Car Wrecks in Mississippi
According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, there were 4.8 million accident victims and 38,000 fatal motor vehicle collisions in 2020. The good news is that death rates have been declining over the previous 10 years, mostly as a consequence of improvements in healthcare and vehicle security.
Numerous reasons, including but not limited to exceeding the speed limit, drunk driving, and defective equipment, can result in accidents involving motor vehicles. The most frequent kind of collision we experience in Mississippi is one that was the result of a distracted motorist. For instance, a large percentage of our customers have been in rear-end crashes, which almost always happen as a result of driving too fast and being careless.
