Fatal Pedestrian Crashes in Mississippi
Thousands of people are killed while walking in the United States each year, demonstrating how dangerous the street can be for pedestrians. Despite having the least amount of pedestrian traffic, Mississippi has one of the highest rates of pedestrian fatalities in the country. In the United States, 5,977 pedestrians were killed in 2017. On average, a pedestrian is killed on the roads every 88 minutes.
When a loved one dies as a result of another party's negligence, wrongful death lawsuits are filed to compensate the surviving family members. The fact that the victim died does not absolve the wrongdoer of responsibility. Instead, following a fatal car accident, the defendant must compensate the deceased's family members. Only a Magnolia personal injury lawyer with years of experience helping victims pursue wrongful death claims can assist you in doing so.
