Proving Fault After Motor Vehicle Accidents
Every accident is different and can involve any number of different factors. Distracted driving, driving under the influence, improper vehicle maintenance or faulty car parts could all be contributing factors to a car wreck. Additionally, the combinations of those involved in any given motor vehicle accident can vary. For example, crashes can involve:
- Single-passenger vehicles
- Semi trucks and commercial vehicles
- Single-passenger vehicle or truck collisions with a motorcycle
- Motor vehicle collisions with bicycles
- Motor vehicle collisions with pedestrians
Wisconsin is considered a comparative fault state for car accidents. This means, that if your own actions contributed to the cause of the accident, your damages may be reduced by the percentage you were at fault for the accident.
