I tragic demolition incident in Milwaukee illustrates the confluence of risk factors that make construction among the nation's most dangerous occupations.
Auto insurance rates are on the rise nationwide.
Stress, strain and repetitive use injuries occur in many Wisconsin workplaces, from offices to construction sites and everywhere in between. Though they can affect just about any area of the body, many specifically affect the shoulder, wrist, hand and other parts of each upper extremity.
If you are a Wisconsin resident who fears that winter will never release its grip on our state this year, you are not alone. Unfortunately, your days of snow shoveling and driving on icy and snowy streets and roads do not appear to be over yet. This, in turn, puts you at even more risk than usual of becoming involved in a motor vehicle crash. Even more unfortunately, a car crash could easily paralyze you, confining you to a wheelchair for the rest of your life.
