Fatal Car Crashes in Mississippi 

Moss Point, MS - Jonathan Odom Dies in Pileup Crash on MS-63

The number of people killed in vehicle accidents in the United States is on the rise, according to data. When driving, you’re constantly in danger of colliding with another vehicle. In Mississippi, drunk driving is the primary cause of fatal collisions, accounting for about one-third of all traffic deaths each year. Mississippi is known as one of the most dangerous states to drive in due to the large number of people who die on the road on a daily basis. 

It also has the highest rate of traffic deaths in the country, which has been steady for many years. After a deadly car crash, surviving family members of the deceased may be able to pursue a claim for compensation with the help of a wrongful death attorney in Mississippi. 

In Mississippi, wrongful death lawsuits are designed to reimburse surviving family members when a loved one dies as a result of another person’s negligence, such as a reckless driver. The fact that the victim died does not absolve the perpetrator of all culpability for their actions.

After a fatal car accident, the offender is required to compensate the deceased victims’ surviving family members. Working with a Mississippi law firm with years of expertise assisting wrongful death victims is the only way to achieve this.

Although bringing a lawsuit following the death of a loved one is usually the last thing on your mind, you are not required to do so on your own. No amount of money can bring a loved one back to life, and the Germany Law Firm PLLC knows this. Following the death of a loved one, our Jackson personal injury lawyers will fight to get you the recompense you deserve.
