Pedestrian Accidents in Mississippi
Pedestrians are the most vulnerable people on our roads who are prone to some of the most extensive harm in the event of an accident. This is due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection from harm when involved in an accident with a vehicle. In 2011 alone, it was determined that approximately 47 people lost their lives in pedestrian accidents throughout the state. Losing a loved one in a Mississippi pedestrian accident can be a challenge for a family. Because of this, families are urged to seek the immediate help of an attorney that they can trust.
