Mississippi Car Wrecks

Car accidents happen in Mississippi and across the United States all the time. Each year, more than 6 million auto collisions occur in the US. Of these wrecks, around 3 million people are hurt and over 40,000 are injured. In Mississippi specifically, tens of thousands of people suffer injuries in auto accidents each year, while hundreds end up losing their lives. Unfortunately, most of these accidents are preventable and caused by the actions of negligent drivers. Negligent driving has become a serious public health crisis in the United States, especially in the past decade. More than 94% of reported auto collisions in the US each year are caused by the actions of negligent drivers.
