What are Statutes of Limitations in Car Accident Claims?

What If I Was Hurt Because My Airbags Deployed?

Your car’s airbags are designed to protect you during a hard collision. If your airbags deployed during a motor vehicle accident, odds are, you were hit with quite a bit of force. While airbags mitigate the risk of more serious injuries and death, they can cause certain injuries during deployment - especially if the airbag was defective.

Can a “Fender Bender” Cause Serious Injury? 

Minor car accidents where there is relatively little damage to the vehicles, or “fender benders,” are by far the most common type of car accident. You have probably been involved in at least one fender bender during your lifetime. Sometimes insurance information is exchanged, a dent is patched up, and that is the end of the situation. Other times, fender benders can cause injuries much more serious than the damage [...]

What is Negligent Truck Maintenance?

Trucking accidents can be devastating. The size and weight of a commercial truck make wrecks involving them particularly dangerous, especially for those riding in smaller vehicles.

Is the Driver in Back Always At Fault in a Rear-End Collision?

In some states, the answer to “Is the rear driver always at fault for an accident? is yes. Wisconsin is not one of those states. Even if your vehicle rear-ended another vehicle, the driver in front can still be found partially or even completely responsible for the car accident depending on the circumstances. If you were hurt in a rear-end collision and feel that another driver was responsible, you should [...]

Should I Take a “Handshake Deal” After a Car Crash?

It is a common scenario after a seemingly minor car accident - the driver who caused the crash steps out of her vehicle, checkbook in hand. “How about instead of dragging the insurance companies and the police into this,” she says, “I just write you a check for the damage right now? How does $500 sound? It’s just a little dent.” While this kind of offer can be tempting, it [...]

What Are My Legal Options After a Rideshare Accident?

Rideshare services like Uber and Lyft have become a very popular way to get around. People generally feel safe using these services, but rideshare vehicles can and do get into car crashes. Rideshare drivers can become distracted and cause an accident just like everyone else on the road. Or, another vehicle driven by a careless third party can cause an accident involving the rideshare vehicle you were riding in. No [...]
