Car Accidents in Mississippi
Car crashes are the leading contributors to death and serious injury for Mississippi residents. The state continually leads the nation in vehicle fatality rates per capita. The leading cause of deadly car accidents in the state is drunk driving and speeding. The fact that nearly 22% of drivers fail to wear a seatbelt is also a contributing factor. Driver distraction is a serious roadway safety concern in Mississippi, accounting for nearly 18% of reported collisions in the state.
Dealing with the aftermath of a serious crash is a long and frustrating process, and many Mississippi car crash victims are unprepared to protect their rights. The financial impact of medical care, repair bills, and lost wages can be extremely disruptive to our lives and leave accident victims in a difficult financial and emotional situation. Unfortunately, when victims depend solely on insurance companies to recover lost compensation, they often feel even more alone and confused, making the situation even worse.
