A Wisconsin Car Accident this weekend left three motorists with injuries. Records show the crash happened at around 2 p.m. on Saturday, at the intersection of South Trail Road and Wisconsin 42 in Egg Harbor, Wisconsin.
A story published by the Green Bay Press-Gazette explained that a woman from Wilmette, Illinois, was driving along Wisconsin 42 when a vehicle suddenly pulled out into her path from South Trail Road. The woman was unable to stop in time and the two vehicles collided.
The impact of the crash left both drivers and a passenger from one of the vehicles seriously injured. Paramedics transported the victims to a local hospital for treatment.
The driver responsible for causing the crash was ticketed for failing to yield the right of way after she claimed she did not see the other vehicle.
The incident underscores the need for motorists to be more aware of their surroundings when driving.
The Green Bay Personal Injury Lawyers with Sigman, Janssen, Stack, Sewall & Pitz explain motorists eliminating distractions in their vehicles, such as cellphones and loud stereos, can achieve this goal. Drivers should also remember to always look both right and left twice before entering traffic at an intersection.
The firm is hopeful these tips will help prevent future accidents!

A 54-year-old woman from Marinette was sentenced earlier this week for her part in a Wisconsin Car Accident that left another motorist seriously injured.
The crash happened on June 9, 2012 at the corner of Froelich Road and U.S. 41 in Pensaukee, Wisconsin. According to an article from the Green Bay Press Gazette, the woman responsible for causing the crash was heavily under the influence of alcohol and parked along the side of the highway. When she attempted to cut across lanes of traffic while making a U-turn, another motorist struck her vehicle.
The impact left the other motorist with a broken leg. Meanwhile, the woman responsible for causing the crash was taken into custody and charged with several crimes.
In a plea agreement reached earlier this week, the woman was sentenced to seven months in jail, along with four years of probation. Her license will also be revoked and she will have to have an ignition interlock device installed on her vehicle.
While criminal penalties may deter motorists from drinking and driving, they may not help a crash victim get the money they need to cover expenses associated with an accident, such as medical bills and lost wages. If you have been hurt in a crash, the Green Bay Personal Injury Lawyers with Sigman, Janssen, Stack, Sewall & Pitz may be able to help get you the compensation you deserve.
