569 traffic fatalities in Wisconsin for 2011

Posted under Madison motor vehicle accidents attorneys

According to data, there were 569 traffic fatalities in the state of Wisconsin in 2011. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation announced this data regarding traffic crashes and deaths earlier this year.

This amount of fatalities is higher than the 2010 number but significantly lower than the five-year average. For the fourth year in a row, Wisconsin has experienced fewer than 600 fatalities.

Officials believe that several factors could have contributed to the lower number of deaths. High gas prices and the poor economy might have deterred Wisconsin residents from driving as much during 2011, which in return resulted in fewer car accidents.

Accidents can happen every day and could result in serious injuries. If you have been injured in a car accident, you need experienced representation on your side. Please contact the Madison motor vehicle accidents lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C. by calling 800-242-2874 today.
