Pedestrian Accidents in Mississippi
Pedestrian accidents are known for being some of the most horrific accidents on Mississippi roads. This is due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection from harm on our roads, which means that they are more likely to lose their lives in the event of an accident. In 2011, statistics showed that approximately 47 people lose their lives in pedestrian accidents throughout the state of Mississippi. If you have suffered the loss of a loved one to one of these accidents, it is important that you have the help of an accident attorney moving forward.
