Wisconsin man cited for causing four-car accident

A Wisconsin man caused a four-car crash on May 1 in Saukville after he failed to yield to oncoming traffic. Police said that all injuries were minor, although several people were transported to area hospitals. The 26-year-old driver was cited for failure to yield, which was his second citation in two days. He was cited for speeding 16 - 19 miles per hour over the limit on April 30.

According to a press release from the Ozaukee County Sheriff's Office, the auto accident occurred when the driver attempted to turn left onto Highway I from the westbound lane of Highway 33. He turned in front of an eastbound vehicle. Those two cars then collided before crashing into two more vehicles.

No one suffered major injuries in this accident, but that's not always the case. Auto accidents caused by another driver's negligence can lead to serious damage and injuries. Victims of may suffer life-changing injuries through no fault of their own. These injuries may lead to costly expenses for things like medical treatment, ongoing care and time off work.

Victims who suffer injuries caused by negligent drivers may be entitled to compensation and may find value in speaking with an attorney. An experienced personal injury attorney could examine the case, determine if a claim is appropriate and estimate the amount of damages to request. The attorney could advocate on behalf of the client by presenting evidence and calling relevant witnesses. If a settlement is reached, the attorney could negotiate to maximize damages to cover the victim's expenses.
