LA CROSSE MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYERS
Western Wisconsin Car-Motorcycle Collision Lawyers
Motorcycle accidents are notorious for causing severe injuries. Motorcycle riders do not have the benefit of the steel casing an automobile provides for protection from the force of a collision. Speed usually compounds the problem when a motorcycle driver is thrown through the air and into a hard object or the ground following a crash.
The office of Egan & Richgels, S.C. is committed to helping car-motorcycle collision victims get the compensation they deserve. If you or someone you care about has been in a motorcycle accident caused by another driver’s carelessness, we will work hard to help you get compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and other costs.
Motorcyclists Have Rights
Motorcyclists have the same right to use the road as all other drivers. However, we understand that not everyone understands this fact. Many people believe motorcycles should not be used, that they are dangerous and that motorcycle riders are accepting the danger by getting on their bikes. These people often find their way onto juries.
This is why jury selection is important. It is also why it is crucial to build a case with the strength to educate jury members who may be misinformed about the rights of motorcyclists or prejudiced against motorcycle riders for one reason or another. We know how to convince juries to award motorcycle collision victims fair compensation.
Insurance Issues in Motorcycle Accident Cases
Insurance laws do not require motorcyclists to insure themselves as fully as they can and should. Many motorcyclists and their insurance agents do not realize they should request and secure additional coverage as part of their motorcycle insurance policies.
While we advise people about getting appropriate coverage going forward, when people come to us it is often too late. We must work around the issue of insufficient insurance and pursue compensation from the negligent driver who caused the accident.
