Car Accidents in Wisconsin
Intersections are known for being some of the most common – but dangerous – places for accidents to occur in the state of Wisconsin and beyond. At an intersection, drivers are expected to pay attention to other drivers who share the roads with them so that they can anticipate where others are headed. However, this does not always occur, and accidents take place in the blink of an eye. In one recent year’s time, about 2.5 million intersection accidents took place due to the recklessness of others in the U.S. If you have been hurt in a car accident in Wisconsin, it is crucial that you speak with an attorney that you can trust.
