Deadly Auto Accidents in Mississippi
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Mississippi has one of the highest rates of fatal car accidents in the country. As a result, state residents are more likely to be involved in a car accident and sustain serious injuries as a result. Around 22% of Mississippi drivers do not wear seat belts, according to statistics, and traffic collisions are becoming more serious. Automobile accidents are now the state's leading cause of serious injury and death.
Wrongful death lawsuits are intended to compensate surviving family members when the negligent actions of another party cause the death of a loved one. Just because the victim died, that does not mean that the at-fault party should be off the hook. The defendant must instead pay compensation to the family members of the deceased after a deadly car crash. This can only be accomplished by partnering with a law firm with years of experience helping victims pursue wrongful death claims.
