Deadly Motorcycle Crashes in Mississippi
Motorcyclists are at increased risk of suffering life-threatening injuries in the event of an accident. According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly 80% of motorcycle accidents result in death or injury, and riders are nearly 27 times more likely to be killed in the event of a collision. Data from the NHTSA also found that Mississippi is the most dangerous state for motorcyclists, with the highest motorcycle fatality rate in the nation.
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 motorcycle crash. This can only be accomplished by partnering with a law firm with years of experience helping victims pursue wrongful death claims.
Bringing a lawsuit is probably the last thing on your mind after losing a family member, but you do not have to pursue a claim on your own.
