Thanks again to our clients for their support over the years. We just received another great recommendation:

I am extremely grateful to have had Jon as my attorney for my personal injury case. I feel Jon went above and beyond to make sure I received the settlement I deserved for my injuries. Every aspect of my case was taken care of by Jon and his wonderful staff and I can honestly say that I was in good hands from beginning to end.

As of June 1, 2010, auto insurance is now mandatory for all car owners in Wisconsin.  The law requires minimum coverage of $50,000 for the injury or death of one person, $100,000 for the injury or death of two or more people and $15,000 for property damage.  Drivers that do not have insurance can be fined up to $500.

The law requires that drives keep proof of their insurance information in the car.  Police officers can request proof of insurance at traffic stops and accidents.  Failure to provide this proof of insurance can result in a fine of $10.

The law also requires uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage each with minimum limits of $100,000/$300,000 for bodily injury coverage.

More information on the new insurance laws can be found at the websites for the Office of the Commissioner of Insurance and the Wisconsin Department of Motor Vehicles.

Wisconsin has numerous laws in place to ensure that the roads are safe for bikes.  Following laws regarding bicycling can help reduce the number of bike accidents and make the roads safer for bikes and cars alike.

Wisconsin Statute 346.075 provides that cars must give bikes a minimum of three feet of space when they are passing a bike.  Bikes must also allow at least three feet when they are passing another car or a stationary object in the street including parked cars. Wisconsin Statute 346.24 says if a car is stopped to yield right of way to someone on a bike, it is illegal for any approaching car to pass the stopped car.  Finally, according to 346.804, if local law permits riding a bicycle on a sidewalk, they must yield right of way to any pedestrians on the sidewalk.

If you have any questions regarding a bike accident or any other personal injury questions, feel free to contact Groth Law Firm, S.C. Groth Law Firm, S.C. has offices to meet with clients in Brookfield, Milwaukee, Green Bay and Marinette.

Wisconsin Statutes Chapter 346, Rules of the Road, has an interesting section buried within all the rules regulating the operation of both cars and bikes on the road.  According to Wisconsin Statute 346.79(1) it is illegal in the state to ride a bike that does not have a seat.  Those danger seekers who choose to violate the law should be aware that people who violate this bike law can face a fine of up to $20.
