Deadly Car Crashes in Mississippi

Oxford, MS - Maggie Keller, Tyrone Jones Killed in Crash on MS-7According 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, and statistics show that accident severity is on the rise. Automobile accidents are now the state’s leading cause of serious injury and death.

When another person’s negligence causes the death of a loved one, it’s natural for surviving family members to seek justice. The process of recovery begins with the filing of a wrongful death claim for just compensation. A wrongful death lawsuit could provide them with the financial compensation they need to cover funeral and burial expenses, medical bills, mental anguish, and other damages resulting from the fatal accident. Wrongful death claims are complicated, with strict statutes of limitations and rules about who can file, so having the assistance of a qualified team of Oxford personal injury lawyers on your side is beneficial.
