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.
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.
Brain injuries are very serious injuries that have the potential to affect a person's life in ways they might not realize. These injuries can cause communication issues, motor skill dysfunction and a host of other problems. In some cases, these effects can last for the rest of a person's life.
Last week, we discussed how an animal bite can affect you. There is one very serious complication that can occur that anyone who has been bitten by any animal might consider.

We have previously discussed cases that involve animals biting humans. Not too long ago, we discussed the case of the man in Lowe's who was bitten in the face by a snake.

Knowing about what leads to animal bite infections might interest our readers.
When you get into a car accident that you don't feel is your fault, you might opt to seek compensation for the injuries you suffer in the accident. What you might not realize is that even though you don't think you are at fault, there is a possibility that you will be found partially at fault for the accident. That, however, is only one factor that might affect the amount of compensation you receive.
When you are injured in an accident, you might make the choice to file a lawsuit for compensation. From there, you might come across a variety of issues that you weren't really aware of prior to the lawsuit being filed. One of those is being called for a deposition. Both sides in a lawsuit have a right to take a deposition of the other party, according to the Civil Procedure of Wisconsin.
In our blog post last week, we covered the story of the customer who was bitten by a snake at Lowe's. Fortunately, it wasn't a venomous snake. That fact, however, doesn't mean that the person didn't suffer injuries from the snake's attack. All snakes have teeth that can cause injuries. This might interest some of our Wisconsin readers.
When you decide to do a remodeling job on your home, you might head to the home improvement store to look at different items and decide what you want.
