Wisconsin Age Requirements for Boat Operators

In Florida, the search continues for two boys who disappeared while fishing in the Atlantic Ocean. The boys, although only 14 years of age, were legally operating the boat, as Florida law states that boat operators must be at least 14.

When Dogs are No Longer Man's Best Friend

In a 2011 survey by Harris Interactive, 92% of dog owners responded that they considered their dog to be a member of their family. Although many of us are extremely close with our dogs, dogs can and do bite. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that approximately 4.5 million dog bites occur each year. Unfortunately, children are more likely than adults to receive medical attention for dog bites.

Failure to stop alleged cause of fatal Wisconsin car accident

There are likely hundreds of safety features that people encounter as they drive on Wisconsin roadways. Most people barely even register things such as painted lines on the road and guardrails. However, ignoring traffic lights and traffic signs -- features that likely prevent accidents and save lives -- can have tragic consequences. For example, police claim that a recent car accident was caused by a driver who failed to stop at an intersection.

Misuse of anticoagulant could be medical malpractice

Many people use certain drugs to help maintain their safety and create a higher quality of life. Drugs such as Coumadin, an anticoagulant used for those with certain heart issues connected to blood clots, has likely saved many lives. However, medical malpractice regarding the drug could potentially harm some patients in Wisconsin.

OWI charges filed after fatal Wisconsin car accident

The Fourth of July is a time of celebration for the vast majority of Americans. While some celebrate with alcohol, it is just as important that drivers ensure they are safe to drive on the holidays as it is any other day. Unfortunately, Wisconsin police say that one driver was drunk when he caused an accident that resulted in a fatality.

Wisconsin man suffers serious injuries in car accident

Many people find a motorcycle to be a practical way to seek a thrill. Unfortunately, because of the size, one can often become involved in a car accident. Other than a helmet, there are essentially no physical barriers to protect motorcyclists when struck by a more traditional motor vehicle. One motorcyclist is recovering from serious injuries suffered after apparently being struck by a car in Wisconsin.

Special Wisconsin license could prevent OWI accident

Warnings regarding the dangers of drinking and driving are prevalent in today's society. Despite these warnings, drivers continue to get behind the wheel of a vehicle after consuming alcohol, potentially placing others at risk of being involved in an accident. While Wisconsin has attempted to enact laws that would provide proper consequences for OWI offenders, some lawmakers claim that certain laws could allow such individuals to reoffend.
