Even drivers who typically follow the rules of the road in Wisconsin sometimes fall victim to the curiosity of a new text message. Unfortunately, car accidents are often caused by drivers who think that it is safe to take their eyes off the road long enough to read a message and, perhaps, type out a quick response. This decision can easily lead to a car accident with serious, even deadly, consequences.
Victims who are injured by such a driver are often left with a pile of medical bills that they wonder how they will pay. To further complicate their situation, they may be unable to work, resulting in lost wages. Other victims must cope with the death of a loved one, including funeral expenses and the other financial consequences of such a loss. However, there is help available for such victims in Wisconsin.
