Two high school students injured in pedestrian crash

The morning and afternoon commutes to and from work or school can be stressful at times. Many motorists feel rushed to get there on time and are hastily trying to get home at the end of the day. No matter the situation, safety and attention should not take the back seat. Motorists are required to always follow the rules of the road and drive safely. Unfortunately, this does not always occur, resulting in crashes involving other vehicles, cyclists and even pedestrians.

Helping you prove liability in a car accident

Motor vehicles are very resourceful. In fact, most residents in Wisconsin utilize a personal vehicle to get around and travel to and from work. And depending on the time or day and type of road traveled on, motorists can expect to share the road with a wide variety of vehicles large and small. All motorists are tasked to drive safe and remain attentive. Unfortunately, this does not always occur.

What constitutes distracted driving?

When motorists in Wisconsin and elsewhere get behind the wheel of a vehicle, this activity is much more than starting the vehicle, putting it in gear and maneuvering it with the wheel. The task of driving is constantly filled with distractions from the outside world. Whether it is a motorist's cellphone, the radio, a passenger in the vehicle, food, beverages and even applying makeup, driving simply do not just focus on driving when they are behind the wheel.

Helping you initiate a personal injury action after a car crash

Society's reliance on motor vehicles can be seen all around us. In Wisconsin and other states across the nation, the roads are filled with various types of vehicles. Motorists and occupants are travel to various destinations for a wide variety of reasons; however, one thing will always remain. Drivers are required to follow the rules of the road and drive safely. Failure to comply with this or uphold this duty could easily be the cause of a serious or fatal automobile accident.

How is it possible to determine driver distraction after a crash?

We see distracted drivers on the road all the time, even though distracted driving is extremely dangerous. We see them looking down at a phone, turning and reaching in the backseat, or steering with their legs while they hold food or grooming supplies in their hands.
