A Milwaukee woman was charged with one count of homicide by negligent operation of a vehicle for an accident that occurred in 2014. She was expected to enter a plea this month. When Wisconsin family members experience the loss of a loved due to the negligent action of another person, as in this incident, they may choose to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
Police report that a man was crossing the street one evening. Video surveillance footage shows that he had stopped to make sure the traffic had cleared before crossing. A car driven by a 34-year-old woman struck the man as he attempted to cross the street. The video showed that the driver applied her breaks just before she struck the pedestrian. The man passed away several hours after the accident.
