Two-car accident in Wisconsin kills two, injures five

On March 3, 2013, a two-car crash in eastern Wisconsin left two people dead and five others injured. According to police, the car accident occurred when one car ran a stop sign and broadsided another vehicle. Two of the three passengers in one of the cars died at the scene, and the third was airlifted to a hospital. All four passengers in the other vehicle were taken to hospitals.

Police said that they believe that both alcohol and speed were factors in the crash, but they did not say which driver was drunk or the speeds at which the cars were traveling at the time of the accident. It is also unclear whether the alleged drunk driver was one of the injured people who were taken to hospitals or one of the people who were killed in the crash.

Every year, thousands of people die in alcohol-related accidents. Each of these accidents is completely preventable, yet they happen because people make the irresponsible decision to drink and drive. Often, this decision ends tragically when innocent victims lose their lives or become permanently disabled. When this happens, the victims may have the right to seek damages from the suspected drunk driver.

When victims suffer at the hands of drunk drivers, speeders or others who take unnecessary chances on the highway, it is important that they have the chance to collect damages for their medical bills, mental anguish and any costs associated with the accidents. Many victims turn to personal injury attorneys for advice. A personal injury lawyer may be able to help these victims recover the damages that are needed to defray the costs and expenses of serious car accidents.
