While seatbelts aren’t always the most comfortable, they significantly reduce the risk of serious injury and death in the event of an accident. It’s important to recognize that vehicle crashes are one of the leading causes of death in the first three decades of life in the United States. If a person decides to forgo their seatbelt and ends up in an accident, the consequences can be devastating.

Even though most drivers and passengers in the U.S. wear a seatbelt while in a moving vehicle, there are still millions who do not. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), only 83 percent of Mississippi drivers wear a seatbelt. That is three percent lower than the national average.

Wrongful Death Statutes of Limitations in Mississippi

Losing a loved one, especially when the death was caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongful act, is always incredibly challenging. While legal matters are often the last thing on families’ minds during this time, it’s important to understand that families who have experienced such a loss may have the right to file a wrongful death claim under Mississippi Law.

While no amount of compensation can bring a loved one back, it can help to ease burdens associated with funeral costs, medical expenses, and lost wages. Compensation may also offer peace of mind to the family in the event the negligent or guilty party can be held accountable for their actions or inactions.

While some wrongful deaths are intentional, others are unintentional. Some of the most common unintentional wrongful deaths are related to car accidents, medical malpractice, and workplace accidents.

When is a Mechanic at Fault for a Malfunctioning Car?

As a responsible car owner, you’ve probably taken your car into the shop for regular maintenance, oil changes, and tire rotations; however, there may come a time when your car needs to be repaired. Whether you need new brakes or an ignition coil replacement, you’ll need to find a mechanic you’re comfortable with.

Once you do, you’ll enter into a contract with the mechanic, who will agree to fix your car for a predetermined price. Days later you’ll pick up your car, excited to have it back; however, what if your drive home doesn’t go as planned? What if the brakes you just have replaced cease to work and you end up rear-ending someone at a stoplight? What now?

The answer to that question is found back at the shop you just left. In the event you can prove a mechanic caused you to suffer a loss, you may be able to hold them negligent for your malfunctioning car.
