Mississippi Wrongful Death Law

Wrongful death law exists to hold at-fault parties responsible for compensating the surviving family members of a person who died in a preventable accident. A wrongful death lawsuit is essentially a personal injury lawsuit brought on the deceased person’s behalf; in other words, it is a lawsuit that the deceased person would have had the right to file had he or she survived their injuries.


Mississippi law specifies that the following people may file a lawsuit:

  • The personal representative of the decedent’s estate
  • The surviving husband or wife of the decedent
  • The surviving parent or child of the decedent
  • Any surviving siblings of the decedent

A wrongful death lawsuit is a civil case seeking compensation for the deceased person’s family. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, the party who caused the death may also face separate criminal liability which may lead to fines, jail time, and other penalties.
