Deadly Rollover Accidents in Mississippi
Fatal rollovers are an unfortunate reality, and these types of accidents are much more likely to result in deadly injuries. Despite only making up an estimated 2.2% of reported collisions in 2010, rollovers were involved in nearly 35% of fatal passenger-vehicle crashes that year. When a vehicle overturns, its occupants are at increased risk of suffering from fatal injuries. An estimated 7,600 people were killed in rollover collisions across the United States in 2010.
Mississippi wrongful death lawsuits are intended to compensate surviving family members when the negligent actions of another party cause the death of a loved one. Just because the victim died, that does not mean that the at-fault party should be off the hook. The defendant must instead pay compensation to the family members of the deceased after a deadly Mississippi car crash. This can only be accomplished by partnering with a law firm with years of experience helping victims pursue wrongful death claims.
