Residents in and around Hudson have probably heard about the recent devastating crash that took the lives of three teenage boys. The crash, which happened in late July, has brought a lot of attention to the serious concern of distracted driving.
Interstate 94 in St. Croix County near Hudson was recently the scene of a serious accident. According to members of the Wisconsin State patrol, the car accident took place midmorning on June 7 and involved three private vehicles and two semi-trucks. The initial cause of the series of collisions is not yet known.
When a person is injured in an accident involving an automobile it is standard practice for the injured person to make a claim against the driver who injured them as well as that driver's insurance company. Including the insurance companies is important because individual drivers do not usually have sufficient assets to reimburse the people they injure. But what happens if the driver does not have insurance?
The fact that the owner of a dog is generally responsible for any injuries caused by that dog is usually fairly straightforward. However, as evidenced by Pawlowski v. Am. Family Mut. Ins. Co., 2009 WI 105 (Wis. 2009) sometimes just determining who should be considered the owner of the dog can become quite complicated.
Automobile insurance is an important aspect of life which most people do not pay much attention to until they are in a collision. Unfortunately, when a collision occurs some people may find that their insurance coverage is inadequate and that their insurance company will not defend them throughout the litigation which may ensue.
After a car accident most people are shaken and confused, some are even dazed and injured, however, many will give an near immediate statement as to their account of how the accident happened. This can be dangerous.
