Injury Accidents in Mississippi
Automobile collisions are the number one factor in Mississippi’s high rate of severe injuries and accidental fatalities. Although you may be very careful when you get behind the wheel, and meticulously obey every rule of the road, not every other driver is going to share in that same sense of duty.
Mississippi’s rate of fatal collisions is the highest in the country. Nearly 30% of the state’s crash-related deaths are caused by intoxicated drivers, and over 15% stem from cars traveling at an excessive speed.
