Wisconsin car accident explained through reconstruction

Some accidents require the expertise of an accident reconstruction specialist in order to determine exactly what happened. For instance, a car accident that occurred in June 2012 left authorities wondering which of the vehicle's four occupants was driving at the time.

Man wanted in connection with Wisconsin car accident found

Distracted driving accident awareness a focus for Wisconsin DOT

The United States Congress decided that April is designated as National Distracted Driving Awareness Month.

Did driver fail to exercise caution in Wisconsin car accident?

Under ordinary circumstances, any number of obstacles can hinder a person's ability to safety navigate Wisconsin roads. In the wintertime, inclement weather such as snow and ice present a new set of dangers for drivers. Under these conditions, drivers not only need to be more cautious, but also need to make the determination of whether they should even attempt to be out on the roads. The risk of a car accident can significantly increase during times of bad weather.

Wisconsin woman dies from head injury suffered in crash

Numerous news stories about accidents involving fatalities throughout the country and here in Wisconsin involve drivers and passengers that were not properly restrained during a crash.
