Legal options after a serious motorcycle accident

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.

Failure to yield a part of deadly motorcycle crash?

When it comes to motorcycle accidents, one of the most common reasons that they occur is because drivers in larger vehicles, such as passenger vehicles, fail to yield to the smaller vehicle. This may have been the scenario in a recent motorcycle accident in Wisconsin, which occurred on July 21 in Ozaukee County.

What are some common causes of motorcycle crashes?

Motorcycling is a favorite mode of travel for many in Wisconsin, the state that is home to the Harley-Davidson Motor Company. However, motorcycling presents risks that traveling in a standard automobile does not. Specifically, motorcyclists are basically left out in the open. There are no seat belts, no air bags and no crumple zones to protect them in the event of a collision. Moreover, the sheer size disparity between a motorcycle and standard automobile generally means the motorcyclist will be on the losing end of the crash. Therefore, it is important to understand what some common causes of motorcycle accidents are.

Is last year's motorcycle injury still bothering you?

Spring is officially here on the calendar, but it's not motorcycle season quite yet in Wisconsin. However, some may be still carrying around the ramifications of last year's motorcycle accident injury. What you may have initially thought was nothing, may still be lingering in terms of injury and an inability to live your normal life. It's not too late to take action if you were the victim in a motorcycle accident.

Don't disregard your summer motorcycle accident injury

There may be a layer of snow on the ground, and your bike may have been retired for the season, but that doesn't mean that you aren't still affected by a motorcycle accident injury you sustained last summer. In many instances, passenger vehicles can be the negligent factor in causing those injuries. Whether a passenger vehicle failed to yield, ran a red light or merged without looking carefully, motorcyclist injuries can often be attributed to another's negligence.
