Can drivers be injured in parking lot accidents?

The holiday week was punctuated with a snowstorm on what is arguably the busiest travel day of the year: the day before Thanksgiving. Of course, there were a number of travel warnings and advisories, and it appears that many drivers took heed to warnings about reducing speed, keeping safe distances between vehicles, and not driving aggressively.

How much each year is lost in Wisconsin car accidents?

Just as a threshold notion, car accidents in LaCrosse and in Wisconsin can be costly. When you consider the amount of money spent on medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages and even future income lost (from people who are killed in accidents) it is no wonder that hundreds of millions of dollars are lost in car accidents each year.

More winter driving safety tips

Indeed, many people diagnosed with depression may be receiving benefits, but many others suffering from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may be eligible for benefits as well. 

Small increase for Social Security benefits in 2015

For those receiving Social Security disability benefits or Supplemental Security Income, the annual cost of living adjustment (COLA) is an important announcement. Many people receiving these benefits count on them because they are their only source of income. So if they are going to continue to make ends meet, and they are unable to find or maintain a job, their benefits have to increase by some degree.
