Wisconsin motorcycle accidents often result in fatalities

A recent tragedy that took place in Wisconsin is definitely not the first of its kind. Motorcycle accidents are always a risk for those who choose such a form of travel. As in many other motor vehicle collisions, two lives were lost in the accident that occurred on a recent Sunday afternoon.

It was nearly 2:30 p.m. when a motorcyclist who was apparently carrying a passenger seems to have lost control of the motorcycle. The vehicle reportedly veered out of its lane of traffic and smashed into a car heading in the opposite direction. Reportedly, both occupants on the motorcycle were ejected from the machine.

The 53-year-old man and the 26-year-old female riding with him were both found to have no pulses when rescue workers arrived on site. A 66-year-old woman was behind the wheel of the other car that was struck in the tragic crash. She does not appear to have suffered any injuries in the collision, but she was transported to a local hospital as a precautionary measure.

An investigation into the situation remains ongoing because it was unclear at the time of this writing which of the two fatal victims was operating the motorcycle when it collided with the car. In other motorcycle accidents involving passengers, surviving family members have sometimes filed wrongful death claims when it was determined that other parties were negligently responsible for their loved ones' deaths. If an immediate family member has questions about filing such a claim in Wisconsin, a personal injury attorney would be able to provide answers and offer guidance throughout the process.
