Traffic was heavy today with accidents occurring on I-43, I-794, and Highway 175; both left lanes were closed on I-43 near Holt Avenue (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Milwaukee Traffic was a Mess This Morning. Crashes reported on I-43; I-794; Highway 175, December 12, 2019). Heavy traffic causes less space for vehicles to maneuver and with frustration rising, as everyone is trying to reach a certain destination, the risk of having an auto accident increases. Heavy traffic should encourage drivers to become more cautious to those around them. When stuck in heavy traffic, calm yourself by realizing that you are not the only person stuck in traffic. Try to plan for or plan around such occurrences, so that the result of being stuck in traffic does not induce negative consequences like being late to work.
However, car accidents occur are inevitable. Therefore, attaining information about your options to be better prepared regarding what will follow when you or a loved one encounters a collision with another party is beneficial. One option is to attain a lawyer. If a party can prove that another party has caused damage to it because of negligence, monetary gain may result. Monetary gain from such accidents can involve payment for physical pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, and future lost wages. It is the duty of drivers to exercise care while on the road. If a party files a lawsuit, he or she becomes the plaintiff and the person who caused the injury, the defendant. Discovery takes place, which means that facts are gathered and exchanged, and further questioning takes place on both sides. Typically, at this point, the case is settled, as many cases do not go to trial. If the case is settled, one party accepts money from the other and agrees via signature on a release not to further pursue the case (American Bar Association, Personal Injury, December 12, 2019).
