Wrongful death claims may be filed following recent crash

Three people lost their lives and several others suffered injuries in a recent crash in Mississippi. This collision occurred in Pearl County on Nov. 22. The family members of the deceased may be entitled to pursue wrongful death claims in order to seek compensation for their losses, and the injured victims may also seek relief through legal means.

According to reports, at approximately 10:30 a.m., the driver of a van traveling in the northbound lanes of Interstate 59 crossed the grassy median into the southbound lanes and struck another car. Three other vehicles were unable to avoid the wreckage and also crashed. Five people suffered injuries in the collision -- their current conditions are unknown. As previously stated, three people died at the scene.

Authorities are still in the process of investigating this incident. It is unclear if any charges are expected in this case, as it is also unclear if the driver responsible survived the incident. No other details about this event have been released to the public.

Regardless of whether the driver responsible survived, the victims and the loved ones of the deceased may pursue compensation for their losses. This they can do by filing personal injury, wrongful death and any other applicable legal claims available in their individual cases in a Mississippi civil court against the driver, or his or her estate. Legal counsel can assist those looking to seek relief by filing the appropriate claims, and negotiating a settlement or litigating the matter. If driver negligence is established, fair and full compensation may be achieved.
