Wisconsin woman dies in alleged drunk driving car accident

In a single moment of inattention, often caused by something as seemingly simple as failing to notice that a traffic light has changed, a driver can cause an accident that will have long-lasting implications for many people. Unfortunately, when alcohol is combined with driving, it seems that the risks of inattention are even higher. Wisconsin police believe that a recent fatal car accident was caused by a driver who was under the influence of alcohol at the time.

Family awarded almost $30 million in medical malpractice case

Expectant parents are typically filled with excitement and anticipation over the impending birth of their child. Unfortunately, many people forget that having a child can be medically complex, placing both the life of the mother and the child at risk. Many in Wisconsin require skilled care by a physician who is sensitive to the needs of the child and the mother and is prepared to take appropriate action during times of distress. One out-of-state family claims that their medical malpractice resulted in significant injury to their child.

Wisconsin police investigate suspected wrong-way car accident

Drivers in Wisconsin likely expect certain hazards while they are driving. Wildlife unexpectedly entering a roadway or a driver who changes lanes without checking his or her blind spot could be anticipated and possibly avoided in some situations. However, most do not expect a vehicle being driven the wrong way on the roadway. Police are currently investigating an alleged wrong-way car accident that sent four people to the hospital.

Alcohol use suspected in fatal Wisconsin car accident

There are many actions that a driver can take that can increase his or her chances of causing an accident. For example, alcohol consumption has been a contributing factor in many fatal car accidents in Wisconsin over the years despite efforts to educate drivers of the potential consequences of driving under the influence. Police have recently accused a driver of drinking and driving after a rollover accident took the life of a teenager.
