Wisconsin car accident causes vehicle damage, minor injuries

Two vehicles were involved in a collision in Ellsworth, Wisconsin, on March 28. The car accident occurred during the evening hours on Highway 65 close to the entrance on the west side of the Pierce County Fairgrounds. The two vehicles that collided were a Dodge Neon and a Chrysler minivan.

Officers from the Pierce County Sheriff's Department and firefighters responded. At least one person involved in the accident received minor injuries and may have had a nosebleed, and the Ellsworth Ambulance Service was on the scene to provide medical assistance to those who were injured. The Neon received front-end damage. The condition of the other vehicle was not known, but firefighters cleaned up a fluid spill at the scene. The cause of the accident was not indicated. 

While it is not yet known what caused this accident or whether others were injured, a car accident such as this could result in costly vehicle repairs, lost wages and medical bills. These accident-related expenses may create financial hardship for the victims, and a personal injury lawsuit may be filed in civil court so that the victims can seek punitive damages from the responsible party.

Some car accidents are caused by the negligent or intentional actions of another driver, and victims of these accidents may seek retribution through a personal injury lawsuit. The punitive damages awarded in a civil court may pay for the financial expenses that the victims are responsible for after an accident. Individuals in Wisconsin who would like to explore their legal rights after car accidents may find it helpful to consult personal injury lawyers to learn more.
