Motorcycle accidents and motorcycle crashes in Wisconsin
Motorcycle accidents and motorcycle crashes killed 2,862 motorcyclists and seriously injured another 58,000 motorcyclists in 2000. Unfortunately, the fact is that there are many experienced motorcyclists who simply go unseen and ignored by automobile and other vehicle drivers. These motorcycle accidents and motorcycle crashes may occur when a driver turns right in front of your motorcycle or when a car pulls out from a roadway or drive in front of your motorcycle. The Wisconsin Rules of the Road govern liability for Wisconsin motorcycle accidents.
Whatever the case is, if you are not more at fault for the motorcycle accident than the other driver, then you have the right to recover for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any disability and disfigurement related to the motorcycle crash. Moreover, whether the insurer involved is the other driver's or your own uninsured motorcyclist insurer, it will want to pay you as little as possible and will not protect your legal rights.
Wisconsin bikers may also be wrongfully blamed for motorcycle crash and motorcycle accident by a witness or investigating official. Therefore, there is a need to collect all evidence after such motorcycle crashes and motorcycle accidents. Although they certainly make a genuine effort, investigators may not be looking out for the motorcyclist. Accordingly, Wisconsin biker or motorcyclist seriously injured or killed must have an advocate and investigation that looks out for their interests after a motorcycle accident.
