Car Accidents in Mississippi
According to local officials, authorities throughout the state of Mississippi found that about 100 people are hurt in Mississippi car accidents each week. In fact, during the year 2017, a total of about 685 people lost their lives in car wrecks all throughout the state, making Mississippi one of the most dangerous places in the country to operate a motor vehicle. These numbers have given the state a traffic accident fatality rate of 22.9 deaths per 100,000 residents.
The actions of reckless drivers lead to numerous deaths all around the state of Mississippi, and as a victim or bereaved family member, there is almost nothing more important than obtaining qualified representation to fight for the fairness you rightfully merit. The main reason that representation becomes so significant during such a time is at least partially because of the fact that most victims are left with extremely high costs after a sudden accident.
These expenses are from various factors such as the cost of hospitalization, continued medical care, and other high fees that stack up on top of lost income. For years following an accident, victims commonly experience life-altering changes both physically and emotionally, and the responsible party must be held liable. There is no excuse for behaving carelessly behind the wheel, and an aggressive accident attorney understands your suffering and will go to work fighting for justice on your behalf.
