Losing a loved one is one of life’s most challenging experiences, and when that loss is due to someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, the pain can be even more profound. In Mississippi, the law recognizes the seriousness of such situations and provides avenues for seeking justice through wrongful death claims. At Wilson Law Firm P.C., we understand the complexities and sensitivities involved in these cases, and we are here to support you every step of the way. 

What Constitutes Wrongful Death? 

According to the Mississippi Code, a wrongful death occurs when the death of a person, including an unborn child, is caused by a real, wrongful, or negligent act or omission. This can include situations where unsafe machinery, premises, or appliances contribute to the death. 

Additionally, if a death is caused by the breach of any warranty, express or implied, of the purity or fitness of any consumable product, such as food, drugs, or beverages, the responsible party can be held liable for damages. 

The law ensures that those who would have been liable if the death had not occurred, and their representatives, are held accountable for the damages, regardless of the instantaneous nature of the death.
