Milwaukee Recreational Vehicle Accident Attorneys

Wisconsin is a great place to live if you like the outdoors. The lakes provide an aquatic playground for boating or jet-skiing enthusiasts; the beautiful countryside provides a wonderful setting for a bicycle or ATV ride; and the winter months turn fields and hills into gleaming white plazas cut by snowmobile tracks. But all the fun can come to a screeching halt when one becomes the victim of a recreational vehicle accident.

Although there are laws and regulations governing the operation of recreational vehicles, many people do not feel the same obligation to observe these rules as they do the rules associated with driving an automobile. Unfortunately, the safety mechanisms and protections of any recreational vehicle are far inferior to those present in cars and trucks, and although protective gear and helmets can alleviate some of the harm done, their effectiveness pales in comparison to auto safety engineering.

Chilling Statistics

The operator of a recreational vehicle that is involved in an accident is required to report the accident to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and these statistics are annually published. The numbers are chilling, to say the least:

  • In 2008, 12 people were killed while riding an ATV
  • 20 fatalities were associated with boating in 2008
  • From December 2008 through January 3, 2009, a staggering 13 snowmobile riders were killed
  • In 2006, 8 bicyclists lost their lives in accidents

These numbers provide ample reminder that recreational vehicle safety ought to be taken more seriously. If it were, the individual whose negligence has led to your injury may have acted differently, saving you the pain and suffering you now face.
