Things to consider during car accident settlement negotiations

Nobody wants to deal with the aftermath of a car accident. While there may be extensive property damage, the real losses come in the form of physical and emotional harm that can result in overwhelming medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering. Car accident victims whose injuries were caused by the negligence of another may be entitled to compensation. Yet, while they try to focus on their recovery, they may struggle to deal with the legal issues confronting them when they choose to pursue a personal injury lawsuit.

April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

Each year, April is commemorated as Distracted Driving Awareness Month. This month is thus a very good time for drivers in Northeast Wisconsin to educate themselves about the dangers of distracted driving. It is also a good time for them to promise not to engage in risky behaviors like texting and driving, playing with the radio and the like.

Wisconsin's basic speed law illustrates important point

Like other states, Wisconsin has what is called a basic speed law. While many residents of Northeast Wisconsin might not think of it, the posted speed limits they see are actually limits for ideal road conditions. In other words, the speed on the sign is the speed one can legally travel when the weather is clear, the surface is flat, paved and level and there is relatively light traffic.

Three Wisconsin Girl Scouts killed, 1 critically injured

A group of Girl Scouts, along with a woman, who were alongside a rural Wisconsin road picking up trash were hit by the driver of a pickup truck, who then fled the scene of the accident. Three Girl Scouts and the woman died because of the accident, while another Girl Scout was critically injured. The driver eventually surrendered to authorities.

Motorcyclist suffers car accident injuries due to drunk driver

Northeast Wisconsin motorcyclists are in danger of being injured or losing their lives in a crash simply due to their inherent vulnerability. When they encounter other vehicles that are being operated recklessly, negligently or by a driver who is under the influence, the danger is enhanced. Since there can be severe injuries and loss of life with a motorcycle crash, the victim and family left behind must consider their options to move forward with a legal filing for compensation.

DUI's and speeding lead to crashes and car accident injuries

Speeding is a major factor in the severity of car accident injuries in Sheboygan and throughout Northeast Wisconsin. When a vehicle is traveling at a high rate of speed and there is a crash, the likelihood is that there will be substantial damage and major injuries. The investigation is vital to understanding exactly what happened and why. This is especially important when the injuries require hospitalization and medical treatment or even lead to a fatality.
