Deadly Rollover Crashes in Mississippi
Rollover accidents can be traumatic events that leave accident victims suffering from serious injuries. In 2010, rollovers were only involved in an estimated 2.1% of reported car crashes nationwide. However, that same year, rollovers were involved in nearly 35% of fatal passenger-vehicle crashes, contributing to over 7,600 fatalities. These accidents are often caused by inclement roadway conditions or the actions of reckless drivers.
When the negligence of another person results in the loss of a loved one, it is natural that surviving family members would want to seek justice. A Mississippi wrongful death lawsuit could give them the financial compensation needed to cover funeral expenses and burial costs, medical expenses, mental suffering, and other damages related to a deadly accident. Mississippi wrongful death claims involve many complicated laws, including strict statutes of limitations and rules regarding who can file, so it helps to have the help of a qualified legal team on your side.
