Deadly Head-On Crashes in Mississippi

, Braxton, MS - Rita Ross Dies in Head-On Collision on MS-149, Germany Law Firm PLLCIn the event of a head-on collision, there is a significant risk of death. Despite accounting for just 2% of all documented automotive accidents, head-on collisions have a mortality rate of up to 58 percent and account for more than 10% of all annual road fatalities. The majority of head-on collisions are caused by distracted or inattentive drivers who stray into opposing lanes of traffic.

When a loved one dies as a result of another party's negligence, wrongful death claims are filed in order to compensate the surviving family members. The fact that the victim died does not absolve the criminal of blame. Instead, in the event of a fatal accident, the perpetrator is responsible for compensating the victim's family members. You'll need the assistance of a personal injury attorney who has experience in wrongful death claims.

When a loved one is murdered in an accident that should never have happened, you should immediately contact a Braxton wrongful death lawyer to discuss your options for compensation, and you should make sure that your attorney has the required experience. The Germany Law Firm PLLC recognizes that no amount of money can ever compensate for the loss of a loved one, but we also recognize how quickly expenses may mount after a wrongful death.
