Motor vehicle crashes are among the most common injury-causing events. Statistics show that over 6 million car crashes occur in our nation each year.
Doug Keberle, Dan Patrykus and Mike Laufenberg represent clients injured in car crashes throughout the state of Wisconsin. They know that people injured in car crashes are suddenly forced to deal with health care providers, medical bills, surgeries, lost wages and job insecurity — usually due to no fault of their own. Those injured in car crashes know better than anyone that their injuries could have been avoided if simple common sense and caution had been used by the other driver.
Keberle, Patrykus & Laufenberg believes that the at-fault driver’s insurance company must be held accountable. Insurance companies too often look for excuses not to pay what is fair. We fight insurance companies for car crash victims.
Common Causes of Car Crashes
A driver’s failure to operate his car with common sense is called negligence. Some of the more common causes of car crashes are:
• Distracted driving – With the onset of technology, drivers are doing more and more in the car instead of exercising caution and watching the road. Reading text messages, composing emails, taking phone calls, setting radio stations or being distracted with music can all be directly related to the cause of a crash and can be negligence for which an insurance company is responsible.
• Driving Under the Influence – Despite all of the efforts to educate everyone about the dangers of drunk driving, it is remarkable how often that these crashes still occur. Operation of a 1500 lb motor vehicle at 65 mph is dangerous enough without adding impaired judgment and slowed reaction time into the mix. An intoxicated driver can take the life of an innocent operator or passenger in an instant.
• Reckless Driving – Drinking and distractions are not always needed to lose control of a car. Sometimes deliberately reckless behavior of operators is enough. Driving at speeds in excess of reasonable speed limits can cause catastrophic injuries. The driver who carelessly changes lanes without warning, or attempts to make turns at too fast a speed, or even drives after inadequate sleep endangers the lives of everyone else on the road.
