Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Mississippi
It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience to get on a motorcycle for the first time. This is a popular pastime among Mississippi residents. Motorcycle riders are particularly vulnerable to catastrophic injury in the event of an accident. The number of fatal motorcycle accidents continues to rise year after year, despite a national decline in traffic fatalities. Almost 80% of motorcycle accidents result in serious injury or death to the rider.
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 Vicksburg personal injury attorney who has experience with wrongful death cases.
