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.

Construction dangers to others are shown in bridge collapse

When there is a serious construction accident, usually the ones who are affected are those who were working on the site at the time of the accident. It is always unfortunate when someone is injured in an accident, regardless of whether they are workers or those who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. When it comes to construction projects in Wisconsin and elsewhere that are in areas accessible to the general public, innocent bystanders can be seriously injured or killed.

Study: drowsy driving more dangerous than previously believed

Hayward residents have too often seen the destruction that a drunk driver can cause on our roads and highways. While everyone in America has become increasingly aware over the years of the threat of drunk drivers, few understand that in many ways, drowsy drivers pose an even greater threat to the safety of motorists and pedestrians.
