    Common Causes of Car Accidents In Milwaukee and Wisconsin

    There are many reasons that car accidents occur. The following are some of the most common causes:

    • Distracted and inattentive driving – In many crashes, the driver at fault simply fails to pay adequate attention to the road and causes the collision. Learn more about how to prevent distracted driving.
    • Reckless driving – A person injured because of someone else’s reckless driving behavior may need immediate medical attention, which can often result in a long-term financial burden, particularly if the injured person must miss time from work.
    • Speeding – A person driving above the posted speed limit may put other motorists and pedestrians around them in danger of sustaining serious injuries from a collision.
    • Drunk driving – Alcohol and drug intoxication can have a profound impact on a person’s ability to operate a car or motorcycle.
    • Defective car parts – While some mechanical errors or defects cause problems that pose little or no threat to the driver or passengers of a vehicle, some can have a profound impact on the safety of motorists.

    The above are only some of the many possible causes of automobile accidents in Wisconsin. Not only do you need to know what caused your crash, but you also need to have sufficient evidence to prove that a certain party was negligent. The evidence that can be used to prove liability will differ from case to case. Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. understands the types of evidence that can prove liability and will take all the necessary time and resources to prove claims for each of our clients.

    Car Accident FAQS

    There are specific steps that should be taken after a car accident.

    At the scene of a car accident, assuming you are physically able to do so, you should contact your local authority. A police officer can arrive on the scene, collect information about the incident, including the identification of the driver at fault and any other witnesses. The police will also determine if the responsible driver has insurance coverage for their vehicle. The circumstances of the collision will then be documented in a police report. Before the police arrive, if you have contact with the other driver it is best not to discuss the details of the accident. The best practice is to simply and politely check to ensure that you are both okay and to offer an exchange of information.

    If you are hurt or seriously injured in a car accident, your first instinct will be to seek medical attention. You should do so even if you are not feeling any immediate pain, as certain conditions and symptoms may not present themselves right away. After you receive the proper medical attention, your next step should be to contact a car accident attorney who handles auto accident cases. You should not wait to contact an attorney, as you will have only a certain amount of time to have a claim resolved if you are not at fault.

    A common and disturbing problem some people face after an auto accident is not recognizing their injuries until hours or even days after the incident. These injuries may either go unnoticed because of internal bodily harm or because of adrenaline that clouds a person’s ability to feel pain immediately after an accident. If a person is uncertain, they may still want to be examined by a doctor. If a person receives an examination after an accident that reveals an injury, they may want to consider a lawsuit to have their injury treatment costs covered.

    In some cases, a driver’s insurance adjuster may want full access to your medical records. However, this information is guarded under powerful privacy laws and should only be given out if absolutely necessary. Before giving away this information, a person should consider a consultation with a personal injury attorney to learn more about their rights and options regarding the release of their medical information. A car accident can leave someone with serious physical and emotional injuries to overcome. Compensation can help manage these problems, taking care of practical expenses that may otherwise burden an injured motorist.

    When a person is injured in a car accident, they need to prove that they tried to prevent injuries the best they could. Wearing a seat belt is often cited as a first step for injury prevention in the event of a car accident. However, Wisconsin’s seat belt law places a limit on how much the failure to wear a seat belt can affect a person’s claim for compensation. If you have been injured in a car accident, whether you were wearing a seat belt or not, you may be able to pursue a claim against the person or people responsible.
