Pedestrian Accidents in Mississippi
Pedestrian accidents are known for being some of the most severe accidents on our roads throughout the state of Mississippi. In 2020, it was reported that Mississippi actually ranked 8th highest in the entire U.S. when it came to states with the most pedestrian fatalities. Because pedestrians have no protection from harm in the event of an accident, they are likely to become seriously injured or even killed in an accident in the blink of an eye. Drivers are supposed to pay close attention to the roads around them so that pedestrian accidents can be prevented. However, this does not always occur. If you have lost someone you love in a pedestrian accident, you should speak with an attorney that you can trust.
The loss of a loved one in a pedestrian accident can affect your life in a variety of ways. You and your family may wonder what options you have during these difficult times. As you are grieving the loss of a loved one, you should never have to worry about how you will pay the bills that pile up against you.
