What Damages are Available in Mississippi Wrongful Death Cases?
While nothing can undo the damage that has been done to your family, filing a wrongful death lawsuit may bring you a sense of closure and justice, as well as provide you with financial resources to pay for unexpected expenses arising from the accident.
Our firm may be able to help you get compensation for the following damages:
- Medical bills incurred prior to the death
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Pain & suffering endured by the surviving family
- Any property damage costs
- Lost wages and benefits
- Loss of companionship and support
Damages are not automatically awarded, which is why it is important for families to take immediate action and contact a lawyer as soon as possible. Because there is a statute of limitations for wrongful death lawsuits in Mississippi, make sure to request a case review with a Meridian wrongful death attorney at our firm without delay. If you wait too long, you may risk losing your right to sue permanently.
