Appleton Motorcycle Crashes
Most people ride their motorcycle around Lake Winnebago for a fun, relaxing summer road cruise. The streets and highways in the Fox Valley offer a beautiful view of Wisconsin’s countryside. Unfortunately, many bikers and automobile drivers are not careful enough and the results can be catastrophic: data from the National Highway shows motorcycle riders are significantly more likely to die in a crash than passengers in other vehicles.
According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, in 2013, Outagamie, Winnebago and Brown counties were tied for 10th place for the highest number of fatal motorcycle crashes in Wisconsin. Taken as a whole, the Fox Valley tied for 3rd, only ranking behind Milwaukee and Waukesha counties. The motorcycle crash injury statistics are just as frightening. Brown County ranked 4th, Winnebago County was 10th and Outagamie County was close behind at 11th.
Taken together, the cities of the Fox Valley had the second highest number of motorcycle related injuries in the entire state of Wisconsin.

Appleton personal injury Attorney Ron Tusler has examined motorcycle crash data for the entire Fox Valley area, including Brown, Calumet, Outagamie and Winnebago Counties and has come to a shocking conclusion.

While only 3% of all motorcycle crashes reported since 1994 resulted in a fatal injury, 49.2% of these fatal accidents were alcohol related.
