Fatal Head-On Crashes in Mississippi
There is a significant risk of death in the event of a head-on collision. These are just a few of the most deadly car accidents that can occur while driving. Despite accounting for only 2% of all reported car accidents, head-on collisions have a death rate of up to 58% 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.
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 Columbus personal injury lawyer who has handled wrongful death cases.
