My motorcycle passenger is drunk. Should I allow that person to get on my bike with me if I’m riding in Milwaukee?

Motorcycle passengers, unlike passengers in other vehicles, contribute to the safe driving of the vehicle. You count on your passenger to hold on, to know when to shift his or her weight, and to avoid distracting you or making sudden movements that could result in a Milwaukee motorcycle accident.

Accordingly, it is important to think twice about allowing a passenger who has been drinking to get on your bike. The result of a drunken passenger could be a serious crash that results in injuries or fatalities. It may be safer to find another way for your passenger to get to his or her destination.

If a motorcycle driver or passenger who was drinking has injured you, then you may have the right to recover damages for your injuries. Damages may include compensation for your past, current and future medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, out-of-pocket costs, lost income, physical pain, emotional suffering, and other financial consequences of your Milwaukee motorcycle accident injuries.

Of course, insurers may not readily hand over fair and adequate damages to you. Instead, you and your Milwaukee motorcycle accident lawyer may need to fight for your just recovery. You can get started on your possible recovery today by contacting a Milwaukee motorcycle accident attorney at 1-800-800-5678 or 414-223-4800 and by finding out more about your rights in our FREE book, The Ultimate Guide for Motorcycle Accident Victims.
