Take caution during the "100 deadliest days on the road"

As the Independence Day holiday nears, the summer road season is in full swing across Wisconsin. School is out, the pace is more relaxed, and it's the time to make memories with loved ones. For many, this means family vacations to Wisconsin Dells, area lakes and rivers, or other popular destinations around the state. For teenagers, though, the summertime represents something much more sinister.

Wisconsin car accidents often blamed on excessive driving speeds

Distracted driving, speeding and failing to adhere to traffic signs are common causal factors in Wisconsin motor vehicle collisions. Car accidents continue to occur on the busy roadways of the state, and many innocent victims suffer injury due to the negligence of others. A recent incident involving two vehicles resulted in the death of the driver deemed responsible and injury to another.

UW-Milwaukee research aiming to make state's roads safer

Ongoing research at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee's School of Architecture and Urban Planning hopes to incorporate crash data into recommendations that can turn the tide of fatal pedestrian, bicycle and auto accidents across the state.

Animal bites may result in visits from law enforcement officers

People in Wisconsin who own pets are responsible for their animals. If a dog, cat or other animal bites another person, the owner may be held legally accountable. Such injuries can be very severe, leaving nasty scars or, in rare cases, resulting in death. In a recent incident, a man, whose dog was accused of biting another person, is also suspected of several other serious crimes.

Recent tragedy just one of many car accidents at intersection

Nearly every city in Wisconsin has at least one intersection that sees more crashes than others. If drivers fail to pay close attention, car accidents occur. A serious accident that recently occurred at one of these dangerous intersections gave police the opportunity to remind drivers to remain vigilant on the roads.

How to avoid dog bites

Have you ever been bitten by a dog? Dog bites happen for a number of reasons, but prevention is key. Don't let an attack happen to you or your loved ones. Read on for more information on how to avoid an incident.

Car accidents often occur at intersections

Intersections are typically busy areas of road that can become cluttered with traffic, making safe driving a challenge. All motorists are obligated to remain alert behind the wheel, obeying traffic signs, road regulations and yielding when necessary. When Wisconsin drivers are negligent, car accidents often occur, resulting in collisions between multiple vehicles and serious injuries to victims.

Taking legal action after wrongful death incident in Wisconsin

What can be more devastating than learning a loved one has been killed due to the negligence of a motorist on a Wisconsin highway? Such wrongful death situations are devastating for the lives of those who are left to mourn the loss of their family members. Sorrow is often intensified when grieving families are hit with funeral expenses, medical bills and other accident-related costs.
