Wrongful Death

Representing Families in Cases of Wrongful Death

There is nothing is worse than to lose a family member at the hands of someone else. At the law firm of Bailey & Womble in Batesville, our lawyers represent families who have lost loved ones in fatal car accidents, truck accidents, medical malpractice and from other forms of negligence in northern Mississippi.

When a loved one dies through the careless or reckless actions of another, a wrongful death lawsuit is usually the last thing on the minds of the surviving family members. They are suffering from shock and grief, and no amount of money can bring the family member back. But one day the survivors will sit around the kitchen table and realize that the bills keep mounting up and they have lost the support of a family member.

Wrongful Death Lawsuit

In Mississippi, a wrongful death lawsuit allows you to recover financial compensation for the loss of a parent, child or spouse. Family members can see compensation for:

  • The pain and suffering of the family member prior to death
  • Economic losses related to the death, including future lost wages
  • The loss of love and affection of the family member

A recovery for economic losses can be quite substantial. A person's salary increases over time, and our lawyers use economists and other experts to determine how much income your family member could have earned in his or her lifetime if the wrongful death had not occurred.

Our lawyers have a track record of obtaining substantial settlements and verdicts for our clients.
