Motorcycle deaths in Wisconsin drop by 28 percent in 2013

A report on January 18 stated that a 28 percent drop in motorcycle deaths in Wisconsin was observed last year. The decline in motorcycle fatalities last year caused the numbers to be the lowest since 2009. Only 84 motorcyclists were reportedly killed in accidents last year compared to 116 deaths recorded in 2012, with a majority not wearing helmets.

A reduction of the motorcycle riding season and safety awareness of riders are considered to be the main factors for last year’s decline in fatalities. Motorcycle-related injuries also dropped last year according to the data from the Department of Tourism, which shows that 2,138 people were injured in motorcycle accidents compared to 2,710 recorded in 2012.

People who choose to use motorcycles as a mode of transportation are, unfortunately, more vulnerable to being seriously injured in accidents. However, if your injuries were the result of a negligent driver on the road, you may be owed financial compensation from that party.
