Bicycle Accidents in Mississippi
Bicycle accidents are some of the most life-altering accidents that occur on Mississippi roads every year. In 2016 alone, it was reported that approximately 840 bicyclists lose their lives throughout the entirety of the U.S. This is mostly due to the fact that bicyclists have no protection from harm in the event of an accident. In the blink of an eye, life could be taken because a driver was not paying close attention to the roads around them. If you have lost someone you love in a bicycle accident, it is important that you speak with a dedicated accident attorney.
