Wrongful death claims can come after a fatal car crash

Car accidents are something that can't always be prevented. This is of very little consolation when you lose a loved one in a fatal car crash. If you find out that the car crash was actually due to another driver's actions or inaction, you might be ready to do something about your loved one's death.

Know your options after losing a loved one in a fatal car crash

You never expected your loved one to go to work and not come home after the shift was over. When you got the call that your loved one was in a car accident while driving for work and that your loved one wasn't doing well, you probably want to just crumple into a pile. While this is understandable, you will have to work on grieving for your loved one and moving forward.

Claims for compensation due to a death are serious

Losing a loved one in a tragic accident is something that you can't predict or prepare for. When this happens, there are a lot of unknowns that you might have to deal with. The financial uncertainty is one of the biggest issues that you might face besides the emotional trauma. We can't help you to deal with the emotional trauma of your loss. Instead, we can help you to find out if a wrongful death lawsuit might help you to deal with the financial impact of the loss.

Seeking compensation for wrongful death after a car accident

We recently discussed the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's statement regarding the fact that teen drivers are at higher risk when they drive. This is rather troubling since teens often see getting their driver's license as a big milestone. It is also important because it is a reminder that teens must have ample practice before they are allowed to drive alone.

Centers for Disease Control says teen drivers at higher risk

It's not a shocking statistic: Most people would probably guess that teen drivers were more at risk for accidents than their adult counterparts. While it might not be true for every individual, generally speaking, teen drivers have less experience behind the wheel, so they aren't always equipped to deal with every road condition or situation they encounter.

Issues older drivers may face as they age

Young drivers may be the most high-risk group due to their inexperience, but experience alone doesn't make one a good driver. Older drivers can also become high-risk drivers as they age, and it's often wise for family members to talk to them about whether or not they should be behind the wheel.

Children are in great danger as pedestrians

Pedestrians in Wisconsin are always taking a risk when walking in parking lots, near roads and in other areas where motor vehicles are common. A pedestrian accident, even at a slow speed, can be devastating. However, experts note that children are an especially high-risk group.

Wisconsin sees increase in summer driving risk

Like the rest of the country, the people of Wisconsin love to get out on the open road for a weekend getaway or lengthier road trip. As the cold winter months melt away and the highways heat up, it is important to be mindful that Wisconsin is statistically more dangerous for drivers in the summer months.

Are pedestrian deaths rising or falling?

With all of the advancements in technology, such as GPS systems that give traffic updates, back-up cameras and auto-braking systems, one might assume that pedestrian accidents would be dropping in the United States. However, according to a recent study, they've actually been going up, and the change has been rather dramatic.
