Wisconsin DOT reminds motorcyclists to be safe

Posted on April 21, 2016 10:21 am under Motorcycle Accidents

Wisconsin authorities recently advised motorcyclists to make safety a priority now that nice spring and summer weather will encourage an increased number of motorcyclists to hit the road, an article from FOX11 News reported on April 19.

The advice came after the state’s Department of Transportation (DOT) was notified of two serious motorcycle accidents. According to Patrol Lieutenant Lori Seiler in Winnebago County, they are expecting an increase in motorcycle accidents in the coming weeks and months. Aside from wearing proper safety gear, motorcycle experts told motorcyclists to be defensive and avoid driving at high speeds in order to prevent accidents from occurring. Other vehicle drivers should also watch for motorcyclists on the road, experts said. Compared to the six fatal motorcycle accidents reported last year, there were only two motorcycle deaths recorded in the state as of January.

Motorcyclists, unfortunately, are frequently left with debilitating or fatal injuries when they are involved in accidents with other motorists. If you or someone you love has been injured in a motorcycle accident, the good news is that we can help you fight for the compensation you need.
