Mississippi Car Accidents
Every time you hit the road, there is a chance of being involved in a serious collision. Mississippi drivers have a reputation for engaging in reckless behavior on the road. Since 1997, the state has had the highest vehicle fatality rate in the nation for all but three years. Drunk driving is a serious issue in the state and is involved in nearly 30% of traffic fatalities in Mississippi each year. It is notable that the state is the only one in the country that allows drivers to drink and drive as long as they are below the legal BAC limit.
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.
