The damages that can be sought after a car accident

Who actually thinks that they will be involved in an accident over the holiday weekend? The answer to this question likely is: very few people. Despite this contention, the Fourth of July holiday weekend is one of the most dangerous times of the year to be on the road. The combination of potentially drunk drivers, distracted drivers and aggressive drivers could make driving to your favorite destination hazardous.

Four things you should not do after an accident

With as many miles that people drive during the summer months, no one actually expects to be in an accident, despite the safety precautions that may be taken (i.e. wearing seatbelts, limiting distractions, or driving within the speed limit). Nevertheless, accidents do happen, and it pays to be prepared to preserve one’s right to recover money damages.

Why you should deal with the temptation of road rage

It seems too early for the height of the summer to come about, but the Fourth of July weekend will be here before we know it. Known as the midway point of the summer, this weekend is also known for getaways to Wisconsin Dells and other summer vacation spots. With getting away being such a popular pastime, traffic is certain to be heavy in spots. With that, patience should be at a premium.

Summer time in Wisconsin is known for road trips. Wisconsin Dells is not a top summer vacation destination for nothing. And with the Fourth of July holiday weekend coming up, it is expected that tens of thousands of people will be taking to the road across the state.

NHTSA's Jeep inquiry could lead to a recall

In a number of our posts this year, we noted that 2015 could be a greater year for recalls than 2014, which was unfortunately a record year for automotive recalls. Indeed, many people remember the ignition switch recall that plagued General Motors as it was revealed that scores of injuries and deaths were attributed to the defect. 2014 ended with more recalls due to defects found in many automakers’ cars from Japanese airbag maker Takata. 

When should I bring a lawsuit after a car accident?

With the summer driving season in full swing, we can expect more traffic on Wisconsin’s freeways and interstates. We noted in a previous post how dangerous this time of year can be for young drivers; but the reality is that any time of year can be treacherous for those who  do not use reasonable care while behind the wheel.

Trucking accident injuring Tracy Morgan to be settled

One of the most high profile accidents of 2014 appears to be nearing a settlement. Comedian Tracy Morgan, likely best known for his stint on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” reportedly has reached a settlement with Wal-Mart stemming from the accident he was involved in last summer.
