Car accident leads to fatal injuries in Wisconsin

Drivers in Wisconsin know that when they should driver differently in inclement weather than when the sun is shining. There are several weather and natural phenomena that can reduce visibility on the roads and make it more difficult to drive. The possibility of having a car accident when visibility is reduced becomes greater.

Alcohol may be a factor in deadly Wisconsin car accident

Most Wisconsin drivers know that they shouldn't drink and drive. However, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of drivers each year that get behind the wheel of a car after they have been drinking without regard for the fact that by doing so, they are putting everyone on the road at risk. The odds of a driver being involved in a car accident increase dramatically if that driver is drunk.

Wisconsin police officer critically injured in car accident

Wisconsin police officers assume a certain amount of risk while on duty. They know that the possibility of being injured or killed is very real every time they go on a call. In fact, it's typically just part of the job. But what about when they are off duty? Unfortunately, police officers are just as likely to be involved in a car accident off duty as anyone else.

Wisconsin man left to die in hit and run car accident

Wisconsin drivers typically do their best to obey the traffic laws and be considerate to others on the road. When most drivers are involved in an accident, they are considerate enough to stop, especially if someone may be hurt. In fact, the law requires them to do so. Unfortunately, there are those who flee the scene of a car accident, not even stopping to make sure that no one is hurt. Finding a hit-and-run driver can be time consuming and challenging for authorities.

Double Recovery in a Personal Injury Claim?

When an insured person is injured in a car accident, he or
she is often compensated by his or her insurance company. The person's
insurance company will later seek reimbursement for the money it paid its
insured, seeking payment from the person(s) who injured its insured, this is
known as subrogation. Subrogation can be confusing, especially so when a
person's insurance company is not successful in its attempted subrogation. A
Wisconsin Supreme Court case from the Spring of 2011 examined this issue when
an insured couple faced the unique prospect of being paid twice for their
medical expenses.

Wisconsin woman cited in car accident

Failure to yield the right of way. This may just be one of the most common citations written after a car accident. When a driver fails to pay attention and properly yield to another car when required, the end result is often an accident at worst and a near miss at best. Every driver in Wisconsin has at some point felt that rush of adrenalin that comes with knowing that you narrowly missed either hitting a car or being hit by a car because you weren't paying attention.

Wisconsin sees an increase in car accident deaths from last year

Wisconsin has seen an increase in fatalities due to car accidents from this time last year. According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, 333 people have died in connection with a car accident. That's 44 more than this time last year.

Musician killed in blow-out crash in Eau Claire

The band While We're Up lost one of its members on July 8 as the rock group travelled between tour sites on a Wisconsin roadway. The fatal crash happened when the car in which the band members were travelling blew a tire. As happens in many such car accidents, the fatality occurred when the driver of the vehicle lost control as a result of the flat.

River Falls head-on crash under investigation

Wisconsin has some busy roadways, and Highway 29 between River Falls and Prescott is no exception. A portion of the highway was closed for a couple of hours on July 1 due to a head-on collision. Both drivers sustained injuries that were initially characterized as non-life-threatening.

River Falls farmer avoids serious injury after car accident
