Deadly Intersection Crashes in Mississippi
While traveling through an intersection, the likelihood of getting involved in a car accident increases. The latest data even suggests that traffic intersections have become much more dangerous through the years. Even traffic signals can only do so much to prevent a deadly collision. According to national statistics, red-light runners are responsible for hundreds of deaths across the country each year.
When a loved one dies as a result of another party's negligence, wrongful death lawsuits are filed with the goal of compensating the surviving family members. The fact that the victim died does not absolve the perpetrator of blame. Instead, the defendant is responsible for compensating the victim's family in the event of a fatal accident. You'll need the assistance of a Tupelo personal injury attorney who has represented wrongful death victims before.
