DOT: One Motorcyclist Injured or Killed Every Four Hours
According to the latest statistics released by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT), on average, a motorcyclist is killed or injured every four hours in Wisconsin. In one year alone, motorcycles were involved in 2,404 motor vehicle crashes. Of the more than 500 fatalities suffered due to motor vehicle traffic crashes that year, nearly 15% were people riding motorcycles. Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable to injuries and death in an accident such as a high-impact crash or rollover, because they are largely unprotected. If you or a loved one has been injured in a crash due to another party’s negligence, a Milwaukee motorcycle accident attorney can help you pursue a personal injury claim.
Motorcycle accidents can strike at any time, and any number of the following hazards can impact the severity of injuries and damage caused:
- Dangerous weather conditions
