When those who cause motor vehicle accidents do not survive

One never knows when a Wisconsin highway will turn from being an uneventful scene of moving traffic to the site of a tragic collision. Motor vehicle accidents often happen suddenly, without warning. In some situations, the drivers believed to have caused the accidents wind up suffering fatal injuries.  

This was the case in a recent incident that occurred Waukesha County. It was a Friday afternoon when two vehicles happen to be traveling in opposite directions on Interstate 94. At some point, the vehicle headed east careened out of control, crossing over the median and collided with the other car.  

A 34-year-old man was reportedly behind the wheel of the car that veered off its path. The sheriff's department that responded to the incident said that both vehicles sustained serious damage in the collision. The car that was hit was operated by a 58-year-old man who suffered injuries in the crash and was transported to a nearby hospital for emergency care. Sadly, the younger man died as a result of his own injuries. 

This Wisconsin tragedy is an example of the types of motor vehicle accidents that often lead to claims for personal injuries. A victim who survives his or her injuries is entitled to seek compensation for damages when another party's negligence is deemed a causal factor in a crash. If the driver who was negligent is deceased, the claim can be filed against his or her estate. Many accident victims use court-awarded compensation to cover medical expenses and other financial losses related to their injuries.
