Fatal Car Accidents in Mississippi
Every year, thousands of people lose their lives in motor vehicle accidents across the United States. When people lose their lives unexpectedly in auto collisions, it can have a devastating impact on surviving family members.
Head-on collisions have a death rate of up to 58 percent, and despite accounting for only 2% of all reported car accidents, they account for more than 10% of all fatalities on the road each year. The majority of head-on collisions are caused by distracted or inattentive drivers who stray into opposing lanes of traffic.
Families are not only forced to deal with the overwhelming emotional consequences of these accidents, but they often face substantial financial burdens for medical treatment, funeral services, and more. When victims lose their lives in these horrific collisions, it is crucial that their families contact a wrongful death attorney in Jackson to protect their legal rights.
