There are a number of laws concerning motorcycle use in the state of Wisconsin, and all motorcyclists should know and obey these laws to protect themselves and other motorists.
In Wisconsin, motorcyclists and passengers under the age of 18 are required to wear helmets that have been approved by the U.S. Department of Transportation. The same is true for motorcyclists with a training permit. In order to meet these standards, the helmet’s chin strap has to be properly fastened.
Wisconsin law also states that it is illegal to operate a motorcycle unless the vehicle’s owner or operator has liability insurance. Drivers should carry proof of this insurance on every ride.
If someone is in a motorcycle accident, he or she has a limited amount of time to bring a lawsuit to court. Wisconsin Statutes Section 893.54 states that the victim must file a lawsuit within three years of the accident date. Similarly, an individual seeking compensation for property damage has three years after the accident to file a lawsuit.
However, these timelines can change and there are some exceptions, including an extended period of time for minor children. We recommend that motorcycle accident victims work with an experienced personal injury attorney who can ensure they do not miss their filing deadline.
Statistics suggest that, on average, a motorcycle accident occurs almost every four hours in Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) offers the following recommendations for motorcyclists:
Motorcycle accidents are as unique as the riders involved. However, there are some causes that are more common than others. These include:
