Fatal crash occurs in Wisconsin

A 24-year-old Hayward man died as the result of a crash that occurred in Monroe County on Sept. 24. The accident occurred near Cataract around midnight on State Highway 27.

According to the report, a 68-year-old man was traveling on the highway when an oncoming vehicle crossed over the center line of the road and hit him. He and his 73-year-old passenger both sustained non-life-threatening injuries when their car rolled into a ditch and were transported to a local hospital. The driver of the other vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene of the car accident.

A personal injury lawsuit could allow those who were injured in the accident to seek compensation for their medical expenses in a personal injury claim. Additionally, their injuries may have made them have to miss time from work, which might make them eligible to be reimbursed for their lost wages. Also, they could even be entitled to compensation for their pain and suffering.

When someone is involved in an accident, a personal injury lawyer may be able to assist them by compiling claims against the other people involved in the accident. The lawyer may conduct a separate investigation into the cause of the accident and use such information to help support the victim's claims. This may allow the lawyer to negotiate for a fair settlement. Personal injury lawsuits are basically based on the claims that the plaintiffs' injuries would not have occurred had it not been for the negligence of the other party involved.
