Rollover Crashes in Mississippi
Certain types of crashes are more likely to result in life-threatening and catastrophic injuries. Rollover crashes are commonly involved in serious and even fatal collisions across the country. Only 2.1% of reported crashes in 2010 involved rollover accidents. However, that same year, rollovers were involved in nearly 35% of deadly passenger-car crashes nationwide. There were an estimated 7,600 people killed in rollover crashes in the United States that year.
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.
