What can you do if a life is unexpectedly lost?

It is inevitable that people have to deal with the coming end of life. It always feels unfair, but nothing feels more so than the unexpected death of a loved one. Many families have a chance to discuss estate plans and say their goodbyes. It feels like a double tragedy when someone departs without giving survivors that chance.

Milwaukee Car Accident at Work

In a Wisconsin car accident at work the case is processed differently compared to a non work-related car accident. Regarding medical bills, if workers compensation is paying auto accident medical bills, there is no limit to the treatment or in your choice of treatment. Generally, automobile medical pay coverage has low limits and not everyone has health insurance. So it is often beneficial if workers compensation insurance covers the medical bills from a car accident on the job. But keep in mind, the workers compensation insurance company gets paid back according to the formula in Wisconsin Statutes Sec. 102.29 for the bills it paid. There is interplay between workers compensation and the potential car accident damages recoverable. For this reason it is helpful if your attorney has experience or a working knowledge of both workers compensation and personal injury law. If you are involved in a motor vehicle accident while working, be aware of this before hiring an attorney.

Work-Related Cervical or Neck Injury - Surgery

Rarely is a Wisconsin work-related cervical or neck injury case scheduled for immediate surgery. The doctor may suggest immediate surgery if there are signs of pressure developing on the spinal cord or if muscles are becoming weaker very rapidly. But most of the time, even in the case of cervical radiculopathy, shooting pain down the arm, conservative treatment for the work injury will be pursued. For most work-related neck conditions, doctors prefer to try nonsurgical treatments for a minimum of three months before considering surgical options. Most people with neck pain tend to get better, not worse. Even people who have degenerative spine changes tend to gradually improve with time. Surgery may be suggested when severe pain is not improving.

Police policy in Wisconsin may cause more car accidents

When a person is surrounded by thousands of pounds of steel, it is easy to feel invincible. But anyone who has been in a high-speed accident can relate that cars and trucks can be damaged badly enough to cause injuries to the people inside. Although fatal accidents are rare in Wisconsin, they still happen when the circumstances are wrong.

Wisconsin business group focuses on opioid use at work

Workers have always taken risks to earn for themselves and build careers. One risk that is especially visible on construction crews or industrial worksites is related to the trust that co-workers must have for each other. Another person's mistake or negligence could result in serious injury or death on the job.

Work-Related Cervical or Neck Injury - Treatment

Relief of Work-Related Cervical or Neck Injury symptoms starts with Nonsurgical Treatment. Whenever possible, doctors prefer to use treatments other than surgery. The first goal of these nonsurgical treatments is to ease the pain and other symptoms. The health care providers will work with you to improve your neck movement and strength. They will also encourage healthy body alignment and posture. These steps are designed to slow the degeneration process and enable you to get back to your normal activities.

Spring brings flowers and motorcycles back to Wisconsin

Since motorcycle riding in Wisconsin is very dangerous in winter, it is lucky that it is also rare in winter. But thawing fields yield beautiful flowers and warmer temperatures bring bikers back onto the roads of the Badger State. This annual event means that drivers have a new calculus when staying safe on the roads.
