When families lose loved ones in motor vehicle accidents

Wisconsin roadways, like most others throughout the nation, are often dangerous places. Sometimes, distracted, intoxicated or otherwise reckless drivers are on the road. The problem is that personal driving choices don't only affect the driver making them but can cause long-lasting consequences in the lives of others, especially when fatal motor vehicle accidents occur.  The law protects those who suffer due to other people's negligence by allowing them to pursue recovery for their losses in court.

A collision involving two cars happened on a recent Sunday evening at approximately 7:30 p.m. The accident had tragic results that undoubtedly changed the lives of two families forever. The crash occurred when a vehicle veered out of its lane and crossed the center yellow line dividing traffic.  

The car was being driven at the time by a 35-year-old man. When his vehicle drifted into the other lane, it collided with another car. A 60-year-old woman was operating that vehicle. Sadly, the impact of the crash killed both drivers.  

The resulting devastation of Wisconsin motor vehicle accidents like this one often intensifies when authorities contact family members to inform them of their sudden, unexpected losses. The weeks and months that follow a collision may not only be filled with grief but often financial complications as well, especially if families are unprepared to meet expenses associated with their loved ones' passing. When a wrongful death has occurred because of driver negligence, and the driver deemed responsible is also deceased, an immediate family member of the victim may file a legal claim against the decedent's estate.
