Dirt Bike Accidents in Pennsylvania
Dirt bike accidents and motorcycle collisions are incredibly similar and lead to the same types of injuries including road rash, head injuries, broken bones, organ damage, burns, and more. Approximately 2.7% of accidents on Pennsylvania roads involve a motorcycle, most of which lead to catastrophic results. Motorcyclists are at a high risk of serious injuries due to the fact that they have few protections and are prone to horrific harm in the event of an accident. If you or someone you love has been injured in one of these accidents, it is important that you have options moving forward.
