Grabbing your bike and hitting the pavement is a favorite pastime for many residents of Wisconsin. Whether you bike as a mode of transportation or as an outdoor hobby, hitting rugged trails or are racing in a competitive environment, riding a bike can come with a few dangers.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation states that between 2011 and 2013, Wisconsin averaged around 1,100 bicycle crashes each year. These collisions take place everywhere, from scenic country-ways to city roadways.
Bicycle Accident Victims Can Recover Damages For:
- Disfigurement and scarring
- Pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and interference with family relationships
- Emotional distress
- Lost wages, future earnings and earning capacity
- Past, present and future medical bills
- Wrongful death
Given that even the most ordinary bike ride can quickly become dangerous, it’s important to know how to deal with the consequences if an accident occurs.
