Motorcycle Accidents

Injured in a Wisconsin Motorcycle Accident?

Our Oak Creek Motorcycle Accident Law Firm Is Ready to Fight For You

Motorcycling is intended to be an enjoyable and exciting alternative to traditional transportation. Riders are entitled to feel safe on the road, especially after getting the additional training needed to ride. However, not everyone on the road is as prepared as the rider; therefore, serious accidents do happen. Motorcycles provide no protection for riders on impact, so even a minor accident can have devastating consequences. The high degree of injury and damage that usually results from a motorcycle wreck can make these cases challenging. Therefore, you should always consult with a qualified motorcycle attorney if you have been hurt in a crash.

Martin Law Office, S.C., provides compassionate yet aggressive advocacy for parties injured in motorcycle accidents and other auto collisions. Our Oak Creek motorcycle accident law firm combines science and law to construct a well-founded, persuasive case for an appropriate damage award. If you sustained injuries or lost a loved one in a motorcycle wreck, then our attorneys can explain your legal right and options. If possible, then we will defend your rights in insurance negotiations or the courtroom.

How Can I File a Motorcycle Injury Claim in Wisconsin?

Victims of motorcycle accidents are often faced with major life-threatening injuries. These can range in severity, but all can create a burden on the injured rider and their family. The most common injuries sustained from a motorcycle accident are:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI). Wearing a motorcycle helmet minimizes the risk of these injuries. However, a serious brain injury is still possible even if a rider wears a helmet. These injuries often cause permanent impairment.
  • Spinal cord injury. A spine injury often causes paralysis below the site of the injury, resulting in lifelong impairment.
  • Broken bones. Without the protection of a car, a motorcyclist may sustain multiple broken bones in the event of a wreck. These are among the most common types of motorcycle injuries.
  • Skin lacerations. Without protective gear, serious skin lacerations and road rash may result from a wreck.
  • Internal organ damage. The force of an impact can severely damage a motorcyclist’s internal organs.
  • Wrongful death. Due to the severity of most motorcycle accidents, wrongful death is not uncommon.

The seriousness of your injuries means that you might have to rely on the compensation from an injury claim for the rest of your life. The compensation may cover medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, future lost earnings and other expenses related to your injuries.

However, unless you establish that a party other than yourself was at fault, you will not recover from any of these damages. At Martin Law Office, S.C., we understand the stigma that often attaches to motorcycle riders as careless risk-takers, and we work to present you in the best light possible. We investigate tirelessly and even employ detailed accident reconstruction to present a clear and compelling picture of the events that led to the accident.

Can I File a Claim for Broken Bones from a Motorcycle Accident?

Broken bones from motorcycle accidents can prove physically, emotionally and financially taxing. Additionally, associated costs can number well into the thousands, depending on the severity of your injury and whether surgery is necessary. Common types of broken bone injuries suffered by motorcyclists include:

  • Stable fractures. This occurs when one of a pair of bones, such as the ankle bones, breaks while the other does not. These can cause severe pain and permanently limit the range of motion of the joint.
  • Compound fractures. This type of fracture occurs when a bone breaks in one or more places and pierces the skin. These can be very difficult to set and take a long time to heal.
  • Traverse fractures. A traverse fracture occurs when a bone breaks “cleanly,” at a right angle to the bone.
  • Oblique fractures. An oblique fracture occurs when a bone breaks at an angle. These can be difficult to set.
  • Impacted fractures. An impacted fracture occurs when a bone breaks into pieces, and a fragment pierces another bone.

While broken bones themselves sometimes require long-term physical therapy or rehabilitation, they also often lead to additional complications. Infections, osteoarthritis and nerve damage are just a few of the problems that can result from broken bones, potentially leaving you with even more medical bills and further hindering your ability to return to work.

Our attorneys draw on their vast knowledge of the legal and medical fields to assess the extent of your injuries. We then determine who is liable and ultimately improve your chances of a successful legal outcome.
