Wisconsin rollover crash injures 3

When a motor vehicle accident is caused by one driver, and other people are injured, the people who suffered a personal injury can hold the negligent driver accountable for their injuries. They may choose to seek compensation for damages including pain and suffering.

Recently it was reported that a driver caused a Wisconsin rollover car accident in which three individuals were injured. The accident occurred on Highway 41 in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin.

According to news sources, a car driven by a 45-year-old Appleton man was traveling northbound on Highway 41 near South Military Road when he attempted to merge. During his attempted merge, he struck a car driven by a 43-year-old woman from West Bend. She had two passengers in her car, both sharing the woman's same last name.

The 43-year-old's car hit a concrete median and rolled over while the 45-year-old's car spun out and stopped in the middle of the highway, presumably on the northbound side.

The 43-year-old woman, her 20-year-old male passenger and 22-year-old female passenger, were all taken to St. Agnes Hospital in Fond du Lac. They were treated for injuries that were called non-incapacitating. All three were wearing seatbelts which may have prevented more serious injuries.

The 45-year-old was not reported as suffering an injury from this accident, although he claimed to suffer a neck injury from a previous accident. He reportedly claimed his previous accident prevents him from turning his head. Not turning his head would explain his merging difficulty.

If he did not turn his head to check his blind spot during merging, that may make him negligent and liable for the personal injuries to the three people in the other car.
