Milk truck crash in Wisconsin injuries four people

Four people were injured in a crash that occurred on Friday, Aug. 30 around 7:30 a.m. The accident happened on Highway 27 when an 18-year-old driver pulled out from a stop sign into the path of a milk truck that was traveling south on the highway.

The milk truck hit the front passenger side of the 18-year-old's vehicle. Then the vehicle spun around and the rear passenger side hit the rear wheels of the milk truck before the vehicle was flung into the path of an oncoming pickup truck. The pickup truck hit the vehicle head-on, causing the vehicle to spin even more before it came to rest in a ditch. The pickup truck came to rest in the northbound lane of Highway 27, and the milk truck went into a ditch after the truck accident.

The sheriff's department stated that the accident was set off by the 18-year-old driver failing to yield the right of way to the milk truck. The drivers of all the vehicles involved as well as a passenger in the pickup truck were transported to hospitals with various injuries. The people who were injured in the accident may choose to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the driver who was deemed responsible for the accident. If won, their lawsuits could allow them to potentially receive reimbursement for their hospital bills as well as any time they had to miss from work due to their injuries.

Personal injury lawyers might be able to assist people involved in truck accidents determine whether or not they meet the requirements to file a personal injury lawsuit. If they do, lawyers might then be able to help them negotiate favorable settlements with the defendants in a more timely manner than they might have been able to do otherwise.
