Fatal Trucking Accidents in Mississippi
Many Mississippi drivers are wary of driving behind large trucks because they are aware of the amount of damage these vehicles can cause in the event of a collision. Commercial vehicles transport the majority of cargo in the United States, and passengers in smaller cars are more vulnerable to an accident due to the serious difference in size. Every year, nearly 500,000 semi-truck collisions are reported in the United States, resulting in thousands of fatalities.
When a loved one dies as a result of someone else's negligence, it's natural for surviving family members to seek justice. The process of recovery begins with the filing of a just compensation wrongful death claim. A wrongful death lawsuit might be able to help them get the money they need to cover funeral and burial costs, medical bills, mental anguish, and other costs related to the fatal accident. Because there are strict statutes of limitations and rules about who can file wrongful death claims, having a qualified team of Starkville personal injury attorneys on your side is advantageous.
