Going out to eat isn’t something that most people associate with being injured. In fact, when you go out to eat, you likely expect that you will get to rest while you enjoy a good meal. For some restaurant patrons in a Wisconsin restaurant, a careening dump truck slamming into the restaurant was likely enough to ruin their meal.
The accident happened when the driver of the dump truck hit another vehicle from behind along State Highway 21. The dump truck then crashed into the restaurant. It happened at around 7 p.m.
Five restaurant patrons were injured in the crash, as was the dump truck driver. The dump truck driver’s injuries were classified as life-threatening. He was taken to Theda Clark Hospital. The condition of the other people who were injured weren’t known. The driver of the vehicle struck by the dump truck and the passenger in that vehicle weren’t injured in the accident.
This accident is still under investigation, but the fact that remains is that the injured people will likely face considerable medical bills. Those bills might place a financial burden on them that makes them have to make tough financial choices.
As many of our readers know, being injured in an accident can mean having to go to the hospital and having to go to various medical appointments. All of those appointments and visits come with a cost. Seeking compensation for those costs of the damages caused by the accident is one way that victims of truck accidents might be able to reduce the financial strain that might occur.
