When a person you love is unexpectedly killed in an incident that could have easily been avoided, the resulting economic, physical, and emotional obligations that arise will undoubtedly be enormous. Sadly, wrongful deaths can stem from numerous kinds of negligence-based accidents. A few of the more common ones seen in Mississippi include: 

  • Automobile collisions
  • Dangerous or defective products
  • Hunting accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Premises liability issues
  • Farming accidents
  • Defective or dangerous medical devices
  • Workplace sickness or injury

Although some wrongful deaths occur instantly, at the very same moment as the accident, some victims have to face weeks, months, or years of continuous medical treatment or depending on life support before their injuries finally win. 

In these scenarios, surviving family members are not only left grieving but also trying to work out exactly how they are going to deal with the outrageous medical expenses incurred by the deceased, along with the added anxiety that comes with the absence of the contributions, monetary and otherwise, that the deceased is no longer providing.
