Yes, you may be able to recover for the injuries caused in a Wisconsin motorcycle accident even if you never technically collided with another vehicle. The situation that you describe, where something fell off of the roof of the car or truck in front of you, is a type of Wisconsin motor vehicle accident.
You may be able to make a legal recovery for this type of motor vehicle accident if you can prove that someone else’s negligence caused your accident injuries. In other words, you need to prove that the other driver failed to exercise reasonable care and that as a result you were injured. The other driver may have failed to exercise reasonable care if, for example, the item(s) on his roof were not appropriately secured to the vehicle to prevent them from falling off and causing an accident or injury.
Since you may be entitled to a legal recovery, it is important to contact an experienced Wisconsin motorcycle accident attorney about your injury and possible recovery.
