This is due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection from harm in the event of an accident with a large vehicle. Every year, hundreds of individuals lose their lives in pedestrian accidents within the state of Mississippi.

However, drivers still make mistakes on our roads every year that cause many pedestrians to lose their lives. If you have suffered from these enormous losses, you and your family should have the dedicated help of an attorney on your side.
