Deadly Trucking Accidents in Mississippi
Many Mississippi drivers are wary of driving behind big trucks because they know how much damage these vehicles can cause in the event of a crash. Commercial vehicles transport the majority of cargo in the United States, and when an accident occurs, passengers in smaller cars are at greater risk due to the size discrepancy. In the United States, almost 500,000 semi-truck collisions are reported annually, resulting in thousands of fatalities.
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 a qualified team of Tupelo truck accident attorneys on your side is beneficial.
