Puckett is a town in Rankin County, Mississippi, United States. The population was 354 at the 2000 census. It is part of the Jackson Metropolitan Statistical Area. Founded by the Puckett family from nearby Tishamingo, Mississippi in 1898. The town's actual early founding is tied to Joshua R. Burnham (born 1845). He started the first post office there and an effort was made to name the town Burnham. The government denied the request, some attribute to because he fought in the Civil War. As alternate names were being debated, a black man by the name of Puckett was walking down the road at the time. They submitted Puckett, and it was accepted. From a search of existing records, there is/never was a nearby town named Tishamingo.

What is rollover accident litigation?

A rollover is a type of vehicle accident, where a vehicle turns over on its side or roof. Such accidents have a tendency to badly injure the occupants of the vehicle, car, bus or truck involved and those around the vehicle. While many auto accidents occur because of human error, many also can be caused or worsened by defective products or inadequate safety mechanisms. Among these problems are vehicles that are prone to rollovers, especially increasingly popular sport utility vehicles, or SUVs. A number of vehicles have also been found to have roofs that cannot withstand rollover accidents, with drivers and passengers injured and killed. People who are injured in rollover accidents may be compensated for their injury, lost income, and pain and suffering.
