Three injured in Wisconsin crash

Three people were injured in a crash that occurred near Janesville. According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, two vehicles were involved in the crash. The three people who were injured were all hospitalized.

A Toyota Prius reportedly hit a motorcycle on the southbound side of Interstate 39 at Route 26/Milton Avenue. The car accident occurred at approximately 4 p.m. on Monday, August 12. The Prius ended up in a ditch after the accident, and the motorcycle was found in the right lane of the roadway. The 56-year-old driver of the motorcycle was reported to be in stable condition at Mercy Hospital while his 63-year-old passenger was in serious condition at the same hospital. The 39-year-old driver of the Prius was transported to St. Mary's hospital where he was said to be in stable condition at the time of the report.

Traffic was already reportedly moving slowing before the incident due to another accident. The Janesville police, fire and EMS departments all responded to the accident. Wisconsin state police reported that they would continue to investigate the accident and that charges are pending in the case.

Personal injury lawsuits could end up being filed by those who were injured in the accident. These types of lawsuits could allow the claimants' to potentially receive reimbursement for their hospital and medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Wisconsin follows the modified comparative fault 51 percent rule. This means that claimants can be found to be partly at fault for an accident and still be able to pursue some compensation for it. Personal injury lawyers might be able to help individuals to file lawsuits and negotiate settlements for them. Source: Wisconsin Legislative Documents, "Contributory negligence," n.d.
