Mississippi law states that even though the injured party died, their estate still has a legal claim against the respondent. The death of the victim does not imply that the negligent driver is somehow exempt from their duty to pay financial compensation to the family or estate of the deceased.

This same statute comes into play if the negligent driver was killed during the accident. Under these circumstances, the claim for damages would instead be brought against the deceased’s estate. 

This law is applied in cases where either the injured victim or the at-fault driver, or both, die as a result of the accident. The victim’s claim for financial compensation is valid regardless of who died.

In order to recover compensation after a crash, you have to determine that the negligence of another party directly contributed to your injuries. This can be difficult on your own, and many crash victims find themselves overwhelmed by the personal injury process. An experienced Mississippi personal injury lawyer can help you construct a strong case, make sure your legal rights are secured, and ensure that the liable party is held accountable for their role in the accident.
