Seeking justice in car accidents where at-fault parties have died

A recent tragedy occurred that resulted in a fatality. There is no lack of car accidents in Wisconsin during the winter, and a casual factor in this particular situation appears to have been poor road conditions. The motorist who purportedly caused the accident died as a result of her injuries.

Pursuing justice for victims of Wisconsin truck accidents

Anyone who has ever been cut off on the road by a massive tractor-trailer understands how terrifying it can be. In Wisconsin and throughout the nation, many truck accidents are caused by negligent tractor-trailer operators. Excessive speeds, tired drivers and cell phone use are among the top common causes for collisions involving these enormous vehicles.

Learn to identify reckless driving behaviors

Keeping yourself safe on the road is about more than just making sure your vehicle is in good repair and that your mind is on the task in front of you. It's also about being able to spot threats and hazards early, so you can take evasive action before a situation gets to a crisis point. This is true whether you are dealing with debris and obstacles or with other drivers who might be operating a vehicle dangerously.

Motorcycle accidents likely to increase during the holidays

Many travelers navigate Wisconsin roads during the holidays. From Thanksgiving through New Years Day, people visit family and friends throughout the state to celebrate the special occasions that occur on and between those two days. Motorcycle accidents and other vehicular crashes often increase during this span of time.

Some car accidents happen when not all the cars are moving

Those who have been in similar vehicular collisions in Wisconsin understand the shock of being struck by another vehicle at a red light. Many car accidents occur when one or more vehicles are stopped at traffic lights. The sudden jolt and jarring that occurs when a moving vehicle rams into a stationary one is not something one is soon to forget.

4 important steps to take after a dog bite

Pet owners are expected to be responsible for their animals when they are out in the open, but the reality is that animals are animals and they may bite without warning. While some dog breeds are more aggressive than others, all breeds have the capability to bite without advance notice. Injuries from a dog bite can range from simple scratches and punctures to debilitating head wounds and even death. When a dog bites, the owner may be responsible for covering any costs incurred as a personal injury.

Party-goers beware: Animal bites increase during the holidays

It is logical to assume that more road traffic during the holiday season in Wisconsin may lead to an increase in motor vehicle accidents. Less obvious, however, is the fact that the number of animal bites suffered by travelers and party guests also rises during the holidays. Such incidents range from minor to tragic, and dog owners, as well as party-goers, will want to take every precaution to keep themselves and others safe.
