There are many contributing factors in many auto-pedestrian accidents, with driver inattention being the most common cause.

A woman is recovering after being hit by a car in Kenosha, Wisconsin. According to police, the woman was walking in the roadway outside of the crosswalk when a driver spilled coffee on himself and collided with her. The woman was taken to a local hospital with a head injury but is expected to be fine. The driver was issued a citation for inattentive driving. The crash is still under investigation.

Insurance companies will sometimes try to reach a quick settlement and limit recovery to the lowest possible amount. As the investigation continues, the injured victim should consult an experienced personal injury attorney to understand her legal rights before considering any settlement offer.

Every year thousands of teens die in traffic accidents—often as a result of the teenage driver’s excessive speed, lack of experience, or inattention.

Five high school students who cut class one afternoon last month were in a crash that killed two and left three others seriously injured.

The crash happened just before the end of the school day when a 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer left the road and rolled before coming to rest in a field. Three passengers riding in the rear seat were ejected from the vehicle; all were seriously injured. Police said excessive speed likely caused the driver to lose control, before the car flipped several times. The crash is still under investigation.
