Fatal Reckless Driving Accidents in Mississippi 

DeSoto, MS - One Killed, Another Injured in Crash on US-78Reckless driving is one of the leading causes of fatal traffic accidents in Mississippi, according to national collision data. Over 30% of the state’s annual traffic deaths were caused by intoxicated drivers. Regardless of how cautious a motorist is, a reckless driver’s actions may catch them off guard and result in a serious collision. 

Despite the fact that fundamental traffic regulations exist to keep us all safe, reckless driving is responsible for more than a third of all road deaths each year. A knowledgeable Mississippi car accident lawyer can advise clients who recently lost a loved one in a catastrophic car wreck. 

When a loved one dies as a result of someone else’s negligence, it’s natural for surviving family members to seek justice, which begins with filing a wrongful death claim for appropriate compensation. A wrongful death lawsuit in Mississippi may be able to give them the financial compensation they require to pay funeral and burial costs, medical expenses, mental pain, and other losses incurred as a consequence of the unfortunate accident.

Because wrongful death cases in Mississippi are difficult to pursue due to strict statutes of limitations and restrictions on who may file, having the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer in Mississippi on your side is beneficial.
