Deadly Pedestrian Accidents in Mississippi
Every year in the United States, tens of thousands of people are killed while walking. This shows how dangerous the streets can be for pedestrians. Despite having the least amount of pedestrian traffic, Mississippi has one of the highest rates of pedestrian fatalities in the country. Nearly 5,977 pedestrians were killed in 2017 across the country. On average, a pedestrian is killed on the roads every 88 minutes.
Wrongful death lawsuits are filed when a loved one dies as a result of another party's negligence, with the goal of compensating the surviving family members. The victim's death does not absolve the perpetrator of responsibility. Instead, in the event of a fatal accident, the defendant is responsible for compensating the victim's family. You'll need the help of a Biloxi personal injury lawyer who has handled wrongful death cases before.
