Deadly Head-On Crashes in Mississippi
There is a considerable chance of suffering fatal injuries in the event of a head-on accident. These types of crashes have a fatality rate of up to 58 percent and account for more than 10 percent of all yearly road deaths. This is significant when you consider that head-on crashes only account for 2 percent of all reported automobile accidents nationwide. Distracted or inattentive drivers who wander into opposing lanes of traffic cause the majority of head-on incidents.
A family member’s unexpected death is a dreadful tragedy. It’s much worse when it’s due to someone else’s negligence.

You may be able to collect funeral and burial costs by filing a wrongful death case against the individual who caused your loved one’s death.
