keeping their eyes on the roadway, put themselves and everyone else they come into contact with while behind the wheel at serious risk for severe injuries or even death. 

If you or someone you love has recently been injured in a car crash caused by driver negligence, you may greatly benefit from the help of a personal injury lawyer. An attorney can help you file a personal injury claim for financial compensation so you can get the money you need to pay for medical care costs, repairs to your vehicle, wage loss, and more. Sadly, insurance companies will most likely try to take advantage of you during this trying time in your life. Insurance adjusters are trained to attempt to contact you in the days and weeks directly following your wreck, when you may be at your weakest and in need of money for bills. 

Don’t let this happen to you. A car crash lawyer can help you get the maximum financial compensation available for your injuries and losses by negotiating a full and fair settlement with the insurance company that won’t just cover a small portion of the damages you face. A lawyer will get you enough compensation to pay for the majority of, or all of the losses and damages that resulted from your accident.
