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.

Our team understands that outdoor recreation comes with costly consequences if boaters or vehicles on the road are negligent. When injury strikes, our team of attorneys are here to fight and get you the outcome deserved.
