Wisconsin truck accidents: woman injured after crash

Mothers frequently drive their children to various locations in Wisconsin and around the nation. Whether the drive is to work or school or simply for recreation, it is a time for family members to be together. However, when car or truck accidents occur, a routine drive can prove to be catastrophic. A recent accident involving a tow truck has left the victims with a variety of serious injuries.

Last month, a woman was riding in her van, accompanied by her son and daughter. According to police, a 29-year-old woman towing a car with a tow truck ran a stop sign. The complaint states that the truck crashed into the van. All three occupants of the van had to be sawed out of the vehicle.

After the crash, the tow truck driver allegedly stole a car from a nearby person. She then reportedly bit an officer and continued her behavior even though police had used pepper spray and had tased her. Reports state that she attempted to get away and ran over a police motorcycle.

The mother in the van remains in intensive care with serious injuries at a local hospital. The son has experienced difficulty while walking. The daughter suffered a brain injury, bruises, fractured bones and hearing loss. The mother was the primary breadwinner and now can no longer work. The children have had to stop attending college to care for their mother and to save money.

When Wisconsin families are injured in truck accidents because of someone else's erratic or negligent behavior, some choose to file a personal injury lawsuit. A knowledgeable personal injury attorney can help families understand their options and how best to proceed in the litigation process. A favorable award can provide victims and their families compensation to help offset exorbitant hospital bills and provide for future lost wages.
