Pedestrian Accidents in Mississippi
Pedestrians are some of the most at-risk parties on our roads who are prone to some of the most extensive harm in the event of accidents. In 2011 alone, it was reported that approximately 47 people were killed in pedestrian accidents due to the negligence of others. Because pedestrians have no protection against vehicles, they are more likely to sustain catastrophic injuries or even lose their lives in accidents.
