Fatal Auto Accidents in Mississippi
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Mississippi has one of the highest rates of fatal car accidents in the country. As a result, state residents are more likely to be involved in a car accident and sustain serious injuries as a result. Around 22% of Mississippi drivers do not wear seat belts, and statistics show that accident severity is on the rise. Automobile accidents are now the state’s leading cause of serious injury and death.
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, the defendant must compensate the deceased’s family members following a fatal car accident. Only a Jackson personal injury attorney who has worked with wrongful death victims can help you.
