Don’t automatically assume that just because you were involved in a Wisconsin motorcycle accident that it was your fault. You may or may not be at fault, or you may have a certain percentage of fault in the accident. Find out in this video what an experienced Wisconsin accident attorney says about determining fault in an accident.

When determining who is at fault in a Milwaukee motorcycle accident, Wisconsin law requires the application of the comparative negligence statute. Either an insurance company or a jury will assign a percentage of fault to the parties involved in the crash, which will affect the total recovery. For example, if you are found to be 20 percent at fault for an accident when your case is worth $100,000, you would receive $80,000. In the event you are found to be 51 percent at fault, you will not be able to make a financial recovery because you were found to be more at fault than the other driver.
