Mississippi Motorcycle Accidents
In the past decade or so, Mississippi has become one of the most dangerous places for motorcycle travel. Per Mississippi residents, there are more motorcycle accidents than in any other place in the United States.
Due to the fact that motorcyclists travel completely unprotected against the force of other larger, fast-moving vehicles, they are more likely to suffer catastrophic injuries in the case of an accident. In 2016, approximately 700 individuals were killed in motorcycle collisions in the state of Mississippi. Losing someone you love in a car wreck can negatively affect your life in many ways.
