Negligent entrustment in Wisconsin

You know that the potential of being involved in a car accident in Hayward is always there, yet you likely still feel comfortable taking to the streets anyway due to the assumptions that other drivers are as safe and responsible as you are. Yet not all are, and even when such drivers indicate their carelessness or incompetence behind the wheel, people still seem willing to allow them access to vehicles. Many have come to us here at the Lein Law Offices after having been involved in accidents with such drivers wondering if there is any way to hold the people who entrusted them with vehicles legally responsible.

Relaxing trucker drive-time rules a threat to public safety

Commercial trucks often substantially outweigh smaller, non-commercial vehicles, and because they are so heavy and massive, they pose more of a threat to Wisconsin motorists than the average car or truck. At Lein Law Offices, we understand that trucker drive-time rules exist to protect motorists from truckers who may operate their tractor-trailers while drowsy or fatigued, and we also recognize that relaxing the current rules dictating truck driver drive times and rest breaks could significantly hinder highway safety.

Treating bite injuries in the aftermath of an attack

When any animal attacks, the bite injuries left behind can have potentially long-lasting consequences. Wisconsin residents who become involved in such attacks may have to deal with painful and extensive recovery periods that leave them emotionally, physically and financially drained.

What is osteoporosis?

When people in Wisconsin talk about slip-and-fall accidents, osteoporosis is often part of the conversation. Though osteoporosis is not a cause of accidents or falls, it may make the effects of a fall worse if you have it, resulting in fractures and other serious injuries that may not have occurred in the absence of the condition. 

Can a car crash paralyze you?

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.

Flying snow and ice may be evidence of negligence

Roads throughout the country become hazardous during the winter months, and Wisconsin is no exception. Among the most common causes of winter injuries are slip-and-fall accidents and car wrecks on slippery roads. However, there is another source of winter weather injuries that is easily preventable and too often forgotten. Hardened snow and ice flying off moving vehicles are immensely dangerous. 

Deadly Wisconsin Snowmobile Accidents Puts Focus on Safety

The death of a 37-year-old man in a Wisconsin snowmobile accident has authorities urging safety as the riding season begins. snowmobileinjury.jpg The incident occurred in Schoepke, about 20 miles southeast of Rhinelander, after the rider missed a curve on a public trail and continued into the woods, where he struck a large rock and overturned. Authorities believe alcohol may have been a contributing factor, according to the State Journal. Our Hayward injury lawyers note it was the third Wisconsin snowmobile death this riding season. Last year, the Wisconsin Division of Natural Resources reported 14 deaths, compared to 16 deaths during the 2016-2017 snowmobile season.
