Mississippi Pedestrian Accidents
Mississippi is known for being one of the worst states in the U.S. when it comes to pedestrian accidents. Over the years, pedestrian fatalities and injuries have increased on our roads. In 2011, it was reported that 47 people were killed in fatal pedestrian accidents throughout Mississippi. By 2019, it was reported that 65 people were killed in these accidents. Being injured in a pedestrian accident can turn your life upside-down within seconds. If you have sustained injuries in one of these accidents, you should have the skilled help of an attorney on your side who can assist you.
Pedestrians are the most at-risk parties on our roads, which means that they are prone to serious injuries. If a driver acted in a negligent way and it led to your accident, they should be held fully responsible for their actions. This is especially true, knowing that pedestrian accidents lead to some of the most severe injuries. These include some of the following:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Organ damage

These injuries tend to land victims in the hospital for days, weeks, or even months at a time. On top of this, they could cause you to miss out on time at work.
