Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Mississippi
After losing a loved one, families are often faced with enormous financial and emotional hurdles; a fact that our civil justice system does not take for granted. That is why the families of those killed due to wrongful conduct or negligence are entitled to take legal action and file a wrongful death claim.
Wrongful death claims are one of the most significant legal actions in the justice system. They allow families to hold at-fault individuals responsible for causing an unnecessary loss. Wrongful death claims give families a sense of justice and send a message that such negligence or conduct will not be tolerated. They also make it possible for families to receive compensation for their damages.

When families have to deal with the emotional trauma of losing a loved one, their distress is usually compounded by the financial hardships created by things like funeral expenses, burial costs, and lost wages and benefits.
As often as you might do your part to ensure the safety of others and uphold your duty of care, there are no certainties that other people will show you or your family the same courtesy. People who shun the duty of care they owe to others are the primary cause of accidental injuries and deaths throughout the state.
When someone dies from the negligence, maliciousness, or recklessness of another person, their family may be entitled to financial compensation.
