Located on the St. Croix River, Hudson provides a scenic backdrop for a motorcycle ride. Just as with any motor vehicle, motorcycles have certain risks, and if you’re involved in a collision with a car or truck, you may sustain severe injuries that change your life forever.
All motorcyclists should wear protective gear and drive defensively to avoid sustaining serious injuries in an accident. Just as important, however, is knowing where to drive—and at what times—to avoid road conditions that may result in a motorcycle accident. Certain roadways in Hudson pose a danger to motorcyclists, whether due to defective design, traffic congestion, or weather conditions.
Some of the city’s most dangerous intersections include:
As with any other type of traffic-related accident, human error and risky driving behaviors, such as speeding or alcohol impairment, can cause motorcycle accidents.
Other factors that relate to the design of a motorcycle accident include:
Another structural issue with motorcycles that can result in serious injury or death is a complete lack of protection from the elements in an accident. Motorcycles do not have the protective features of other vehicles, such as a steel frame, airbags, or seat belts. This means that ejection from the vehicle is likely during an accident. Motorcycle accident injuries are often among the most serious injuries one can endure due to this lack of protection and ejection from the vehicle.
Some common injuries to be suffered in a motorcycle accident include:
Motorcycle accidents can have profound financial and emotional impacts, and—while no amount of money can ever completely compensate one for the pain and suffering a life-changing injury can cause—the motorcycle accident injury claims process provides an avenue for injured individuals to obtain the compensation they deserve.
Unfortunately, this process creates a lot of confusion. To alleviate that confusion, we have provided the answers to some of the questions our Hudson motorcycle accident clients ask us most often about recovering damages after a motorcycle accident.
A motorcycle accident claim or lawsuit tries to prove that someone else caused the accident and show the expenses and impacts you incurred because of your injury. If your accident resulted from someone else’s careless and reckless actions, and the at-fault party had insurance, this is likely how you will obtain compensation for your injuries.
In Wisconsin, the statute of limitations for motorcycle accident injury lawsuits is three years from the date on which the accident occurred.
The term “damage” refers to a payment made in compensation for harm. Economic damages are payments made for the expenses you incurred from your injury. Non-economic damages are compensation for the impacts that your injury had on your quality of life.
Some examples of the expenses commonly included in motorcycle accident damage claims include:
Quality-of-life impacts in non-economic damage claims may include:
Because each case is valued on unique factors, including the actual expenses incurred and the severity of the injury, there really is no “average” settlement in a motorcycle accident case.
Several factors can affect the value of your case:
As mentioned, insurance companies have tactics they use to avoid paying out a fair amount of compensation to individuals who have been injured by their insured. While an attorney has the experience and knowledge of the legal process to counter those tactics, the insurance companies are banking on the notion that the average motorcycle accident victim does not. One of the most important things an experienced Hudson motorcycle accident lawyer can provide for you is experience and knowledge of the process.
