Mississippi residents who lose a loved one in an automobile accident often find themselves experiencing financial difficulties on top of the loss that they are mourning. These families might be able to recover financially from their loss if the actions of the other driver involved in the crash were fully or partially responsible for the death of their family member. A wrongful death claim can provide resources to help families pay for medical and funeral expenses as well as provide valuable financial support as they mourn their loss, heal, and learn how to move forward in the absence of their beloved family member.
Wrongful death claims are a type of civil action. Family members can bring wrongful death claims against the person, people, or business entity that caused their loved one’s death by their negligent actions or failure to act. The families who pursue wrongful death claims must be able to prove that if the defendant or defendants had not acted negligently, their family member would not have died. Depending upon the roles that your deceased loved one played in your family may be able to recover include lost wages, medical expenses, funeral expenses, and loss of support or companionship.
