For some Wisconsin residents, bicycles are a fun form of exercise and recreation. For others, they serve as an alternative form of transportation with significant economic and environmental benefits. Whether they are riding for transportation or purely for fun, cyclists face significant risk of injury if they are involved in an accident with a car, truck, or other vehicle.
At Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, we understand the dangers that bicyclists may face when riding on streets and roadways. Several members of our staff and legal team are cyclists themselves, and we are committed to protecting the health and well-being of bike riders across Wisconsin. That’s why we give away thousands of helmets every year to children across the state. Since the start of the Bike Helmet Give-away Program, we’ve donated more than 81,500 of these important pieces of safety equipment in order to increase awareness of bike safety.
Nevertheless, even cyclists who are extremely diligent about their safety run the risk of being involved in an accident.
