Mississippi Fatal Head-On Collisions
In the event of a head-on accident, there is a high risk of fatal injury. With fatality rates as high as 58%, these are some of the deadliest traffic crashes. Head-on collisions account for more than 10% of all road fatalities each year, accounting for only 2% of all reported car accidents. The majority of head-on collisions are caused by distracted or inattentive drivers who swerve into opposing traffic lanes without conveying their intentions. When a driver merges into opposing traffic, he or she runs the risk of colliding with another car.
The capacity to bring a wrongful death claim in the United States is restricted by a number of restrictions, including tight statutes of limitations and eligibility requirements.
