Dirt Bike Accidents in Mississippi 

Natchez, MS - Children Injured After Dirt Bike Hit by Car on Lasalle StMany children in Mississippi ride dirt bikes, but these vehicles are far from safe. Statistics show that nearly 60% of fatal dirt bike accident victims were not wearing helmets at the time of the accident, and nearly 60% of victims suffer trauma. Those under the age of 16 make up nearly 70% of non-fatal dirt bike accidents. 

Every day, a motorcyclist is injured or killed in Mississippi, and motorcycle fatalities have been on the rise across the country, despite an overall drop in other types of car accidents. Not only are riders more likely to be seriously injured, but most drivers also fail to look out for motorcyclists like they should, resulting in catastrophic motorcycle accidents across the state of Mississippi. In fact, despite what some people may think about, most Mississippi motorcycle accidents are caused by the actions of reckless drivers who are not fulfilling their duty to share the road safely with motorcyclists.
