At Rozek Law Offices we have experience handling Wisconsin motorcycle accident cases. Attorney Rozek began  riding motorcycles as a child and has continued his love for motorcycles as an adult.

We have aggressively fought the most common defenses in  motorcycle accident cases, the motorcycle was speeding or the motorcyclists were not wearing helmets. Fortunately, we have had success overcoming these defenses through our use of nationwide experts. These experts can address the human factors elements of the witnesses that claim they thought the motorcyclist was speeding. In general, our experts have established that it is common for people to perceive that a motorcycle is traveling at a greater rate of speed that it actually is traveling. We have also successfully used conspicuity experts to establish that the at-fault driver violated the Wisconsin Rules of the Road in the operation of their vehicle. With regard to the failure to wear a helmet defense, it is used primarily in Wisconsin motorcycle accidents that result in traumatic brain injuries. The burden is on the defense to show that the injuries would not have occurred had the motorcycle rider been wearing a helmet. However, the law in Wisconsin recently changed. In 2003, the Wisconsin legislature created Section 901.53 Wisconsin Statutes, which limits the ability of defendants from raising the failure to wear a helmet as a defense in a civil lawsuit.

  • Learn. More than 90% of riders involved in accidents had no formal training. Take a Motorcycle Rider Course to develop good basic riding techniques.
  • Get Licensed. Nearly half of all motorcycle riders involved in accidents are unlicensed or improperly licensed.
  • Prepare. Wear appropriate gear for comfort and protection.
  • Be Seen. Stand out. Wear bright clothing and use retro-reflective material.
  • Be Awake. Fatigue and drowsiness can impair a motorcyclist’s ability to react.
  • Plan. When riding in a group, determine your route in advance and coordinate it with the other riders.
  • Inspect. Conduct a safety inspection of your motorcycle before each ride.
