Mississippi Car Accidents
Fatal accidents in the state of Mississippi take the lives of hundreds of people annually. There are many accidents that are entirely preventable. We see innocent people continue to lose their lives in traffic crashes caused by negligence.
Speeding is a common factor in fatal crashes that we see here in the state of Mississippi. When drivers are traveling too fast for road conditions or during inclement weather conditions, they may not be able to control their vehicle in order to avoid being involved in a collision. This is particularly true in congested areas, around current roadways, and while traveling on slick and icy roads.
Drivers who are distracted are another leading factor in crashes that take place across our state. When drivers are texting on their phones, talking to passengers, or even changing the radio stations, they are likely to take their attention off the road ahead. As a result, they may crash into other vehicles or objects nearby.
No matter the cause of the fatal accident, the consequences are often devastating for families. If you have lost a loved one as a result of a fatal car crash, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim against the responsible party.
