Motorcycle Accidents

Wisconsin Motorcycle Accident Attorneys. Emphatic Support for Injured Motorcyclists.

We also know what it takes to obtain compensation when a motorist acts recklessly and causes you serious injuries. Our firm has a reputation for delivering compassionate, experienced, and determined legal representation to motorcycle crash victims.

Protecting Your Rights after a Motorcycle Crash

The public sometimes assumes that a motorcycle crash is the biker’s own fault, but that’s not always the case. Many motorcyclists pride themselves on strictly obeying traffic laws and taking every precaution to avoid an accident. Often, a careless motorist is to blame. Our personal injury law firm can investigate your claim to determine the best approach to obtain the maximum possible compensation.

 

Matters we consider include:

  • Your use of protective gear: Wisconsin does not have a helmet law, so you can choose to ride without one. The state puts the responsibility on bikers to drive responsibly instead of requiring safety gear that lawmakers do not believe should be a legal mandate. However, your use of protective gear – such as a helmet, goggles, faceguard, boots, gloves, and abrasion-resistant jacket and pants – may minimize motorcycle injuries.
  • Types of motorcycle accidents: Single-vehicle incidents are common with motorcycles. For example, a motorcyclist may hit a tree, barrier, or another hard surface. However, just because no other motorist was involved does not mean the accident was the motorcyclist’s fault. Often a crash occurs because of poorly maintained roadways or an obstruction in the biker’s path. More common are accidents involving a motorist who cuts off or runs into a motorcyclist.
  • Types of motorcycle injuries: Motorcyclists are often at greater risk of serious injuries than motorists involved in a car accident. This is because motorcycles do not have the same safety features, including seat belts, airbags, and a metal enclosure. Motorcyclists, therefore, risk brain damage, spinal cord injuries, amputations, fractures, and road rash from being thrown from the bike or crushed by a car or their own motorcycles.
  • Causes of accidents: A motorcycle’s small size and maneuverability make it more prone to accidents. Commonly, motorcycle crashes occur when a bike hits a pothole or uneven pavement.

 

 

Proving Negligence in a Motorcycle Accident

In order to fight for the compensation you deserve after a motorcycle accident, your attorney must be able to prove that the injuries you suffered, both monetarily and physically, were the result of the other driver’s negligence. Negligence is the failure to act with a certain level of care that is expected in a given situation. To prove negligence in Wisconsin, your attorney must be able to prove that:

  • The law required the other driver to exercise a certain level of care
  • The other driver breached their duty of care
  • Your injuries are directly related to the other driver’s actions
  • The harm you suffered was foreseeable
  • The damages you suffered were caused by the other driver’s negligence
