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.
When a loved one dies as a result of another party's negligence, wrongful death lawsuits are filed with the goal of compensating the surviving family members. The fact that the victim died does not absolve the perpetrator of blame. Instead, the defendant is responsible for compensating the victim's family in the event of a fatal accident. You'll need the assistance of an Ocean Springs personal injury attorney who has worked with wrongful death victims.
