3 children suffer personal injury after dog attack

Dogs can be wonderful pets, and in most instances they are friendly to humans. Sadly, some dogs attack and are aggressive toward humans. Causes of attacks may be related to their training, owner mistreatment, fear or protection of their territory. Unfortunately if animals attack humans, serious injury can result. Personal injury attorneys in Wisconsin can inform animal bite victims of their legal rights and offer appropriate legal counsel.

Family may have litigation rights after fatal car accident

Despite numerous traffic laws, regulations and advancement in car safety technology, car accidents continue to occur in Wisconsin. Being a victim of a car accident can seriously alter a person's life. Unexpected medical bills, car repair and or replacement costs accumulate quickly, creating financial stress for many victims. Personal injury attorneys guide victims through their options for possible financial compensation for accident-related expenses, including options for filing a wrongful death lawsuit when a tragic death occurs. 

A tragic car accident can be overwhelming to deal with alone

People, including young, inexperienced drivers, travel the Wisconsin roadways in many types of vehicles every day. Unfortunately, the inexperience of some teenage drivers can increase their risk of being involved in a crash. Recently, a terrible car accident involving two vehicles resulted in three deaths and seriously injured another.

Family alleges medical malpractice after daughter's death

Wisdom teeth extraction is a procedure that has routinely occurred for decades. Despite its common occurrence, it is a medical procedure that requires monitoring for the safety of a patient. If a Wisconsin oral surgeon neglects to follow standard safety procedures, he or she may endanger a patient's life. Recently, in a nearby state, a family has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against an oral surgeon, claiming his negligent actions may have led to their daughter's death.

A car accident may be the result of negligent driving

Motorists who make the unfortunate choice to ignore Wisconsin traffic laws and regulations can potentially face consequences in criminal court. Victims may also choose to pursue monetary damages in civil court regardless of the outcome in criminal court. Recently, a 21-year-old man was formally charged in criminal court for alleged negligent driving that may have contributed to a car accident. If he is convicted of any of his criminal charges, it may aide in establishing negligence in a wrongful death lawsuit.
