Texting while driving can be a dangerous practice, increasing the possibility of the driver getting into an auto accident, which is why Wisconsin state law has banned the use of texting while driving. According to Wisconsin Statute 346.89, subsection 3, drivers are forbidden from composing or sending texts or emails in electronic form while driving. This would easily apply to smart phones that many Wisconsin residents own and use in their daily lives. However, state law does provide exceptions to texting prohibitions.
Summer is well underway, and the warm weather means owners and their canine companions are spending more time at the park, beach and other locations populated with visitors. While dogs may be man’s best friend, injuries from dog bites can happen. There are many kind and loving dogs, but erring on the side of caution is in your best interest, especially if you have young children with you.
If you have been injured while at work in Wisconsin, you may feel the impact on your wallet. Being off work while recovering from an injury can be difficult in many ways, but trying to support your family and keep from falling behind financially can create even bigger worries and add more stress to an already difficult situation. Luckily, if you file a workers' compensation claim, you may be able to get payment for lost wages.
