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. 

Mexican hotel faces wrongful death suit by Wis. woman's family

Many college students from Wisconsin travel to warm-weather destinations during vacations from school, but such trips may sometimes prove dangerous. A 20-year-old woman died last year in a hotel swimming pool in Cancun, Mexico as a result of drowning after allegedly drinking tainted alcohol she obtained from a hotel bar. Claiming that the hotel knowingly served alcohol that was unsafe, her family has now filed a wrongful death suit against the hotel. 

A look at cognitive distraction and hands-free cellphones

Although talking and texting on a hand-held cellphone is not illegal for Wisconsin drivers, the dangerous practice takes thousands of lives throughout the United States every year. As a result, many people have started using hands-free cellphones as a way to continue engaging in business while minimizing visual and manual distractions. Companies market hands-free cellphones as a safe alternative to using hand-held cellphones while behind the wheel. Study results show, however, that hands-free cellphones may not be as safe as some might think.

Can posting on Facebook ruin my personal injury case?

If you are injured, naturally you would want to talk about the event with your family members and friends. Like most residents in Wisconsin and elsewhere, you might have Facebook and other social media accounts. It would only be natural to post about what happened on social media, right?

How can you escape from a road rage incident?

It would seem like road rage is an unfortunate sign of our times. Many Wisconsin residents are stressed out and in a hurry. When these factors are combined with impatient drivers, slow-moving traffic or just someone having a bad day, the results can turn deadly. Aggressive driving and road rage threaten the safety of drivers across the country every day.
