A group of Girl Scouts, along with a woman, who were alongside a rural Wisconsin road picking up trash were it by the driver of a pickup truck, who then fled the scene of the accident.

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.

Car accident injuries and death in hit-and-runs a growing issue

There is a rising concern over the number of hit-and-run accidents in Wisconsin and across the U.S. Anecdotal evidence is saying that there have been many such crashes in Milwaukee and in other areas of the state. Since 2013, in Milwaukee alone, there has been a consistent rise in the number of accidents overall and the percentage of those accidents that are hit-and-runs. 24 percent of accidents were hit-and-runs in 2013. By the end of 2017, that had grown to 29 percent.

Distracted driving could be major cause of car accident injuries

When there is an auto accident in Northeast Wisconsin, it has become common for it to be due to a distracted driver. It has gotten to the point where people who are in a crash will automatically and reflexively think that it was because the other driver was texting, talking on his or her cellphone, or just surfing the web. Many are under the impression that they can multitask and do so safely. Unfortunately, they cannot and it can lead to a car crash with injuries and death. A recent study from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety examined this troublesome phenomenon as well as other risky behaviors.
