Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents



People come to western Wisconsin from all over the country and live here because of beautiful areas to camp, hike, swim, hunt, fish, bike, ski, boat and explore. Pedestrians and bikers who are injured because of someone else’s negligence not only have their enjoyment cut short, and may wish to pursue a claim for their injuries and resulting damage that can last a lifetime.

At the law office of Egan & Richgels, S.C., we have more than 30 years of experience handling personal injury cases in front of local juries in La Crosse, western Wisconsin, and southeast Minnesota.

We are intimately familiar with both the topographical and legal landscapes, and we use this knowledge to help people who have been involved in bicycle accidents or pedestrian accidents while visiting or living in southeast Minnesota or western Wisconsin. Contact us today to learn more during a free consultation about how we can help you.

Our La Crosse pedestrian and bike accident attorneys routinely help clients recover compensation for accidents involving:

  • Pedestrian knock-downs by cyclists
  • Collisions between bike riders
  • Runners, joggers or cyclists who have been hit by a car or truck
  • Crosswalk injuries
  • Sidewalk injuries
  • Hazardous conditions such as improper maintenance of trails, roads or parks
  • Pedestrians or bikers who have been chased and then attacked by other people’s dogs, other pets, or livestock

Accidents Along the Elroy-Sparta Trail

In addition to Wisconsin Dells, Milwaukee, Madison and Green Bay, a top spot for tourists who visit Wisconsin for scenic pleasure is the Elroy-Sparta Trail, located near Wilton and Norwalk. Located off of Highways 16 and 71, this path along the decommissioned and abandoned Chicago and North Western Railway line offers a 32 mile trail, including three tunnels and bridges for all ages to enjoy. This unique area is a popular destination for bike riders, hikers, walkers and runners. At peak season, this area can become quite congested, increasing the chance for a collision.
