Wrongful Death Archives

What does the statute of limitations mean for wrongful death?

Each state, including Wisconsin, has laws that govern how long you have to take action in a civil case. These time limits are called statutes of limitations. Understanding some of the basic points about statutes of limitations can help you know how to proceed with the wrongful death case you wish to file in connection with your loved one's passing.

Losing a loved one through wrongful death or catastrophic injury

Any traffic accident is a horrible event for the people involved. Just last week, we discussed an accident that claimed the life of a bicyclist when he was struck by a pickup truck. That is a harrowing reminder of how important it is for drivers to pay attention when they drive. Unfortunately, not all drivers are vigilant when they are on the roadways.

Fatal accident claims the life of a bicyclist struck by truck

As the warmer months close in, bicyclists are going to start sharing the roadways with vehicles more and more. All drivers have to make sure they keep a lookout for bicycles because an accident between a bicycle and a vehicle can be serious. In fact, these accidents can often be deadly. A recent accident in Sheboygan County claimed the life of a bicycle rider.

Dumbwaiter accident claims life of young Wisconsin woman

Most people don't go to work with the thought that they will have to deal with a situation that can kill them. That is especially true for bar employees who aren't doing jobs that are considered life-threatening. Sadly, there are accidents that might occur on the job site that can be fatal. The recent death of a 21-year-old Wisconsin restaurant employee highlights the need for all employers to ensure their workers remain safe.

What is a wrongful death claim after a car accident?

In our blog post last week, we discussed the story of the 20-year-old man who died when his vehicle was broadsided by another vehicle. That horrible tragedy might have some of our Wisconsin readers wondering exactly what happens in a wrongful death lawsuit. Getting the answers to some very basic questions might help our readers to understand more about what it means when someone files a wrongful death lawsuit.

Broadside accident kills 20-year-old man in Wisconsin

Drivers who don't pay attention to what is going on around them put everyone around them at risk for getting into a serious accident. While many people think of accidents that are serious being caused by drugs or alcohol, sometimes they aren't. The sad fact is that some serious accidents lead to injuries that can lead to death of the victim. One such accident occurred in Coleman, Wisconsin, on Wednesday.

Wisconsin parents sue over child's death at nanny's hands

Parents in Wisconsin are claiming that a nanny they hired to watch their child, who was just 3 months old, actually killed the baby while it was in her care. Moreover, they say that the woman was drunk on the job when the incident occurred. They say that this is in keeping with a past history that the woman has of both violence and abuse of alcohol.

Construction accident kills 30-year-old Wisconsin man

Making sure that construction equipment is in good repair and properly maintained is one of the basic responsibilities of companies that own these heavy and dangerous machines. When a company fails to meet that most basic of responsibilities, tragedy can occur. A recent accident at Ithaca High School in Wisconsin shows just how catastrophic accidents involving heavy machinery can be.

Chain reaction causes accident that kills 1 woman

Paying attention to what other drivers are doing on the road can help to keep the occupants of your vehicle, as well as the occupants of other vehicles safe. When drivers don't pay attention to the vehicles around them, they can easily miss vehicles slowing down or turning. In those cases, serious accidents can occur. A recent accident along Highway 23 in Wisconsin proves this point.

Tree considered safe causes accident, 11-year-old girl killed

Going on a family camping trip should be lots of fun. When you are heading out to a campground managed by the Department of Natural Resources, you probably assume that you are going to a place that is reasonably safe. One of the last things you should have to worry about is falling tree limbs, especially when you consider that Wisconsin state law demands that all trees be inspected twice per year for safety. Sadly, however, these inspections don't necessarily mean that you can camp without worrying about being injured by one of these trees.
