Three taken to hospital after collision on Wisconsin 57

A car wreck in Brussels, Wisconsin, that occurred on March 9 left three people with injuries that required medical attention in a hospital. Early reports suggest that the car accident happened when the 19-year-old driver of a Ford Winstar failed to yield the right of way to a 65-year-old driver who was traveling east on County C.

A 19-year-old driver, who is Brussels, claimed that the victim of the wreck was in her blindspot. The driver even stopped at a yield sign before pulling onto County C, but she still somehow managed to not spot the other driver. It is reported that both vehicles involved in the accident were severely damaged.

The 65-year-old commuter whom the Windstar driver collided with also had a passenger in his vehicle. The commuter's passenger, who is a resident of Forest Park, Wisconsin, was also injured in the incident. The 19-year-old driver was given three separate citations of allegedly not wearing a seat belt, failing to yield the right of way and having open intoxicants in the vehicle.

Even when fault is obvious and the drivers who are at fault admit their mistakes, it is sometimes the case that the insurance companies try to pay out the least amount of compensation possible. Experienced personal injury attorneys may be able to ensure that insurance companies not take advantage of the people whom they are supposed to be compensating. Additionally, people in Wisconsin who have suffered injuries in car accidents involving negligent drivers may benefit from consulting personal injury attorneys who may explain their rights and options and recommend courses of action, including filing a civil case against the negligent driver.
