Motorcycle crash victims fight with cases against Wisconsin man

Motor vehicle accidents are not rare. In fact, most people have experienced a wreck or been impacted by a crash. Every now and again, however, a traffic accident comes along that still is surprising due to the details that make it different.

Last May, a group of motorcyclists were cruising through Wisconsin when carefree riding was met with careless driving, some would even say criminally careless. A Wisconsin man has been criminally charged and now sued by his victims following a crash he caused on U.S. Hwy 151.

The traffic incident involved the one driver, age 26, and a group of 10 motorcyclists. When the driver crossed into the wrong lane of the highway, he crashed into the group and wound up killing two riders and injuring all of the others.

Some of the surviving bikers have filed personal injury lawsuits against the driver who is criminally charged with homicide by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle and other serious charges related to the fatal incident. They are at least seeking monetary compensation to cover the medical bills that are owed because of the wreck.

An attorney representing the driver argues that the defendant suffers from a mental issue that's left him unable to remember what happened before and at the time of the accident. Whether that is true is not for sure, but what is certain is that those impacted by the driver's actions that day will not forget. Lives were lost, a rider lost his leg, and other injuries were serious enough to necessitate life support.

Our law firm represents victims of accidents like this one, victims who often are those who sustain the most serious injuries when a crash occurs between them and another vehicle. Visit our Motorcycle Accidents page to learn more.
