Deadly House Fires in Mississippi
Nearly 67% of civilian fatalities each year involve one and two-family homes. Statistics show that house fire fatalities are on the rise across the country, increasing by more than 1% from 2017 to 2018. On average, fire departments in the United States respond to nearly 354,400 home structure fires per year. There are an estimated 2,620 civilians killed annually in residential structure fires, and more than 11,000 civilians are injured in house fires each year.
Mississippi 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 Mississippi house fire. This can only be accomplished by partnering with a law firm with years of experience helping victims pursue wrongful death claims.
Bringing a lawsuit is probably the last thing on your mind after losing a family member, but you do not have to pursue a claim on your own.
