Animal bites in one city still a major concern

Many families in Wisconsin own dogs and other types of pets. Like all other states, pet owners are obligated to maintain appropriate control of their animals to keep themselves and others who come into contact with them safe. Animal bites can cause serious, if not life-threatening, injuries. One city actually banned pit bulls, and some say since the attacks have significantly decreased.

Possible wrongful death situation in Wisconsin

Any time someone dies at the scene of a motor vehicle accident, it is always tragic. Situations that include more than one fatality are especially devastating. Such was the case in a recent collision that occurred on a Wisconsin roadway. When an accident is determined to have been caused by a negligent driver, there may be grounds for filing a wrongful death claim in court.

Your loved one's accident may be cause for wrongful death claim

The grief associated with learning that a loved one has been killed in a motor vehicle accident can be overwhelming. There are any number of factors that lead to such accidents, and many are associated with negligence. Surviving immediate family members of fatal accident victims in Wisconsin often have cause to pursue justice on the behalves of their deceased loved ones by filing wrongful death claims in court.

Wisconsin 97 site of many car accidents; infant is latest victim

When an innocent baby is injured in a motor vehicle accident caused by the negligence of a driver, it is understandable that the child's loved ones would want to seek justice in the matter. An incident occurred on a recent Thursday morning in Wisconsin that caused serious injuries to an infant and hurt two others as well. Those injured in car accidents may be entitled to file personal injury claims in civil court. When a victim is of minor age, a parent or legal guardian may act on his or her behalf.

Clarifying Wisconsin law regarding injuries from animal bites

Many people have had the terrifying experience of being attacked by a dog or other animal while strolling through their neighborhoods or visiting friends. Animal bites often cause very serious injuries requiring stitches, and perhaps even plastic surgery to achieve full recovery. Wisconsin law is very specific when it comes to animal bites and is known as a strict liability state.

Seasonal employee or independent contractor? There are important distinctions.

At first it seemed like an ideal summer job. You were working on a construction site, picking up new skills and getting paid well to labor under the sun's rays. Enrolled in your university's civil engineering program, you thought that the knowledge you gained over the break's four months would transfer nicely to your classroom environment. Unfortunately, you had offered to work a late shift for a friend and followed it up with a morning stint the next day. You were more tired than usual and injured yourself on the worksite.
