What you should know about Chapter 13

If you have ever considered bankruptcy, you probably know that when you file a personal bankruptcy, there are generally two ways that individuals or families are allowed to file. That would be thought Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which is typically known as a liquidation bankruptcy since it usually wipes out most types of debt, and Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which is considered a type of reorganization bankruptcy.

What exactly is workers' compensation?

Although you may think that workers' compensation is a government-controlled program, it might surprise you to learn that it is a type of insurance that while state-mandated is actually paid for by employers instead. This insurance is used to cover payments made to employees who become injured or disabled due to an accident while they were performing their duties at work. It can help to pay for their medical costs.

Major factors in fatal accidents

Have you ever wondered what transportation factors cause most fatal accidents in Wisconsin? In order to find out, the information from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) has been broken down and analyzed, and five different factors were found to contribute frequently. FARS is run by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA).

Should you file bankruptcy?

Deciding whether or not to file bankruptcy is a difficult decision for a person to make. Filing bankruptcy not only affects your credit, it can affect your reputation and even your self-esteem. Before you decide to move forward there are some things to consider.

What you should know about liability and company vehicles

If your car is hit by another vehicle due to the driver's negligence, it is usually the other driver that is liable for damages. When the vehicle that hit you is a company vehicle, however, that may not always be true. In some cases, it may actually be the employer's responsibility to pay for the damages.
