Wisconsin man dies after pedestrian vs. car accident

A Wisconsin man has succumbed to his injuries nearly two days after being struck by a car. The victim's injuries were simply too severe for the 77-year-old man. The Wisconsin State Patrol is assisting the Burlington Police Department with its investigation into this tragic car accident.

The pedestrian had been at a Kwik Trip Gas station at the corner of Pine Street, which is also known as Highway 83, and Hidden Creek Lane. As he crossed the street, he was hit by a car that was southbound on Pine Street. The 65-year-old driver stayed at the scene and cooperated with authorities.

The victim was originally taken to Burlington Memorial Hospital to be treated for his injuries. Later on, he was taken by helicopter to Froedtert Memorial Lutheran Hospital in Wauwatosa. It has been reported that the victim suffered injuries including a fractured spine and blunt trauma to his hands, arms, torso and head. Despite the efforts of medical personnel, the man died.

It is unknown whether the driver will be charged in connection with this horrible car accident; either way, the family of the pedestrian has the right to file a wrongful death claim against the driver. When someone is severely injured as a result of an accident, medical costs can add up quickly. When that same person ends up dying as a result of their injuries, the family must then face funeral costs. These and other expenses may be recoverable under Wisconsin law if the family is able to prove that negligent actions of the driver caused the death of their loved one. No amount of money can compensate a family for their loss, but a successfully processed claim may help the family recover from the financial impact of the accident.
