Mississippi  Pedestrian Collisions

Pedestrian accidents are some of the most devastating types of traffic accidents that can happen. This is because pedestrians travel with no protection from the force of heavy, fast vehicles in the event of a collision. Many people lose their lives each year due to these life-changing events. In 2018 alone, about 13% of fatalities related to traffic collisions in Mississippi involved pedestrians.

Truthfully, these wrecks can generally be prevented but continue to take place due to the reckless actions of drivers on our roads. It is never easy for a family to face prematurely losing a loved one in a fatal pedestrian accident. If you have suffered the loss of someone you love in a situation of this nature, you should consider working with a skilled lawyer who can help you file a claim for financial compensation.
