With the winter months setting in, there are going to be fewer motorcycles on the roadways in Wisconsin. That will make things easier for other drivers on the road, because other motorists oftentimes do not pay attention to motorcycles or simply do not see the smaller vehicles.
The negligence of other drivers is one of the primary causes of serious motorcycle accidents.
Even if a motorcyclist is wearing a helmet, any type of collision with another motor vehicle has the potential to cause severe injuries and even death. No matter how cautious a motorcyclist might be, other drivers may not operate their vehicles with the same level of care. When a motorcyclist suffers severe injuries in a collision, there may be legal options to attempt to pursue financial compensation.
Broken bones, spinal injuries and even brain injuries are all possible in a motorcycle accident. These types of injuries can lead to weeks or months in the hospital, and then even more time with continuing medical treatment and rehabilitation. Needless to say, the medical costs can add up quickly. Injured motorcyclists who didn’t cause the accident to begin with may need to explore whether or not they have a valid claim to pursue a personal injury lawsuit.
