Three new drunk-driving bills in Wisconsin proceeding to Senate

The battle to keep drunk-drivers off of Wisconsin roadways has been a hard fought battle that has not come without its losses. According to the Century Council, Wisconsin police arrested nearly 28,800 people for driving under the influence across the state. While impressive, in that same year, an estimated 196 people lost their lives because of drunk drivers. And according to law enforcement and state lawmakers, a majority of these deaths could have been avoided had tougher laws been in place.

Wisconsin car accident kills passenger, both drivers injured

Despite the amount of information available regarding the dangers of drinking and driving, many in Wisconsin continue to get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol. No one believes that he or she could cause a deadly car accident after drinking. Unfortunately, many drunk drivers do cause accidents that not only kill, but leave themselves and others injured as well.

Father-in-law expresses frustration over deceased trooper's death

Losing someone as a result of another driver's negligence is never an easy situation to handle. But when the criminal courts do not deliver the sense of justice and closure you deserve, it can make that loss even more painful.

Finding ways to reduce drunk driving in Wisconsin

The state of Wisconsin loses about 200 lives each year as a result of drunk driving car accidents. Since even one loss from a preventable accident is too many, lawmakers in the state are looking for new ways to stop the reckless behavior and prevent these accidents.

Family may file wrongful death in boating accident

When someone rides as a passenger in a vehicle operated by a friend, there is an implied level of trust that the driver will do what is reasonably necessary to make sure that friend gets home safely. Nevertheless, fatal accidents can still occur. Many families choose not to file wrongful death claims against a friend in this situation. However, when it appears that the driver may have willfully neglected to seek aid for a dying friend, taking legal action may become an appropriate legal option for a family seeking accountability for the tragedy.
