Causes of Car Accidents
Driver impairment is an important factor in many Wisconsin car accident lawsuits. In fact, driver impairment that stems from the use of alcohol, illegal drugs, prescription medications and over-the-counter drugs is a leading cause of car accidents in and around Milwaukee.
According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, not only does Wisconsin have the highest rate of drunken driving in the country, nearly 45% of all fatal car accidents and 40% of all fatal motorcycle crashes in Wisconsin involve alcohol.
