La Crosse, Wisconsin, Recreational & Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Motorcycle accidents can result in serious and fatal injuries. Usually the most serious injuries are suffered by the motorcycle rider. If you or someone you love has been involved in a serious motorcycle accident, you need experienced and skilled representation to maximize your recovery for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, long-term care needs.

Motorcycle accidents can cause serious injuries requiring long-term care or fatal injuries that result in the wrongful death of a loved one. If you or a loved one has suffered in a motorcycle accident, contact us at 608-519-4788 for a free consultation to protect your rights after an accident.

Because motorcycle riders do not have the protection of seatbelts or the stability offered by heavier four-wheeled vehicles, serious injury is more likely when a motorcycle rider is involved in a crash. Motorcycle injuries include:

  • Fatal accidents
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Fractures
  • Disfigurement
  • Road rash
  • Burns
  • Internal injuries

Our attorneys help you recover all damages suffered in a motorcycle accident

When you are in a motorcycle or other vehicle accident caused by another person, you have the right to recover damages for many types of injury and loss, including:

  • Medical expenses

  • Disability
  • Emotional distress

At Hale, Skemp, Hanson, Skemp & Sleik, our attorneys can provide experienced and strategic advocacy to maximize compensation for your injuries. We will begin an immediate investigation to collect all necessary evidence for your case including police reports, photographs of the accident scene, and medical documents. We will also take immediate action to contact witnesses for your case.

Experienced courtroom advocacy for motorcyclists

Motorcycle accidents require skilled representation from a legal team that understands the difficulty many riders face in the courtroom. We have the ability to investigate and will analyze the debris field, contact witnesses, and work with experts to assess the impact marks and skid marks. Our legal team will try to determine the exact location of the vehicle on the road and whether there were obstructions that hid the motorcycle.

Motorcyclists are often falsely perceived as “risk-takers” and juries can be harder on motorcycle-riding plaintiffs, even when the accident is clearly the fault of the other driver.
