Helping Victims Of Motorcycle And Moped Accidents

Mopeds are a convenient way to run errands and travel shorter distances. But operators and passengers of both mopeds and motorcycles are also much more vulnerable to injury.

Accidents involving motorcycles or mopeds often result in serious injuries such as broken bones, road rash, brain and spine injuries or death. Driver recklessness, carelessness or distraction is commonly the cause of these accidents.

An Experienced Personal Injury Attorney Can Help

If you, a family member, a loved one or a friend is the victim of a moped or motorcycle accident it is in your best interest to seek legal representation. An attorney who is knowledgeable about these types of accidents can provide resources and options that may not always be obvious.

  • A careless or reckless driver;
  • An intoxicated, drugged or overtired driver; or
  • A driver who was texting while driving.

The Rules Of Driving A Car Or Truck

Wisconsin roadways are not as safe as they could be and motor vehicle drivers are often not as vigilant as they are required to be by Wisconsin state law. This can be particularly dangerous if you are operating a motorcycle or moped near such a driver. However, Wisconsin law is very clear as to what is required of car and vehicle drivers. Motorists should always:

  • Yield to pedestrians who are in crosswalks. Motorists are required by law to stop for any pedestrian in a crosswalk;
  • Be attentive and aware, and this includes being aware of the presence of motorcycles and mopeds around you. This means no eating, drinking, texting, putting on makeup, or other distracting behavior; and
  • Use caution when changing lanes.
