It only takes a second for an accident to occur. Some are due to impaired or distracted drivers, while other accidents occur because of mechanical problems or inclement weather conditions. In many cases, criminal charges may be filed against a reckless or negligent driver whose actions result in injuries or death. Those who are injured or have lost a loved one due to an at-fault driver’s actions have a right to seek compensation for their injuries and losses. This is done through personal injury lawsuits filed in civil courts.
On March 28, a serious truck accident occurred at the intersection of two Sheboygan County, Wisconsin, roads. A mother and her two children were in an SUV, headed north on County Y. A semi-truck carrying milk was traveling east on County FF.
Video and pictures from the crash scene show the milk truck on its side, with the cab and trailer disconnected, and the SUV with heavy damage. According to reports, the driver of the semi-truck was not injured in the crash. The 30-year-old driver of the SUV was taken by medical helicopter to Theeda Clark Medical Center. Her two children, whose ages weren’t reported, were taken to a hospital in Sheboygan with what were reported as minor injuries.
Police are still investigating the crash and have not yet made a determination as to which driver was at fault in the accident. If the truck driver is found to be at fault, the woman could seek compensation for herself and on behalf of her children for their injuries. Claims for compensation may include pain and suffering, medical expenses and emotional distress, among others.
