Support for families following fatal motor vehicle accidents

At approximately 4 a.m. on a recent Monday in Wisconsin, a crashed vehicle was found along a highway. A local sheriff's department reported two fatalities in connection with the collision. When fatal motor vehicle accidents like this occur, it often leaves grief-stricken families feeling a strong desire to pursue justice after learning that driver negligence was a likely causal factor in their loved ones' deaths.  

The sheriff's department stated that once preliminary investigations occurred, it was determined that the crash had actually occurred several hours before the vehicle was found. Sadly, two men, ages 28 and 27, were pronounced dead at the scene. The man believed to have been behind the wheel at the time of the crash was ejected from the vehicle upon impact, likely due to the fact that he was not wearing proper seat restraint at the time.  

The body of his passenger, who had apparently been buckled into his seat, was still in the car. Police say investigators determined that the car had careened off the road around a bend. They said the vehicle appears to have rolled over several times before coming to a halt.  

Authorities also stated that excessive speed was probably the biggest causal factor in the collision. When Wisconsin families suffer the untimely deaths of their loved ones in motor vehicle accidents that could have likely been prevented, they often seek justice by filing wrongful death claims in civil court. Successful litigation often provides compensation for damages that grieving families can use to help offset expenses associated with their loved ones' deaths.
