Mississippi Car Accidents
The number of serious injuries and fatalities resulting from car crashes in Mississippi has increased in the past few years. A total of 685 individuals were killed in car crashes in 2017, which was the year with the most overall deaths during that time period. In 2014, 607 people were killed in crashes, showing an upward trend in fatal collisions throughout the Magnolia state.
We understand that the process of filing a wrongful death claim may leave you feeling entirely stressed and anxious. We are also aware of the fact that it is impossible to place a price on the pain you are feeling. We know what you’re dealing with, which is why we are here to help you recover.
Unfortunately, in these specific situations, the only relief offered by the law is financial compensation awarded to you through the insurance company of the individual or business responsible for the passing of your family member. In cases where gross negligence is demonstrated, the individual may be ordered to pay out-of-pocket fees to help you recover. This is done to make up for the pain and grief you may be experiencing as a result of the passing of your loved one. We want to help you pursue a wrongful death claim to recover from an untimely loss.
Although there will never be a sum of money that will fully make up for the loss of a loved one, we at Mama Justice are also aware of how quickly costs may increase following a wrongful death. After a fatal crash, we do not want you or your family to be stuck with the bill. We will fight to ensure that the at-fault party is held accountable.
