Motor vehicle accidents especially tragic when no one survives

No Wisconsin motorist is immune to collisions when navigating state roadways. However, when drivers are alert and cautious behind their wheels and adhere to all traffic and safety regulations, they increase their chances of safely arriving to their destinations. When drivers are negligent or reckless, motor vehicle accidents are more likely to occur. Accidents involving fatalities are especially tragic.

Navigating crossroads in Wisconsin can be quite challenging, especially if more than one other vehicle is preparing to enter the roadway at the same time.

In short, no matter what time of day or night it is, there are bound to cars on the road, and where there are cars, there are risks for motor vehicle accidents

When criminal law intersects with motor vehicle accidents

Wisconsin police officers often later claim they had reasonable cause to engage in a vehicle pursuit when one or more parties allegedly left the scene of crime or exhibited some other behavior while driving that caught their attention.

This is evident in a recent tragedy that took place when law enforcement officers tried to catch up with a car they claim was traveling more than 90 mph.  

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.

Some motor vehicle accidents occur because of distracted driving, poor road conditions or any number of other issues. A recent crash that occurred on a Wednesday near Cottage Grove involved two cars, and resulted in injury and a fatality.
