Fatal Motorcycle Crashes in Mississippi
Getting on a motorbike for the first time provides the rider with an experience that they will remember for the rest of their lives. In Mississippi, this is a widely popular pastime. Motorcycle riders are more vulnerable to catastrophic injury in the event of an accident. Despite a nationwide decrease in traffic fatalities, the number of fatal motorcycle accidents continues to rise year after year. Almost 80% of motorcycle accidents result in serious injury or death to the rider.
Insurance companies seek to settle motorcycle injury claims as soon as they can and for the least amount of money possible. Insurance adjusters feel that blaming riders for their accidents is a simple method to avoid paying their claims. Insurance firms are well aware that jurors frequently mistakenly conclude that motorcyclists are risky. Too often, the jury will make an unfavorable verdict for the victim, even though the rider had nothing to do with the injuries.
