Hire an Experienced Bike Accident Attorney
As home to top-of-the-line cycling manufacturers, famous competitions, and nationally recognized trails, Wisconsin has plenty to offer bicycling enthusiasts and amateurs alike. Riders enjoy savings in gas, health benefits, and helping the environment. Despite the strong presence of both cycling enthusiasts and casual bike-riders in our communities, the dangers of the roadway are not to be underestimated.
No matter how cautious, cyclists sharing the roads with motor vehicles will always be dangerous. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation states that between 2011 and 2013, Wisconsin averaged around 1,100 bicycle crashes each year. These collisions take place everywhere, from scenic country-ways to city roadways.
Bicycle Accident Victims Can Recover Damages For:
- Disfigurement and scarring
- Pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and interference with family relationships
- Emotional distress
- Lost wages, future earnings and earning capacity
- Past, present and future medical bills
- Wrongful death
Given that even the most ordinary of scenarios can quickly become dangerous, it is important that both cyclists and drivers alike understand the risks, and take steps to prepare both to avoid them, and to deal with the consequences if an accident still occurs.
