Wisconsin Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
For many people, motorcycles are a wonderful way to travel to and from
work, commute long distances, or enjoy a recreational thrill. The state
of Wisconsin has various laws in place to protect motorcyclists; however,
serious accidents still occur. When an accident happens, even motorcyclists
wearing proper head, eye and body protection are no match for the impact
of another vehicle.
Motorcycles do not have the same safety features as cars, so riders can
easily fall victim to severe injuries. Motorcycles are small and light,
and a collision with a passenger vehicle or stationary object can quickly
spell disaster for a biker. If you have been injured, it is important
that you work with a Milwaukee personal injury lawyer from Cannon &
Dunphy right away.
A variety of factors will be taken into consideration following an accident,
and no two accidents are ever the same. Commonly, riders face catastrophic
injuries, even when wearing protective gear. It is not unlikely for a
motorcycle accident victim to suffer head trauma, spinal complications,
paralysis, concussions, broken bones, road rash and, in some cases, death.
The impact of a moving vehicle can be enough to render an individual unconscious
and leave him or her facing long-term traumatic brain injuries. Additionally,
the cost to repair motorcycles is often significant, and out-of-pocket
expenses can quickly add up.
Fighting Insurance Bad Faith Practices
While it is a requirement for licensed riders to carry insurance, it does
not guarantee that the insurance companies will act in good faith after
an accident. Insurance providers are supposed to pay compensation to injured
victims in a timely manner; however, in some cases, reports of insurance
bad faith have arisen. Insurance companies are only looking out for their
best interests, and sometimes, they can greatly under-compensate victims
or completely deny compensation. If you are struggling with your insurance
provider after a motorcycle accident, you need to work with an attorney
