Automotive travel comes with an inherent risk of becoming involved in an automobile accident. There are a range of conditions that can cause a Wisconsin accident, including vehicle malfunction, roadway obstructions and weather conditions.

One recent apparent drunk driving accident provides an example of how the choices that drivers make can influence the lives of others with whom they share the road.
Wisconsin drivers assume a heavy burden when they get behind the wheel of a vehicle. Not only are they responsible for their own safety, they also assume responsibility for the safety of their passengers as well as others with whom they share the road.

One Wisconsin woman is now facing charges in connection with a car accident that killed two of her friends.
Wisconsin parents invest a vast amount of time and energy in ensuring the safety of their children. We carefully check their toys for product recalls, make sure they eat food that is as healthy and pure as possible and teach them to be careful and aware of the dangers within their home and school.

The recent death of a 13-year-old boy from a car accident caused by a drunk driver is a prime example of how quickly a child can be lost to the actions of another.
