There is always a certain amount of inherent risk involved when traveling by motor vehicle in Wisconsin or any other state. Some people may be more at risk than others, such as inexperienced drivers, those driving in severely inclement weather, or those sharing the roadway with another motorist who is impaired or distracted at the wheel. When motor vehicle accidents occur, the latter two factors are often the cause.
There is really no way for you to know if the driver in a car nearby is daydreaming or otherwise distracted. Taking hands off the wheel or eyes off the road, even for a split second, is enough to cause a serious collision. As for drunk drivers, they are a menace to society.
If another motorist caused you to suffer injury, you may wish to consider filing a personal injury claim in a civil court. State law allows accident victims to seek compensation for damages. Such damages may include emotional trauma, as well as physical pain and suffering.
