Motorcycle deaths in Wisconsin reduced last year

A 28 percent drop in motorcycle deaths last year was observed in Wisconsin, the lowest in the last four years. Last year, only 84 motorcyclists reportedly died in accidents compared to 116 in 2012. Motorcycle-related injuries also declined by 21 percent last year or 2,138 recorded injuries compared to 2,710 in 2012.

Reports stated that motorcycle fanatics and safety advocates made efforts to lessen motorcycle-related fatalities by reducing time spent by riders on the road during wet seasons. Additionally, more safety messages sent by the Wisconsin Motorcycle Safety Program and the Department of Tourism to motorcycle riders and other motorists through electronic billboards is considered to have contributed to the reduced deaths and injuries.

Unfortunately, as our legal team at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® knows, motorcycle riders in Milwaukee are much more likely to sustain traumatic injuries in an accident. If you have been harmed in a motorcycle accident due to another person’s negligence, such as a drunk driver, call 800-242-2874 to discuss pursuing legal action against that party.
