Car Accidents Archives

Losing the ability to walk after a car accident

Motor vehicle collisions can be traumatic for a host of reasons. However, for some people the consequences of a crash can be especially disruptive in their lives. For example, those who lose the ability to walk as a result of a motor vehicle collision may experience a wide variety of hardships in their personal and professional lives. Hobbies that one has enjoyed for decades may need to be dropped due to immobility, and someone may no longer be able to continue working in a certain field. These are just some of the things to worry about when it comes to auto accident injuries.

When traffic collisions involve multiple vehicles

Every auto accident is unique, but some can be particularly devastating. For example, a wreck which involves a vehicle that was traveling at a high rate of speed or a crash which involves multiple vehicles could be particularly disastrous. During the summer months, multi-vehicle accidents can occur for various reasons, and there are certain occasions when these collisions may be especially likely (such as the Fourth of July and during popular festivals which attract many people).

Summer road trips and auto accidents

At any time of the year, drivers face many different risks while they behind the wheel. However, the likelihood of an accident may be especially high during certain occasions. For example, someone who goes on a road trip to a different part of the state they live in (or drives to another part of the country) may be particularly likely to find themselves in an auto accident. Moreover, in the event that a motor vehicle collision occurs, they may have an especially hard time dealing with the aftermath of the wreck while they are out of town. If you are planning a road trip this summer, it is very important to be aware of the hazards that you may run into and take steps to prevent an accident.

What impact does speeding have on driver safety?

Being a good driver entails being courteous to others and always following traffic laws. One law that is often ignored is the speed limit, which many drivers disregard as they travel the roads and highways of Mississippi. While breaking the speed limit might not seem like a big deal, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration explains why it's so dangerous. 

How can I be a safer driver this summer?

If you’re like most other motorists in Mississippi, you’re probably thinking about taking a road trip this summer. If so, you want to ensure that you’re responsible when on the road, which preserves the safety of yourself and others. Nationwide explains what you can do to be a safer driver.

What types of burns can you sustain in a car accident?

As a Mississippi driver, no one need tell you that car accidents occur far too frequently. If you find yourself the victim of a fiery car crash, you could not only sustain catastrophic injuries, but you could also have lasting scars once the burns themselves finally heal.

What should I do if involved in a hit and run?

If you’re the victim of a hit and run in Mississippi, the steps you take following the accident are crucial. Your actions may increase the chance that the driver is apprehended, while also ensuring that any damage to your vehicle or bodily injury is properly compensated. To help drivers make the right decision, State Farm offers the following advice.

Can you share liability in your Mississippi car accident case?

It is not uncommon for two parties of a Mississippi car accident to be at fault for the incident. For instance, you may be driving along with your music blaring and going slightly over the speed limit. There is traffic stopped ahead of you and a vehicle tailing behind you. Suddenly, you see an ambulance approaching. You do not hear it because you have your volume revved all the way up. You slam on your breaks to get over and to avoid hitting the vehicle that is now directly in front of you. The vehicle behind you rams into you. The other driver may assume most of the fault, but had you not been speeding, and had your music been at a safe volume, you could have prevented the whole incident from occurring in the first place.

Can defensive driving prevent accidents?

As a motorist in Mississippi, it’s up to you to preserve the safety of yourself, your passengers, and other drivers. Employing defensive driving behaviors are crucial in this case. While you can’t always avoid an accident, especially when others drive carelessly, you can greatly mitigate the chance of a serious collision. Esurance offers the following tips on defensive driving habits.
