Victims of a collision between a motor vehicle and a group of ten motorcyclists are beginning to file civil lawsuits against the driver responsible for causing the crash. According to an article from the Appleton Post-Crescent, the crash happened on May 31, 2012, along State Highway 151 in the town of Taycheedah, just north of Fon Du Lac, Wisconsin.
Reports show the 26-year old man driver of the motor vehicle that caused the accident was driving under the influence when he crossed the centerline of the highway and struck a passing group of motorcyclists. Two bikers were killed as a result of the Appleton Car Accident, while other members of the group were left seriously injured.
Court documents indicate that one of the victims was rushed to a local trauma center in Neenah, where he spent nearly 100 days hospitalized after suffering the loss of a leg due to the incident. The victim’s medical bills add up to more than $400,000. Another victim was placed on life support following the accident with more than $100,000 in medical bills. Both are seeking compensation for their injuries and associated expenses.
The Appleton Personal Injury Lawyers with Sigman, Janssen, Stack, Sewall & Pitz are hopeful a decision in the cases will help bring a sense of closure to the tragedy for the victims, as well as their friends and families.
