Recent Mississippi auto accident statistics
Motor vehicle accidents are by far the leading cause of injury-related death in the state, and Mississippi has one of the highest per capita motor vehicle fatality rates in the country. Although the number of motor vehicle accident fatalities has been decreasing over the last few years, due in large part to Mississippi passing a seatbelt law in 2006, there are still hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries sustained in Mississippi car accidents every year. There are many causes that lead to auto accidents, including:
- Speeding/aggressive driving
- Missing or disobeying traffic signs and signals
- Failing to signal before turns
- Failing to adjust driving for road conditions or reduced visibility
- Impaired driving (DUI/DWI)
- Distracted while driving
- Using a cellphone to talk or text
- Eating or drinking
- Talking to passengers
- Grooming/applying makeup
- Using a radio/stereo/navigation system
Accidents usually occur because of the negligence of one or more drivers. If you are injured by the negligence of another driver, the experienced representation of attorney Judy Guice can help you get the settlement you deserve.
