Motorcyclist dies after suffering personal injury in accident

A rider on a motorcycle is typically more vulnerable than a driver in a car. Even when the motorcyclist wears a helmet that can protect him or her from head and brain injuries, the rest of the individual’s body remains exposed. It is, therefore, not uncommon for motorcyclists to suffer catastrophic personal injury, or even die, in accidents involving motorcycles and cars.

Uninsured motorist may be held responsible for fatal car accident

Motor vehicle accidents occur without warning and are capable of producing serious injuries to those involved. When an accident involves a motorcycle and a full-size vehicle, the injuries are more likely to be life threatening. Because there is no way of knowing when an accident will occur, Wisconsin drivers are required to have vehicle insurance to assist with costs associated with any damage inflicted by a car accident.

A Wisconsin expecting mother may be more prone to a car accident

A car accident can occur for a number of different reasons, from distracted driving and drunk driving to inclement weather and auto defects. In Wisconsin, there are many things on the highways that can pose danger to a driver. However, what some may not realize is that a pregnant woman may be more at risk for being involved in a car accident.

Records indicate that he has already faced at least one medical malpractice case in the past. In light of the allegations he is facing, the medical board preemptively suspended the psychiatrist's license.
