Fatal motor vehicle accidents often lead to litigation

A  young man was recently traveling as a passenger in a vehicle that was involved in a collision in Wisconsin. Another vehicle that was carrying a university volleyball team was also involved. Motor vehicle accidents like this one often occur when motorists are negligent or reckless, placing themselves and their passengers in harm's way.  

That appears to be what happened as the volleyball team headed home. A motor vehicle carrying two occupants that was in the lane adjacent to the team bus is said to have suddenly veered out of its lane, crossing into oncoming traffic. The car slammed head-on into the bus.  

While everyone on the bus escaped the incident unscathed, both the driver and the passenger in the car suffered fatal injuries and were pronounced dead at the scene. At the time of death, the two men were ages 20 and 22. Local fire and police departments, as well as emergency medical technician units were deployed to the accident site to render as much aid as possible in light of the tragic situation.

Other motor vehicle accidents that result in fatal injuries have often led to civil litigation. Family members of deceased victims can file wrongful death claims against the estate of the person deemed negligent in their loved ones' deaths. There is no need for a spouse or parent or adult child of a deceased parent to carry such a burden alone. A Wisconsin personal injury attorney can explain the process to anyone currently considering filing such a claim.
