Experienced Bike and Boating Accident Attorneys

Warmer weather in Wisconsin means hitting the lakes, roads or trails for some fun on your bike or boat. But with more boats on the water and bikes on the road, the chance for accidents increases. Bike collisions are often more catastrophic than typical vehicle accidents due to the size difference between a bicycle and motor vehicle. In addition, boating accidents are especially dangerous because they can result in accidental drowning by a person who was not fatally injured upon initial impact.

For more than 35 years, Gingras, Thomsen & Wachs has represented families across Wisconsin in bike and boating accident cases. Our team understands that outdoor recreation comes with costly consequences if boaters or vehicles on the road are negligent.
