Car Accidents in Mississippi
Official statistics from around Mississippi show that motor vehicle accidents that took place across the state in 2016 were accountable for the fatalities of at least 690 people. Many negligent drivers display show little to no regard for the safety of other drivers on the roads, and such reckless actions as speeding, DUI, and distracted driving continue to lead to serious car accidents in Mississippi. These sudden collisions tend to be devastating on an all-too-common basis, and most abrupt collisions leave victims with not only pain and suffering but the immense burden of extremely high medical bills as well.
In many cases, victims are forced to afford the costs of hospitalization, continued medical care, and even services such as physical therapy for years following an accident. When these costs are a result of the careless actions taken by other drivers, victims must understand that they deserve justice. There is no excuse for inattentive behavior behind the wheel and absolutely no reason why victims should pay for the actions of other people.
