2 lives lost in wrong-way car accident on Hwy 70

Every year, far too many people die from injuries they suffered in crashes on Wisconsin’s roadways. Many of these car accident victims died because another driver was negligent. Therefore, since it is up to surviving family members to deal with the aftermath of the death of their loved ones, part of their responsibilities might be to explore their legal rights under Wisconsin law in connection with the filing of a wrongful death claim.

Investigation underway following fatal Wisconsin car accident

Those who utilize Wisconsin roadways likely have the reasonable expectation that all drivers will strive to ensure that they do not the jeopardize the safety of others. This includes declining to consume drugs or alcohol before getting behind the wheel. Unfortunately, some people -- despite knowing the risks of driving under the influence -- continue to make the choice to drink and drive. Police apparently believe that one man's decision to engage in such behavior cost another man his life in a recent car accident.

Those who chose to drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol have left many families struggling to cope with a tragic loss. While prosecutors attempt to hold drunk drivers responsible for their actions, nothing can fill the hole that a fatal car accident creates in a family. Unfortunately, two families are left mourning an unexpected loss after a car crash in Wisconsin that is believed to have been caused by an intoxicated driver.

Half million dollar judgment in medical malpractice case

Many people in Wisconsin suffer from debilitating pain. As a result, they seek relief from medical care professionals to either alleviate or help manage the pain. Unfortunately, one out-of-state woman claims in a medical malpractice lawsuit that the treatment she received for back pain only complicated her medical situation.

No criminal charges filed in fatal Wisconsin car accident

For families in Wisconsin, learning that one of their loved ones died unexpectedly as a result of another's actions is a great shock. In such a situation, some solace is provided by the knowledge that justice will be served. Even in cases that do not result in criminal charges, such as one car accident that resulted in the loss of a teenager's life, justice can be sought through the civil court system.
