Negligence Per Se
Each day, drivers depend on cars, trucks, motorcycles, and other vehicles to transport them to important social and professional destinations. While many people understand the importance of maintaining their vehicles to prevent automotive breakdown, people often do not realize the importance of proper maintenance and safety while behind the wheel to prevent accidents and serious injuries.
Failure to observe the laws and rules of the road, unsafe behavior behind the wheel, and other serious infractions may result in a serious car accident, which can affect the lives of not only the driver of the vehicle, but passengers and other people out on the road, as well. Persons who cause a serious accident may be considered “negligent” in the eyes of the law and may face serious penalties as a result.

Personal Injury Lawsuits and Negligence Per Se
When it comes to car accident lawsuits, a driver who causes an accident may be found guilty through “negligence per se” if any of the following conditions apply:
- The driver violated a public duty or failed to protect the safety of others
- Exceeding a certain rate of speed may be considered a danger to the public
- Failing to act in a manner that is consistent with agreed-upon social standards
- Acting in a way that can be considered inherently negligent
An experienced car accident attorney may be able to help prove that a driver behaved in a negligent manner and should be liable for injuries and other damages caused by the accident.
If you or someone you love has been hurt in a serious car accident, you may be eligible for compensation for medical bills, pain, suffering, and other damages. Contact an experienced Wisconsin car accident attorney of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874 to discuss your legal options.
