Broadside accident kills 20-year-old man in Wisconsin

by | Nov 12, 2014 | Wrongful Death |

Drivers who don’t pay attention to what is going on around them put everyone around them at risk for getting into a serious accident. While many people think of accidents that are serious being caused by drugs or alcohol, sometimes they aren’t. The sad fact is that some serious accidents lead to injuries that can lead to death of the victim. One such accident occurred in Coleman, Wisconsin, on Wednesday.

The accident happened when a Yukon SUV driven by a 47-year-old man hit a sedan broadside. The driver of the sedan was a 20-year-old man. That man suffered from injuries that landed him in the hospital. Sadly, the man died on Friday, just two days after the accident. The driver of the Yukon was also injured and had to be taken to the hospital, but he is expected to recover from his injuries.

In this case, a young man suffered for two days after being injured in the car accident. His family probably had to deal with a lot of emotions as they watched their loved one suffer. Now, their emotions are likely to run rampant since he has passed away. They will have to bury their loved one knowing that a traffic accident thought to be caused by a failure to yield ultimately claimed his life.

Anyone who has lost a loved one in a failure to yield accident knows about the emotions that barrel out after the accident. As horrible as those emotions are, the financial impact can be almost as tragic. Seeking for their loss is one way family members of a deceased victim might be able to get some closure.
