Oxford, MS (May 30, 2022) - On Sunday morning, May 29, a car crash in Oxford wounded at least one person. The accident reportedly took place on University Avenue at around 10 a.m.
Many lanes were stopped at the scene as a consequence of the event, and emergency workers treated the wounded. The count of accident victims and the severity of their injuries have yet to be determined, but injuries were confirmed at the scene. At this time, no more information has been made available.
The cause of the crash is presently being investigated by local authorities.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Mississippi Reckless Driving Accidents
The state of Mississippi is notorious for its risky and irresponsible driving. More than seventy-five percent of senior drivers confess to talking on their phones while driving. According to the Mississippi Department of Health, more than a third of people confess to reading, composing, or sending texts while driving. More than 21% of 15- to 19-year-old drivers were distracted by a smartphone only minutes before a fatal car collision.
If you or a dear one was injured in a car accident caused by a careless driver, you may be entitled to compensation. Because Mississippi's court system is based on comparative blame, pursuing a claim for damages on your own after a vehicle accident may be difficult. Wherever possible, insurance companies endeavor to deny claims or reduce compensation. Even if you feel the other person is clearly at fault, the insurance company will almost certainly attempt to pin the blame on you to save money.
It is vital to safeguard your rights if you or a close relative has been gravely hurt in a car accident or as a consequence of another driver's carelessness.

We believe that by providing the greatest quality legal assistance to our consumers, they will be able to recoup their losses more quickly.
