A final investigative report may not be available for weeks, but Wisconsin authorities believe that a hunting related shooting that left one man dead was a tragic accident. The accident was investigated by three Douglas County conservation officers who recreated the shooting in order to determine whether it was an accident. Even though the shooting may have been an accident, it does not preclude the family of the victim from filing a wrongful death claim.
Drivers in Wisconsin know that when they should driver differently in inclement weather than when the sun is shining. There are several weather and natural phenomena that can reduce visibility on the roads and make it more difficult to drive. The possibility of having a car accident when visibility is reduced becomes greater.
Every driver on the roads in Wisconsin is counting on other drivers to be in control of their faculties, obey the rules of the road, and be alert for obstacles. When a person gets behind the wheel of a car after drinking, they are forgetting about everyone else on the road and selfishly risking the lives of everyone around them. Driving drunk dramatically increases the possibility of having a car accident.
Most people who ride bicycles enjoy breathing the fresh Wisconsin air and admiring the scenery. Of course, riding a bicycle is also good exercise, but for some, that is just an added benefit. One obvious difficulty with riding a bicycle is having to share the streets with other vehicles. Bicyclists are vulnerable to being involved in a bicycle accident just like any other vehicle on the road.
Failure to yield the right of way. This may just be one of the most common citations written after a car accident. When a driver fails to pay attention and properly yield to another car when required, the end result is often an accident at worst and a near miss at best. Every driver in Wisconsin has at some point felt that rush of adrenalin that comes with knowing that you narrowly missed either hitting a car or being hit by a car because you weren't paying attention.
The Wisconsin roads are full of all kinds of vehicles--from 18-wheelers to bicycles. Bicycles, of course, are some of the most vulnerable vehicles on the road. The riders have little to no protection if they become involved in a car vs. bicycle accident.
The term, "personal injury" is often used, but what exactly does it mean? "Personal Injury" is a blanket term for cases and legal actions relating to harm suffered by one or more individuals. Lawsuits stemming from bodily harm sustained by car accidents, slip and falls, dog bites, defective products, or other incidents
involving a lack of due care would all be considered personal injury cases.
