Workplace injury results in employee's death

Sometimes, people hurt themselves by accident. If the consequences are light, it's easy enough to write off the event as a life lesson. But it can be be harder to get over an injury or death that was caused by someone else.

Personal injuries or wrongful deaths, the legal term for fatal incidents for which someone else is liable, can happen in a variety of situations. Traffic accidents and animal attacks are both common reasons for injuries grave enough to justify seeking financial damages. Workplace accidents may be complicated, since individuals as well as organizations may be responsible for the unsafe conditions that caused or contributed to the accident.

Madison man faces federal charges in alleged robbery

People facing criminal charges have a lot to deal with, and the level of government that levied charges against them is probably not one of their biggest considerations. However, the difference between federal and state criminal charges is far larger than the juries or judges who try to deliver justice.

A 33-year-old man from Madison was indicted by a grand jury in connection with a robbery at gunpoint earlier this year. The suspect showed a firearm to employees of a pizza shop during the incident before attempting to elude capture in a nearby park. He was ultimately arrested by Madison police then taken into custody on a federal warrant.

Divorce is not as difficult as it seems in Wisconsin

Divorce is one of the most stressful events in a person's life, especially since no one goes into marriage thinking it could end. Fortunately, the state of Wisconsin makes it easier than it has been historically in many places around the United States.

Wisconsin is a "no-fault" state when it comes to divorce. This means the only legal grounds required are for spouses to agree that the marriage is broken beyond repair. In most cases, only one spouse must believe this for a Wisconsin judge to approve a filing for divorce.

Set yourself up for success by asking for a divorce the right way

Asking for a divorce is not expected to be easy, even if you're ready to move on from your marriage. This is a difficult conversation for both individuals, as you're forced to come face-to-face with your failed marriage and the future.

When you take all the right steps when asking for a divorce, it's much easier to move through the process in an efficient manner. This doesn't mean you won't face challenges, but at least you're doing whatever you can to put yourself in position to minimize the impact on your life.

How can Wisconsin police check for drunk drivers?

Drinking and driving should never mix, but that does not stop some people from thinking they are not too drunk to drive. The lack of good judgment that comes with alcohol consumption or drug use makes it dangerous for all other Wisconsinites on the roads. But even if a driver is suspected of drunk driving, they have rights that should be understood.

How do law enforcement officers verify if a driver is drunk?

OSHA fines contractors after Wisconsin death

From car accidents to domestic animal attacks, there are several ways that a person in Wisconsin may suffer an injury that is someone else's fault. We often take the blame for accidents and say that an injury is our own fault, but injuries or deaths caused by other people's actions or inactions are difficult to take and often require justice through compensation.

Workplace injuries and deaths are rare since the U.S. Occupational and Safety Administration (OSHA) and its Madison counterpart regulate conditions that cause excessive risk. The federal agency recently leveled the highest fine possible against a pair of utility contractors after they struck underground gas lines and caused an explosion that claimed the life of a Sun Prairie firefighter.

The importance of documenting a crash

A car accident can be a disorienting and terrifying experience. So, a lot can be going through a person’s head in the immediate aftermath of a crash. There are certain things though it is important to make sure don’t slip through the cracks.

One of these is properly documenting the crash right after the accident, assuming one isn’t too injured to do so. When there isn’t much documentation of a motor vehicle accident, pursuing a claim for fair compensation for injuries and damage caused by the crash can be more difficult. The lack of documentation could greatly lengthen the process and increase the barriers to getting the sought-after result.

Do Wisconsin courts still award one parent custody in divorce?

The new year brings with it hope for a new future. For numerous couples across the state of Wisconsin every year, January also marks when one spouse chooses to file for divorce. With the stress and pressure of the holidays behind you, it is much easier to focus on what you need to be healthy and happy in the new year. For some families, the only option may be divorce and the fresh start that it offers.

If you share children with your spouse, the prospect of divorce is likely frightening. You may worry about whether you will get to have an ongoing relationship with your children. After all, horror stories about custody outcomes are common. Understanding how the Wisconsin courts handle custody proceedings can help you understand the likely outcome in your case.
