Wisconsin’s take on bicycle helmet use

Posted on November 7, 2014 3:11 pm under Bicycle Accidents

The state of Wisconsin does not have any law in place that prohibits and penalizes bicyclists that are riding bicycles without a helmet, which means it is legal in Wisconsin to ride a bicycle without wearing a helmet.

It has been proven that wearing protective helmet while riding a bicycle may lessen the rate of fatalities and incapacitating injuries after an accident. As part of our commitment in promoting bike safety awareness, members of our staff and legal team at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® have been giving away thousands of helmets every year to kids across the state through our Bike-Helmet Give-away Program.

However, regardless of how conscientious a biker is in ensuring safety, they can still be involved in road accidents due to another party’s recklessness. If you believe a negligent driver in Wisconsin has caused you harm while riding a bike, consult with a bicycle accident lawyer at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® by calling (414) 271-0900 today.
